About me

Hi there! My name is Ally Jones, I am a professional counselor licensed in Pennsylvania. I have over 10 years of experience working with teens and adolescents. First as a special education paraprofessional and then more recently a mental health counselor within a school. I have worked with teens and young people with a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, peer and friendship issues, life transitions, Autism, ADHD, and much more. I also have experience supporting teens with childhood trauma.

Being a teenager is tough, it's some of the hardest years of your life. My belief is that everyone is doing the best they can with what they know how to do. My first task in therapy is always to build supportive relationships with clients and build trust before addressing any presenting issues. I believe building a trusting relationship is key to making change. With my caring and not-always-serious approach, I work with teens to come up with treatment goals tailored to their needs and allow them to guide how we will address these goals. My therapeutic approach is a mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Trauma Focused Therapy. I also love to include art and creativity in sessions.

Whether you want to focus on school issues or personal issues, together we can work to manage the stressors that come with being a teenager in this hectic world and get you to where you want to be.

Written on Jan 04, 2023 after therapy with Alexandra for 7 months

Alex is wonderful with my daughter, they seem to connect very well, and she provides helpful feedback and an ear to listen. Alex has also communicated well with us (the parents), so that we can reinforce messages, and change as appropriate. Would highly recommend.

Alexandra is compassionate and was very helpful in providing possible coping mechanisms for my ADHD and anxiety.
