Diane Jones is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in MD who sees clients for trauma, depression, anxiety, women’s health concerns, LGBTQ+ topics, and addiction. She also frequently sees clients who are dealing with a seemingly unshakeable lack of confidence, as well as low self-esteem or hopelessness.
Diane takes a mindful approach in sessions, often guiding clients with techniques that help them feel grounded in the present moment. Her approach is informed by a variety of therapy types, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Such a strengths-based, insight-oriented blended approach empowers each client to deeply understand their strengths and develop their personal resilience.
Diane strives to make each of her clients feel safe and welcome, which is why she strives to create a warm atmosphere that’s completely free of judgment. The receptive, relaxed environment of her office often helps clients process past and present realities, including racial trauma and life transitions, in order to move towards healing at their own pace and comfort level.
Diane welcomes clients of all backgrounds and identities; her practice, located in Brookland, is open to millennials, persons of color, LGBTQ+ individuals and couples, as well as clients who identify as transgender. She looks forward to meeting you!
