Brittney S. Jordan PsyD
I have several years of advanced training and expertise in CBT and evidence-based treatments for adults. In accordance with this lens, I specialize in treating OCD utilizing Exposure and Response Prevention. I utilize this framework as the backbone of my treatment but will tailor the process, pace, and interventions based on individual needs in a collaborative and goals-driven way. I have extensive experience with different subtypes, including obsessional-dominant subtypes and subtypes that co-occur with insomnia. I utilize compassion and flexibility to develop a supportive foundation from which my patients can be challenged to achieve a new relationship with their OCD.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Human Development from Boston College, my Ed.M./M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Teachers College Columbia University, and my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at Yeshiva University. Prior to private practice, I worked at the Veteran Affairs Hospital for several years, where I served as the Assistant Director of the Clinical Resource Hub. As one of the early clinicians in telehealth, I developed an expertise in treating psychological issues virtually, such as OCD. Additionally, I have trained in various sites across the greater NYC area, in hospital, university, and clinic settings.
As previously mentioned, I started my career as a psychologist working in the Veteran Affairs health system, a setting that prioritized training and clinical experiences related to building cultural competence and working with complex, diverse populations. My access to these types of training opportunities and clinical experiences early on in my career has led to a life-long appreciation of the value of continued education, experience, and discussion in these areas. I embrace a culturally sensitive approach in my practice and welcome individuals from all backgrounds.
