She has found success working with clients who struggle with daily living due to anxiety, mood disturbances, psychosis, or behavioral issues.

Brittney is committed to providing effective, evidence-based care and mental health education. Her approach to therapy is best summarized as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)-focused, client-centered, and strength-based. Brittney provides a collaborative and supportive space where she challenges each client to discover their personal strengths. These strengths set the foundation for further skill building based on the client’s needs. Each therapy session encourages client participation in both the initial treatment planning and throughout the course of ongoing sessions. Establishing genuine rapport with clients while maintaining appropriate boundaries is essential for a comfortable, therapeutic environment.

It can be a daunting task to open yourself up to someone you’ve just met. The right therapist can help make this process as comfortable as possible. Brittney’s approach to therapy is adapted to fit the needs of the client. Sessions may involve practicing assertive language, learning healthy coping skills, processing difficult life events, challenging unhealthy thoughts, or exploring triggers for anxiety. The foundation of each approach is built on the client’s personal strengths. Brittney believes that every client possesses at least three strengths that can be used as assets within therapy. Through a collaborative effort these strengths can be used to help build a more fulfilling and healthy quality of life.

Dr. Patricia Jones Review

★★★★★
Therapy was a brand new experience for me and i was actually very nervous about going. Dr. Jones was so great and helpful! She made me feel comfortable the very first day. She provided me the tools and guidance to combat my negative thoughts and anxiety. I was given great handouts that I can even carry with me in my wallet. I really enjoyed speaking with her and looked forward to each session and finding new tools to help me improve my self-esteem. I am truly grateful for the guidance I received from Dr. Jones!
Thriveworks Counseling Chesapeake

Excellent Rapport

★★★★★
First of all, I was so afraid to go to counseling yet open up to a total stranger. However, Dr. Crayton is THE exception to the rule. I didn't feel like I was being judged, or that I was "crazy... She is so kind, calm, and very easy to talk to. She helped me overcome my hesitation about counseling. She allowed me to talk and "hear" my inner voice. Her style and compassion for helping people seems to come naturally. She allowed me to see things from a variety of perspectives but did not discount my feelings and perception. I feel like a new person just from my initial session. I welcome the next session and have already reflected on my mini homework assignment that she suggested. Dr. Crayton has given me a new outlook. I will definitely continue with her!

DTRs changed my life lol!

★★★★★
I have spent the last year learning so much about myself and mental/emotional health! From day 1 Dr. Patricia Jones, has been open, welcoming and nonjudgmental. She truly created a space for me to work through the things I was going through there in the office but also gave me the tools that continue to help me now. DTRs changed my life lol, but seriously I would recommend Dr. Jones in a heartbeat! Also Thriveworks is simple to work with and the newsletter articles are great

Great Place for People Considering Therapy

★★★★★
At first I was super hesitant on going to therapy for myself. Once I found out about Thriveworks, I started up for about a month. Dr. Jones, Patricia Jones, helped me with much more than my mental health and it exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend her if you are considering therapy. It is a very reasonable priced place to go to if you have a great copay as well. I changed for a better during my time there and would 101% recommend if you are considering counseling.

Great Guy!

★★★★★
I have accessed therapy myself but have never had the opportunity to see James for therapy. I have known James for a long time, probably about ten years and have always found him to be eager to help and able to help. He is a very devoted father and a good friend. I would trust him as a friend and as a therapist.

Brittany Morris is a top choice!

★★★★★
I had the pleasure of Brittany Morris working with me in my 4th grade classroom this past school year! She not only helped me manage my many students with anxiety and social adjustments, but she helped guide me along the school year as well. Brittany has a knack for keeping chaotic situations calm, reminding adults and children that they are being heard and are important. Brittany shares stories and advice that easily help children and adults in not so easy situations. She was not only a counselor to me and my class, but also became a friend. I will treasure everything Brittany taught me and my young students! I cannot say enough positive and wonderful things about her, I highly recommend her to anyone!
