Jordan Fiorillo Scotti Ph.D.
Jordan Fiorillo Scotti, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and school psychologist and aspiring Bodhichitta living in Whitefish, MT. Dr. Scotti attended high school at Germantown Academy near Philadelphia and received her B.S. and B.A. at Tulane University in New Orleans. After completing her undergraduate studies she spent several months teaching English in Thailand, including at a women’s Buddhist monastery. This experience introduced her to meditation, yoga, and Buddhist teachings, which have since shaped her personal and professional life. After leaving Thailand, she earned an M.A. in School Psychology and a Ph.D. in Psychology at The University of Montana. Her dissertation evaluated the impact of a mindfulness-based group intervention for high school females struggling with disordered eating and body image concerns. In the last decade, Dr. Scotti has deepened her understanding of Eastern spiritual traditions through self-study and participation in various meditation and mindfulness retreats and workshops. She blends her knowledge of Western psychology and secular Buddhist philosophy to promote wellness through mindful awareness of self and others, offering psychoeducational, diagnostic, and therapeutic assessments, and individual and family therapy.
