Tell us a little bit about yourself

Hello! My name is Jordan and I am a doctoral intern here at the counseling center. I am originally from the Chicago-land area, but I call the Berkshires, MA home. Animals play a big part in my life and I love spending my free time with my dog, horse, and two goats! I also love to read, spend time outdoors, and watch movies.

What has been your most embarrassing moment (either at work or play)?

When thinking about my most embarrassing moment, many came to mind.  The one I love most involves my dog, Cato. My dog has this strange obsession with socks, dirty, clean, it doesn’t matter, he loves them. We often call him Dobby (from Harry Potter—he’s a free dog!). Well this one time I brought my dog over to my aunt’s house for a visit. Time had passed and we couldn’t find Cato. I called him and after a while he came running downstairs with a mouth full of my aunt’s dirty socks! I was so embarrassed! He had gone upstairs, into their bedroom and dug through her dirty laundry basket and found her worn socks! She laughed about it and I told her thankfully it wasn’t her underwear because he has been known to dig those out too! J

What is your favorite comfort food?

My favorite food is most definitely sushi, and pizza, you can never go wrong with pizza!

If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I would love to travel to New Zealand for its beautiful scenery, and Italy for its delicious food.

 Your favorite quote…

“It is a joy to be hidden, and disaster not to be found.”- Donald Winnicott

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” – Brené Brown

“But in the end it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer.”-Samwise Gamgee
