About me

Hello! My name is Virginia Jones, I am a licensed mental health counselor in South Dakota. I also have my undergraduate degree in addiction studies. I have been providing high quality services for over 6 years. My passion is helping others to live a life that is fully satisfying.
I have worked with clients from 4 to 70 years of age, with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, and addiction issues - to name a few. I have a background in complex trauma therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and have gained a deep appreciation for all therapy modalities. I will utilize the best therapy approach based on your needs and goals.
I believe in helping clients by first establishing a caring relationship through positive regard and trust. My past clients say that I am warm and approachable. I too have had struggles and know it can be difficult to reach out for help. Let’s work together and see if we are a good fit. I am here to support and empower you.

I was surprised how personal it was for doing telehealth. She had books, work sheets, and wrote down my concerns. She also emailed me prior to my apt with some questions to get to know me better. i have enjoyed my two sessions
