About Me

Hello! My name is Cynthia Jones, a clinician with a master level degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Winston-Salem State University (May 2012) and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from High Point University (2003). I am currently a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Clinician (LCMHC). I have devoted most of my career to the field of Human Services, beginning in 2002 as a Behavioral Modification Technician at a Level III group home for adolescent females.

I have over 15 years of working experience with Children, Adolescents, Adults, Couples, and Families in individual and group settings; including experience working with Veterans and their families. My interests include working with all populations to overcome adversities and obstacles which may include:

 parents and their children
 individuals coping with role changes, job loss, career changes
 persons coping with grief, anxiety, stress, and depression
 youth adjusting to functional deficits and life challenges

My belief is that therapy provides an opportunity for growth, self-discovery and insight in the context of a safe, supportive environment. Therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, significant reductions in feelings of distress and an overall improved well-being.

Psychotherapy has been shown to have many benefits. However, it is difficult to predict what will happen in terms of therapeutic outcomes or to provide a clear estimate of time required for each client to reach his or her personal goals. One of the best indicators for success in therapy is the motivation level of the client such as being open to the process of change, being consistent with attending sessions and working on goals outside of sessions.

Also, my belief is that each client is unique and presents with his or her own counseling needs and concerns. Utilizing one therapeutic approach may not work best for everyone. Therefore, I will utilize integrative models involving insight oriented, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Brief Strategic Family Therapy, Solution-Focused, Person Centered and System of Care. In our work together, it is expected that you will participate in the formation and completion of counseling goals so that our sessions will be meaningful and helpful to you. I may occasionally assign homework as a means of providing you with further reinforcement of concepts discussed in sessions and to prompt further insight and self-exploration.

There are many reasons why people seek counseling. The fact that you are seeking counseling demonstrates your commitment to your mental and emotional health as well as your inner strength in identifying when seeking support is necessary. I believe that clients have the capacity to learn, change, and grow so that they may experience more meaningful, healthier, and happier lives. Whatever your reasons are for seeking services, I look forward to partnering with you on addressing whatever counseling needs you may have.

First time using betterhelp & I was connected to Cynthia, she’s wonderful. She listens, empathetically, empowers you , and helps uncover some of the base/deeper issues. Its definitely a choice I don’t regret making!

Cynthia is understanding and listens to what you have to say and the material that she hands out after a session help.

Written by J.E. on Nov 29, 2021 after therapy with Cynthia for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Cynthia is very good at balancing professional with personable. She listens but also asks questions that make me think which is something I didn’t have with my traditional therapists. I don’t know if she does this for all of her clients but she always schedules our sessions which is a HUGE weight off of my mind and I can just add it to my personal calendar. Working with Cynthia helps me feel seen and heard which in turn makes me feel valued and respected.
