My Approach to Helping

My name is Amy Lucia Jones, LCSW. I have experience dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, trauma, relationship concerns, anger management, and loss. I am trained in CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Skills, Trauma Informed Care, and a wide range of other modalities. My treatment style is eclectic and utilizes a broad spectrum of various styles and skills. I enjoy working with clients ages 13 and up, individuals and couples. I am also LGBTQ+-affirming.

I use a wide range of skills, most based on Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I am also trained in Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Informed Care, Sexual Abuse Treatment, and other modalities. I prefer to meet clients where they are and develop my treatment around a person's individual needs and desired outcome.

I work with teenagers, adults, and couples. I have provided treatment for Anger Management, Sexual Abuse, Domestic Violence, Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, and others. I am very comfortable dealing with all of the above, as well as some lesser-known conditions.

I will try to build a therapeutic relationship by asking open-ended questions, offering reassurances regarding HIPAA, and providing a judgment-free setting, where people can feel comfortable talking about anything and everything that brings them to therapy. I have been told that I am affirming and kind, as well as empathic, understanding, and supportive.

My uncle, who was my best friend and constant source of support, was a Clinical Psychologist. When I started college, I took as many classes as I could in Psychology and majored in Human Development. I chose to pursue my MSW while working in a residential program for people with Severe, Persistent Mental Illnesses and decided that I wanted to provide a more clinical perspective, as well as to provide supervision for new clinicians. I also have a wide, varied, and interesting history of life experiences that have shaped me into the clinician I have become, and I feel that I have a deeper empathy for many people as a result.

I like to meet a client where they are when they come into therapy. I approach goal setting by using open-ended questions to find out what treatment modality would be the most effective, discussing this with the person, and asking for feedback about their comfortability in utilizing what I think would be helpful.

Clients should expect a judgment-free zone, and I reassure them that they do not need to talk about all of their concerns, experiences, or trauma in the first session. I ask for the basic information I need to have, to remain in compliance with my licensure, and attempt to provide a comforting place for a person to feel safe.
