Dana Wise Jones, LCSW
Why are you here?
If your answer is, to feel better, to grow, to find answers or to improve your quality of life, I’m here for you!
My name is Dana and it’s my life’s passion to help others make sense of this thing called LIFE. Life is full of challenges, both big and small. These challenges meet us at every corner…relationship problems, loss of a loved one, inability to concentrate, unfulfilled dreams, etc. My goal is to support you in identifying what stands in the way of your contentment and to work through it in a meaningful way.
Together, you and I may need to confront some of your long held beliefs or behaviors. We may have to have hard conversations. I will take the journey with you. Change is difficult but not impossible. If you have the desire to change and are willing and open to change, I will create a safe, non-judgmental space for our journey. With compassion, patience, brutal honesty and a good dose of faith, you will gain a greater sense of hope that can be the foundation of change.
I am an experienced Social Worker with a background in counseling, education, domestic violence and crisis. I specialize in children, adolescents and young adults. I am comfortable with a wide range of issues including but not limited to, depression, self-esteem, trauma, parenting, anxiety, ADHD and school issues. Our treatment will have a holistic approach, based on your specific needs. I blend methods from different therapies, including, person-centered therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, reality therapy and mindfulness.
I have worked in a variety of settings, including, hospitals, schools, a domestic violence shelter and the court system. If you are ready to take your first (second or third) step to mental wellness, I’ll meet you halfway and begin the journey with you- no matter what step you are on. I’ll consider it an honor to be on your team.
