About

Welcome.

 

I’m Jordan Zipkin, a licensed psychotherapist, comprehensive healthcare concierge, and owner of Westside Therapy.

 

 

Jordan Zipkin, LMFT

Psychotherapist in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

 

I find that I have the most passion and success helping people who are motivated and ready to improve their lives, value accountability, professionalism, and open communication, and know that therapy is about therapist and client working together to help improve their lives.

 

If it sounds like I’m describing you, then there’s a good chance we’ll work well together.

 

My private practice, Westside Therapy, is located in a comfortable office in North Palm Beach, Florida.  I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.  I’ve been a therapist for the past 5 years and I absolutely loved what I do.  I help adults and adolescents free themselves of profound sadness and stress, improve their ability to treat themselves in kinder and healthier ways, and thrive in relationships through individual therapy.

 

MY APPROACHES

 

Holistic

  • We will look at all aspects of your life, including your mind, body, and spirit.  Along these lines, I am a comprehensive healthcare concierge, which means that from the moment we start working together, until the time we finish, I’ll provide you with the appropriate referrals to local experts in a variety of complementary healthcare areas.  Such areas include, but aren’t limited to, massage therapists, pain specialists, and acupuncturists.

 

Psychoanalytic 

  • When it is appropriate to do so, we will collaborate to understand the origin of early life experiences on the formation of your struggles.  This kind of increased understanding often proves very helpful in decreasing emotional distress and symptoms, as well as reducing the likelihood of future difficulties.

 

Cognitive-Behavioral

  • We will work towards understanding your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, as well as clarify the unhealthy thoughts that seem to contribute to your current symptoms.  We’ll also consistently strive towards helping you think, feel, and behave in healthier ways.

 

Strength-Based

  • We’re often conditioned to think in negative and critical ways, and this leads us to constantly recognize what we did wrong, as opposed to what we did well.  Especially when we are suffering, it’s easier to focus on the negatives in ourselves and the world around us.  A large part of what we’ll do together is build on your strengths, resources, and healthy coping skills, and, in doing so, hopefully help you look at yourself in more compassionate and kinder ways.
