Clinical Director

jsiegel@lakehouseacademy.com

Jordan received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Franklin & Marshall College and earned her master’s degree in social work at the University of Pennsylvania. She began her work in the field by facilitating and developing positive youth development programs in conjunction with her college and local nonprofit organizations in the surrounding inner-city area. While in graduate school, she worked with people of all ages in an inpatient psychiatric hospital and as an outpatient therapist for children and adolescents ages 3 to 17 at a community mental health center in Philadelphia.

Prior to joining Lake House Academy, Jordan worked as an adolescent and family therapist at a private therapeutic boarding school for high school-aged adolescents. Her approach to treatment is grounded in attachment theory and attachment development. She also draws from trauma-focused treatment interventions, cognitive behavioral interventions, and family systems/structural family therapy.

In her spare time Jordan enjoys anything creative, artistic and active, from painting pottery to CrossFit workouts. She also spends a lot of time exploring the outdoors with her canine companion, Calvin.

Allison was thrilled at the opportunity to join the Lake House clinical team. She loves to provide support to our students and their families. Allison completed the Master of Social Work program at Western Carolina University, but her experience working with youth dates back to her teenage years, when she began volunteering with youth organizations in the Washington, D.C. area. She continued her volunteer work in Memphis, TN, and in Asheville before returning to school to fulfill her dream of becoming a therapist.

Her clinical experience includes school-based therapy in a public middle school, in-home family therapy with adolescents involved with the Department of Juvenile Justice using the Multisystem Therapy model, and residential work with adolescent girls in two other therapeutic organizations. Allison’s therapeutic practice involves cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, family systems theory, and various trauma-focused models. Allison also uses art, play and horses to help facilitate healing in her clients. Specialties include trauma recovery and working with LGBTQ youth.

When not working, Allison enjoys spending time with her family (both human and animal), taking in the beauty of nature, creating art, riding horses, travel and officiating roller derby games.
