Carolyn Jones

(LPC, RN)

About Me

Hello! My name is Carolyn Jones and I have worked in the mental health field in Colorado for the past 28 years - both as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Registered Nurse (RN). I received my Bachelor's in Nursing in 1978 from the University of Nebraska and my Master's Degree in Counselor Education in 1994 from the University of Wyoming. I have had the opportunity to work with older adolescents and adults doing individual, couple and group counseling in a variety of different settings such as outpatient, inpatient and partial hospitalization programs. I utilize several different therapeutic , evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as psychodynamic approaches based on the needs of the individual. I have several areas of specialty including the treatment of eating disorders and body image concerns and have been a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS). My other specialties are depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and identity work as it relates to motivation, self-esteem, self-confidence. I believe every individual is a unique being capable of living a fulfilling life. I believe that continuous growth of the mind/body/spirit brings healing and the capacity to live life in this manner. With a background in counseling, nursing and spirituality, I am able to offer you this holistic approach for ultimate growth and healing. I believe a nonjudgmental, respectful, accepting therapeutic relationship is essential in providing a safe climate for self-exploration and growth. My goal is to meet you where you are at each moment in time and empower you to meet your life values and gain the ability to find relief and live a fulfilling life.

Written by R.A. on Feb 15, 2021 after counseling with Carolyn for 4 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Carolyn ALWAYS meets me right where I am and supports me in the ways I need most. We talk frequently about which behavior change stage I'm in (trans-theoretical model) and she helps me come up with goals that allow me to move forward in a meaningful way. When I'm feeling stuck somewhere, she offers fresh ideas on goals that might be helpful for me. I'd recommend her to anyone!!!

I've been working with Carolyn for a few months now and she is absolutely fantastic. Primarily, I was struggling with anxiety, and Carolyn was a friendly and calming presence that helped me gain the tools to work through what I was going through. She is non-judgemental, easy to talk to, and doesn't shy away from the tough topics. For the first time in years, I feel in control of my emotions and anxiety, and it is so freeing. I highly recommend Carolyn.

Carolyn is non-judgemental about personal issues and is genuinely trying to help you get through your problems. I have only had her for a few sessions, yet I can already tell that some of the techniques that she has taught me have vastly improved the quality of my daily life.

Carolyn has been amazing! She really takes the time to listen to what I need from her, talk through my challenges objectively, while respecting the journey I am choosing to go on. She helps me create weekly goals and gives me techniques and practices that will help me achieve them. She is also very engaging and available throughout the week. I highly recommend her!

Carolyn is wonderful. I picked her because she has a nursing background. She actively listens and provides me with a number of tools each time we meet to manage my anxiety and thoughts. I like that she asks if I have questions about what we discussed. I also appreciate her reaching out with a kind message prior to our session. I highly recommend Carolyn!!!

Carolyn is an excellent counselor because she listens, does not judge, projects and teaches confidence, walks you through crises, and gives actionable steps to help you grow. She taught me how to speak kindly to myself and calm my anxiety. I definitely recommend her.

Carolyn is very kind and has worked hard to help me achieve my goals. She gave me tools I needed to feel better and stayed in constant contact to check how I was doing and what was working for me. She is a great woman to talk with. She is warm and knowledgeable and I felt like she understood exactly what I was going through. I hope she knows how much she helped me!

I have been working with Carolyn for 6 months now, and have tremendously benefited from her counseling as I support my daughter for Anorexia. Anorexia is a very complex mind-body illness and the family members can play a very important role in the recovery by educating ourselves and understanding her behavior. This allows me to use correct words with her, and watch by own behavior with her so I am supporting her in a healthy manner, and not enabling her illness further. Additionally, my own stress has been very difficult as I watch my sweet daughter suffer, so I had been in need of finding coping skills for myself. Carolyn's expertise, her very compassionate but clear guidelines and feedback to me have made be more confident and capable in dealing with this difficult illness. I am finding a lot of strength from her therapy, and most importantly I am handling my daughter better and can see the difference in my interactions with her. I am thankful to Carolyn for coming into my life when I needed someone to guide me through this. In addition to our weekly video chats, I am able to send her quick texts on the BetterHelp app if an issue arises and I need her thoughts, and Carolyn replies back very quickly with more tips to help me. I have recommended BetterHelp to friends as access to a great therapist like Carolyn would not have been possible for me without this platform... while I also do this from the convenience of my time and home. Thank you Carolyn, and thank you Betterhelp for being here for me!

Carolyn is a great therapist and an even better person. She is a cheerful lady who is extremely patient with me, and loves to fully listen to me before providing her input. She also extremely professional with checking in, following up with "homework" and making sure the patient is achieving what they are set out for. She is also mindful of their priorities and is very non-judgmental in providing her input and listening to her patient.
