Francis Jones III , LPC
I am a psychotherapist, also known as a professional counselor, licensed in Arkansas, the state where I live. For more than 20 years, I have used my skills, education, knowledge, and experience to help children, adolescents (many of whom were at-risk and/or emotionally troubled youth) from the ages of 7 to 18 years old and adults from 19 years of age and older, individually and/or with their families. I enjoy helping each of my clients work through their issues to resolve even the most difficult problems and conflicts.
In approach to psychotherapy, I use cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), reality therapy, and psychoanalysis that I have modified to fit the individual needs of every child, adolescent, adult, and family I see. I use the first three to five sessions with each client to build the positive rapport between us that is needed for us to have a mutual relationship of trust and confidentiality. I show my respect for each of my clients by using a respectful tone of voice, keeping my interactions positive and maintaining a nonjudgmental attitude. I have found that doing so makes it much easier for each client to disclose very personal and often uncomfortable issues, emotions, and behaviors. I also use my empathic and sympathetic skills to understand each client's problem(s) from his/her individual point of view, and I make sure each of my clients understands the pros and cons of every choice he/she makes.
Using that approach has enabled me to help many children, adolescents, and adults to resolve their family conflicts, anger control problems, overcome depression, cope with anxiety, raise their self-esteem, work through unresolved abuse (whether it physical, emotional, or sexual), grief over losing a loved one whether by death or some other way, oppositional problems, ADHD, and social issues (IE, social anxiety, or poor social skills) to name a few. I have done so in a wide range of settings including an outpatient office, the client's home, or school. on inpatient acute care psychiatric units and in long-term residential care programs.
I respect anyone who makes the tough decision to face and overcome these types of problems. I understand these are often exceedingly difficult problems that usually involve disclosing extremely difficult, unpleasant, and uncomfortable things to share with anyone. By doing so, you have taken the important first step to obtaining the happy and successful life you want, need, and deserve.
I look forward to working with you to make the challenging but equally rewarding changes that lie ahead!
Sincerely, Dunn Jones, III, MA, LPC, NBCC

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Francis Jones III . We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
He is a real person with real experiences. He is a good listener, he has to be with the way I talk a million miles an hour. Mostly, I am a good judge of character, and I feel he cares about what he does and trying to help. You cannot be good at anything that your heart is not in and I think his heart is in this 100 percent.
