Professional statement

Candida Jones, is a therapist whose expertise is in the treatment and healing through trauma informed care. For over one decade Ms. Jones has practiced been trained, certified, and now has attained consultant status as an EMDR Therapist. Wholistic in approach, Ms. Jones sees healing as an outgrowth of achieving balance through healthy lifestyle changes combined with clinical modalities including mindfulness, therapeutic writing, breath-work.

Client centered, Ms. Jones engages clients through active listening, and is well-known for being responsive, present, articulate, easy going, energetic, and optimistic. Candida's practice combines evidence based techniques for trauma, anxiety, grief, loss, and depression. Candida works in collaboration with her clients placing emphasis on what makes them feel best.

For clients wishing to engage in Eco-therapy, outdoor walking sessions are available t in New York's Hudson River Valley only.

"The old Lakota was wise. He knew that man’s heart, away from nature, becomes hard; he knew that lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to lack of respect for humans too.”
