Jordan Yates | Johns Creek


Over a decade ago, Jordan’s passion for helping others through a traumatic past, family conflict, and low self-confidence helped pioneer switching careers from sports journalism to counseling. He has an extensive background working with children, teenagers, and adults that goes beyond just the counseling spectrum. Before earning a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy, he spent seven years in the sports journalism industry, covering local high school sports, the Atlanta Falcons, the Georgia Force, and the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Jordan’s career in counseling began with court-mandated diversion program groups geared to improve first-time offenders with issues such as anger management, domestic violence, substance abuse, and child abuse/neglect. Since then, he has moved to treating clients on a more voluntary basis with a non-conventional, activity-centered approach that works well with children, teenagers, and college-aged students.

Jordan earned certifications in child-centered, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TA-CBT) through the Medical University of South Carolina. He specializes in guiding children, teenagers, and adults through life's hardships, including death, divorce, ADHD, and bullying.
