Velma Jones

(MSW, LCSW-R)

About Me

I am a licensed psychotherapist and certified life coach, who has over 21 years of experience counseling clients of all ages with respect to the varied concerns and/or challenges they may be confronting. Additionally, I have advanced clinical training in the areas of children, adolescents, and families. Plus, over the past 16 years, I have worked as a Professor of Graduate Social Work Studies in three major academic institutions. My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, working with those who have concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting issues, substance use disorders, relationship problems, and career challenges. For example:
- The executive who is attempting to determine his or her next move and needs a sounding board.
- The overwhelmed collegiate who wants to increase his or her academic performance.
- The exhausted parent.
- The man or woman who is having relationship anxiety and stress, particularly over power struggles.
- The wounded warrior/veteran who is having adjustment issues.
- The person who is experiencing feelings of abandonment, sadness, and/or grief.
My counseling style is one of support, honesty, understanding, and non-judgment. Also, it is important to note that I tend to be more solution-focused as opposed to problem-focused. My ultimate goal is to help each client free him-,her-, or themself from the heavy burdens they carry and move on to a life of happiness, joy, and fulfillment.
I truly applaud your courage in facing and desiring to positively change the challenges with which life has bought to you at this time. Please know that it will be my honor to partner with you in creating the successful life of your dreams.

Written by P.H. on Jul 07, 2018 after counseling with Velma for 3 months

We have received individual and couples counseling from Velma and find her to be an awesome listener and insightful advisor. She is patient and caring and gives concrete exercises and suggestions for steps toward improvement. It’s comforting to know we can reach out between sessions, if needed, through BetterHelp. Overall, it’s been a very positive experience and we feel fortunate to have found Velma.

Velma is supportive, responsive and empathetic. She has a results oriented approach, her insights and resources that she has shared have helped me immensely. She is caring and straight forward, and knowing that she is in my corner has brought a sense of relief to some of the stresses I've been feeling. I look forward to learning more from her.

Written by T.A. on May 11, 2018 after counseling with Velma for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career, and bipolar

Velma has been my guardian angel, we've been speaking for little over a year and I must say, I owe a big deal of gratitude to this angel of a woman! I see her as a second mother/close friend/life coach/therapist. Kinda all-in-one support package. I value her empathy, efforts, wisdom and knowledge and remain to be eternally grateful.

Written by M.E. on May 10, 2018 after counseling with Velma for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Written by D.E. on Apr 30, 2018 after counseling with Velma for 1 week on issues concerning relationship, and intimacy-related

Written by V.E. on Apr 27, 2018 after counseling with Velma for 1 year on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, sleeping, and self esteem

I have been working with Velma for quite some time now and I can honestly say she is one of the kindest, warmest individuals I’ve had the pleasure of talking to. She was there with me during a time in my life when I felt stuck, doubtful, unsatisfied, and not particularly optimistic. Slowly but surely, she has helped me come to a place where I feel much more positive, upbeat, and at peace with myself. Her recommendations for books and other materials are always spot on and she has a way of injecting humor into any situation, which I really appreciate. She has also helped me get in touch with my more spiritual side, which I credit for my increased happiness as of late. Overall she is an amazing person who has a special talent for reframing a bleak, painful situation into a more positive one.

Written by S.A. on Apr 18, 2018 after counseling with Velma for 6 months on issues concerning addictions, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, and parenting

Velma is an amazing human being who has all the tools for giving effective and supportive guidance. In addition to her exceptional educational background, she blends this intelligence with practicalities of life experience and common sense. She has a lot of compassion, yet doesn't "sugar coat" - she tells you like it is. When I add in her extraordinary emotional and intuitive intelligence, this formula that she offers works best for me!

I can not stress enough how grateful and appreciative I am that Velma Jones is my counselor. Her expertise in her profession, as well as her professionalism and understanding, make you feel that there is hope that your problems will be addressed in a positive manner. And Velma Jones LISTENS to what you are saying which, in today's world, is very uncommon! It difficult to admit to yourself that you have emotional problems.

If your are not located in her area, make sure that the counselor assigned to you is as good for you as Velma Jones is for me and many other patients!

I am so grateful I met such a wonderful therapist on this forum. My former therapist who I used to see retired last year and I was interviewing a variety of therapist locally. None of them worked out. I decided to try this service and I was paired with Velma, who I can say is just as wonderful and even more so then my former therapist. I have had major breakthroughs in a short period of time. Velma is very patient, wise, and just an overall special person. Everything she says is well thought out and thought provoking. I can tell she really cares about me, and she wants to see me get better. She doesn't sugar coat, and she also helped me leave a very toxic relationship. She provides many tools and has a lot of guidance. I am amazed that I could find such a high-quality therapist from the comfort of my own home. I highly recommend Velma and I thank her so much. This is just the beginning and I look forward to our work together.
