All Kinds of News for June 10, 2020
Trails Momentum, a wilderness-based program for young adults, is excited to announce that Jordan Siegel, MSW, LCSW will be joining their clinical team as a Primary Therapist in late June.
Prior to joining Trails Momentum, Siegel was the Clinical Director of a therapeutic boarding school for girls. In that role, she helped develop a research-based clinical model focused on interpersonal growth and healthy relationships. She also maintained a caseload while providing leadership to the clinical team and the residential program.
Siegel specializes in trauma and attachment-focused therapeutic techniques. She has received certification in Theraplay™, an attachment-based play therapy backed by research and principles that can be helpful for individuals of all ages. Theraplay™’s core principles of emotional regulation, sensory integration, and relational attunement can support young adults as they develop healthy relationships and a better sense of self.
Siegel holds a Master’s in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania and is a member of the National Association of Social Workers. She has presented at numerous conferences including NATSAP ( National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs), Wilderness Symposiums, and IVAT (Institute on Violence, Abuse, and Trauma).
Additionally, Siegel is trained in dyadic developmental psychotherapy (DDP), an attachment-focused therapy that supports the development of attachment-based relationships. DDP is known for its effectiveness working with individuals who have experienced adoption and other traumatic events.
“I’m excited to be able to take the skill sets of my attachment, relational, and trauma work and apply it to the young adult population,” says Siegel. “I’m looking forward to supporting young adults as they navigate the intricacies of learning how to be an adult while focusing on working through their struggles.”
A born and bred New Yorker, Siegel comes from an inherently creative background. In her free time, she loves to dance, cycle, and spend quality time with her family.
“I’ve respected and collaborated with the Trails team for years,” comments Siegel. “I’m excited to experience what Trails Momentum has to offer and the value of wilderness therapy.”
