Elizabeth Jones

(LCSW)

About Me

Hello, my name is Elizabeth, but everyone calls me Ellie. I have a master's degree in Social Work and Criminal Justice. I am a LCSW, licensed in KY and TN. My primary focus has been with the male population, people in addiction, and women with a trauma history. I enjoy working with all populations and strongly believe that people have everything they need to change their situation and outlook within. In order to help others meet their treatment goals, I typically use strengths-based, cognitive behavioral therapy, client-centered approaches, and dialectical behavioral therapy. My experience with individuals and families has been in the residential setting, family therapy, group therapy, and individual therapy settings. I look forward to working with every client, as i know that they are worthy and deserving of any change they so desire.

Written by S.T. on Feb 22, 2021 after counseling with Elizabeth for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Elizabeth Jones has great suggestions for multiple strategies to use for helping with anxiety. She is also great for discussing ideas and venting when needed.

Elizabeth listens to me but also helps me to listen to myself. She validates me but also helps me see when I'm wrong.

Written by K.A. on Jan 28, 2021 after counseling with Elizabeth for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Elizabeth is great! She listens to me and interacts with me. If I say something negative, she doesn't just accept my explanation, but rather poses questions back to me that cause me to think about what I just said in a different way...one that maybe I hadnt thought of. After really needing counseling for so long, and not having it because of time or not connecting with the right person, I am incredibly thankful I found better help and Ellie.

Written by C.H. on Jan 16, 2021 after counseling with Elizabeth for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

I appreciate the timeliness of her responses, that is huge in counseling. I was a bit reserved in trying an online service, but Ellie has changed my mind completely. She has created a welcoming environment, to talk about whatever is on my mind, and regularly checks in to see how I'm doing. Her schedule is flexible too, I like that we can talk about different days and what woks best.

Written by C.O. on Nov 14, 2020 after counseling with Elizabeth for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Elizabeth has been so helpful. I switched counselors when I first joined, and I’m so thankful for this match! She meets me right where I am. She is down to earth, and immediately made me feel comfortable. After only a couple of sessions, I feel like I already have practical solutions/strategies to use, as well as a great client-therapist relationship. She has also been great about accommodating my schedule.

Ellie is the model counselor: there to listen to you, offer advice, and just "gets" you. She also has offered tips on how to deal with my anxious episodes and keep that and my depression under control. I will definitely recommend her to others who may be seeking counseling.

Elizabeth has been so flexible and understanding. She checks in and engages me on whatever level I’m at, which is liable to change day to day. She balances psychological terminology with down-to-earth advice so that I feel comfortable and safe as if I’m with a friend but still receiving professional counseling. Highly recommend!

Ellie is very kind and really listens to me. She is quick to understand my feelings and current situation and offers suggestions on how to cope better and tries to direct me towards setting goals for myself. I’m very happy with her.

Written by B.E. on Aug 02, 2020 after counseling with Elizabeth for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

Elizabeth is amazing. We are hundreds of miles apart. Yet she has my back 100% Without fail she scoops me up and helps me to get back on track with spookily spot-on and well timed words. She is experienced, wise, calm, non-judgemental, clever, warm, funny and kind. She is brilliant and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Written by K.A. on Aug 02, 2020 after counseling with Elizabeth for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, and self esteem

When I was signing up with BetterHelp I was reluctant, nervous and overwhelmed. When I got matched up with Elizabeth I had no idea how lucky I had become!! We started out slow and she calmed me down. She really listened to me and learned about my past so that we could deal with my present situations. She is helping me learn more about myself, my goals and how to build my confidence moving forward! Because of this, my future doesn’t seem so bleak and worrisome... actually now I’m feeling excited about it! My relationship with my wife is the best it’s ever been and I owe that to Elizabeth. Taking a chance with BetterHelp when I was down and out and constantly feeling discouraged was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Thank you for everything Elizabeth!

Oh my gosh, in such a short time she has helped us so much. I have every intention of continuing on with her in the coming months. I really want to set my relationship up to last forever and be strong and healthy and ready for anything as a team. I really think she’s going to be able to help us get there. I feel like she’s really heard what we’ve said.

Ellie is such a great listener. She helps find the route cause for your issues and helps you feel so much better about yourself. I’m so glad I decided to get this app. My first Counselor wasn’t very helpful at all and I switched and got Ellie and I’m so thankful. She saved my relationship and made me realize my thoughts are normal.

Ellie Is where its at! She is helping me keep my erratic thinking ass accountable! Couldn't have picked a better person to help me.

Written by S.Y. on Mar 04, 2020 after counseling with Elizabeth for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and anger management

Elizabeth (Ellie) is WONDERFUL. I tried online counseling before through a different app and did not have a counselor who was supportive or very involved. Ellie is the complete opposite. It’s very clear that she cares about those she is helping and her guidance is professional yet personal. Ever since Ellie has become my counselor, I’ve noticed so many positive changes in myself thanks to her and the strategies she has introduced to me. I would highly recommend Ellie to anyone who is looking for a dedicated, professional, and relational counselor!
