I offer a compassionate, supportive and direct approach to help you meet your needs and achieve your goals. Are you ready to explore your underlying, and probably ancient, beliefs that you hold about yourself (who am I?) and that fuel chronic negative thoughts and behaviors. We will work together to rediscover your authentic self, that person who was somehow left behind and is waiting for you to come back.

Whether small or large, If you're ready to make a change, I am ready to help. Let's talk through the issues that are holding you back and start taking positive action!

Dr. Daniella Jones, Ed.D, LPC


All of us have challenges in our lives, times when it's hard to know what to do and where to turn. Whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, marital or relationship conflict, an estrangement from an adult child or other family member or grief over the loss of a beloved pet, I am here for you. Sometimes these challenges can be too overwhelming to tackle on our own. Finding the courage and pathway to make positive changes through therapy and counseling can lead to a life full of health, wellness and growth.

I provide a comfortable, non-judgmental, confidential, and supportive setting for those who wish to find ways to improve the quality of their lives. Often, this involves learning skills such as identifying sources of stress, setting boundaries, improving communication, or addressing anxiety, depression, and self esteem.

Parenting a child or adolescent that is exhibiting challenging behaviors, not meeting developmental milestones, or experiencing distress can feel frustrating and overwhelming. Treatment can help address issues that are impacting functioning at home, school, and in social settings while providing caregivers with strategies to support their child or adolescent. I have experience in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and their caregivers. I specialize in providing Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, a treatment shown to be effective in treating many child and adolescent disorders.

The therapeutic process offers knowledge that translates into power to transform, heal and grow. My goal is to use this knowledge and my clinical skills to help individuals overcome the constraints that limit their growth and help provide access to the opportunity for self-fulfillment.

As an experienced psychotherapist, I have assisted many individuals, couples, and families in working through their life challenges. If you are experiencing emotional difficulties such as anxiety, depression, loss ,loneliness, and struggles, talking with a therapist is useful. 

My specialties include relationship difficulties and challenging life transitions such as: separation, divorce , career change, and illness. In addition, I work with couples, children of all ages, teens, parents, siblings and grandparents. I provide support for many who go through painful processes. I work with clients to find balance and satisfaction in their life and in their relationships. 

I am dedicated to providing you with a safe and supportive environment where no topics are taboo and all of your thoughts and concerns may be explored. Life transitions may result in depression, stress, anxiety, and anger. If you are feeling upset, confused, alone, or the desire to understand your self better, therapy may be for you.
