Jordan de Kenessey Chapman, LCSW

Message from Jordan

I am a psychodynamic and relational therapist, and I believe that each person needs to find a therapist they feel genuinely comfortable talking to. I also believe that people grow and change through the relationship, so it’s important to work with someone who will challenge you when it’s necessary and appropriate. I have a genuine interest in a person’s past to understand how emotions and behaviors are functioning in the present. I use empathy and compassion to build a safe, trusting space where people can explore who they are and who they would like to become. I enjoy working with people from all walks of life, and I have experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship stress, to name a few. Before I became a therapist, I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Google, Inc., which gives me a unique ability to understand and address the different stresses that people can encounter throughout life. I’ve spent time as an amateur stand-up comic, and I think that humor can make therapy more enjoyable and worthwhile. I’ve also spent many years in my own therapy, so I really understand what it’s like to work on yourself with a therapist.

Get to Know Jordan

From your perspective, what is therapy?

To me, therapy is a relationship built on trust, a genuine interest and concern for another person's life, including their emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and anything and everything in between. It is a safe, confidential space where you can address issues that cause suffering in the present, and which ultimately helps you understand who you really are, and what is truly important to you in life.

What led you to become a mental healthcare practitioner?

The short answer is, the entirety of my life experiences to date. The long answer is that I have been very fortunate to be in my own psychotherapy treatment, beginning when I was twelve years old, and continuing to this day. It has been 17 years, and I struggle to imagine what my life would be like, or what kind of person I would be, without it. My own experience in therapy, together with my interest in psychology and human behavior, led me to seriously pursue psychotherapy as a lifelong career.

Where did you work before going into private practice?

Prior to graduate school and my clinical training, I worked at Google, Inc., in user experience (UX), on a team that specialized in research and recruitment for usability studies. During and after graduate school, I worked at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, The Institute for Community Living, and most recently, Community Counseling and Mediation.
