Get to Know Our Clinicians
Jordan C. Rigel, MA, PreLicensed Counselor
I approach each patient by helping guide them through their personal therapy journey and identify which areas they can change for the better. I use a combination of positive pillars philosophy and neuro-linguistic style of counseling for a flexible interaction with clients. My experience in helping clients from various walks of life, past traumas, and struggles has uniquely equipped me to help a lot of different individuals. I enjoy helping those who face personal challenges find new ways to live life more satisfied and abundantly. I currently work with adolescents (13+), adolescent families and adults.
I am a graduate of both Millersville University and Adler University with degrees in psychology, specializing in military trauma. I have gained experience working in the field as both a family-based therapist and an inpatient therapist. In both environments I have experience in providing trauma informed care. I am also a military veteran of the Army, Medical Service Corps, currently serving as a Reservist Captain.
Debra Belack, MA, LPC, NCC
I believe that maintaining and focusing on our mental health should be as normal as attending to our physical health, and just as important. Therapy is a way to work through the challenges of life, understand ourselves more fully, and work towards a place of wellness unique to each person. Therefore, I use multiple evidence-based modalities, coupled with a therapeutic style that is impartial, non-judgmental, and encouraging, specific to each person’s needs.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a certification in the treatment of trauma. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, with a concentration in Family, Children, and Youth, and a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. As a therapist, I’ve supported individuals with addictions, life stressors/transitions, and multiple diagnoses such as depression and anxiety disorders in outpatient, inpatient, residential, school, and community settings. More specifically, I specialize in working with women, children, and people who have experienced trauma. In the past 15 years I have worked with over 2,000 children (infancy through adolescents) and their caregivers, as well individuals who have experienced trauma (i.e. sexual abuse, domestic violence, car accident, etc). I look forward to beginning a journey of healing with you!
