Hello my name is Jordan Mealey and I live in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. I have earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling both from Fairleigh Dickinson University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor for the state of New Jersey, as well as a Board Certified Counselor through the National Board for Certified Counselors. I have worked in NJ public schools and both inpatient and outpatient mental health facilities with children, adolescents, adults, and families. I currently work primarily with adults who are struggling with mental health illnesses in an inpatient hospitalization setting. It has been my work with clients who are many times grieving a loss in their life, which is impacting their ability to function, as well as my own personal losses that brought me to the Grief Recovery Method.
In 2018, I was offered the opportunity to begin my training in the Grief Recovery Method. I was motivated to take this offer at the time for my client population who was having challenges feeling complete in their lives and feeling purpose, partly due to a loss they were grieving simultaneously. The training also gave me the safe place to process my own loss and it was emotionally ground breaking!
I truly believe in the Grief Recovery Method, as an evidenced-based program to explore and uncover emotional attachment to all different kinds of losses. This program allows a person a safe, nonjudgmental environment to be able to be emotionally honest and strive for peace in their past and current relationships. People have an opportunity to learn more about their own patterns of behavior related to coping, managing, and recognizing changes.
I provide one-to-one and group Grief Recovery programs, as well as the four-session program on Helping Children with Loss, using the book When Children Grieve also written by John W. James and Russell Friedman. The Grief Recovery Method can also be taught through professional workshops, seminars, informational sessions, or community/school meetings.
I hope when we cross paths, you will be able to become honest about your emotions and unburdened from a loss(es) to empower your own personal growth and healing.
The program has helped me to identify and connect the events in my childhood that led me to feel tremendous grief when I faced career loss in my mid-50s. Being able to make these emotional associations was extremely enlightening and liberating ... liberation from the weight of the grief. I had been searching for an explanation as to why my career loss was so devastating... and I’m so grateful that this program taught me the answer.Support GroupsParticipant in Belle Mead, NJ10/14/2019
