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.

Virginia is one of the kindest people I have had the pleasure of meeting in my life.
Virginia is always kind, attentive, supportive and helpful in every session. The care is genuine and has helped me grow as a person. Without Virginia's help I wouldn't be where I am today and I am very grateful for her help and support.
