Dr. Tim trained with the renowned Dr. T. Berry Brazelton at Harvard Medical School, where he developed his proven methods.

Adolescence can be a frightening and confusing time for both girls and their parents; but it doesn’t have to be that way. Dr. Tim Jordan helps parents reframe and normalize the developmental touchpoints all girls go through as they transform into a woman, providing perspective so they don’t lose sight of the forest (normal adolescent transformation) for the trees (symptoms like depression, anxiety and cutting). His common sense approach enables parents to be more confident and effective, reducing conflict and drama while remaining a strong influence in their daughters’ lives throughout adolescence and early adulthood.
