Claire Jones, LSCSW

Claire's clinical experience includes working with obstacles in life such as PTSD, complex trauma, anxiety, depression, attachment-based concerns, ADHD, stress, grief & loss, and difficulties that accompany developmental diagnoses such as autism which can affect entire families. By practicing with several types of modalities Claire works to develop an approach you will find helpful and individualized. Interventions Claire works with include (but are not limited to) cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, EMDR, Gestalt therapy, ego state therapy, somatic experiencing techniques, and psychodynamic techniques.
