My name is Jordan Skalisky, I’m a master’s level clinician working on my PhD in Clinical Psychology. My primary area of focus is working with older adolescents and young adults, such as college students, who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, and/or substance use.

I love seeing others light up and find meaning within themselves.
