Patricia Jones, Psy.D.

Dr. Jones previously practiced as a Licensed Psychologist in Maryland prior to relocating to the Hampton Roads area in Virginia during the Spring of 2017. She is currently a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of Virginia. She finds it to be very rewarding to assist adults with addressing mental illness and daily stresses of life. Dr. Jones has a passion to help clients become successful in effectively coping with various mental illnesses for diagnoses on a spectrum to include addictions, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and post traumatic stress disorder, among others. She assists individuals who struggle with substance abuse and gambling addictions, as well as, people with mood disorders, individuals encountering difficulties in daily living, and those who have experienced traumatic events.

Dr. Jones primarily works with clients from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy perspective. She works with individuals to assist them in recognizing their negative thoughts that are influential in producing negative emotions, which in turn, involves responding with a negative pattern of behavior. Dr. Jones also integrates Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, and Structural Family Therapy principles to collaboratively work with clients to help them to overcome dysfunctional thinking, emotions, and behaviors that prevent them from living productive and satisfying lives.

Dr. Jones’ goal is to assist clients with becoming “their own therapists.” Her clients are able to achieve this by utilizing strategies and solutions that were learned in therapy to solve other problems that may arise. Additionally, she works with clients to aid them in viewing themselves from a holistic perspective by considering aspects of their Physical, Psychological, Emotional, Spiritual, Cultural, Social, and Economic selves.

Dr. Jones obtained a Doctorate of Psychology Degree in Clinical Psychology in 2010 from Argosy University, The American School of Professional Psychology in Arlington, Virginia. She has since worked with individuals and conducted group therapy.
