Hi, my name is Tyisha Jones. I believe each child has a unique and special destiny. I am honored to hold space and guide young people as they express their resilience and creativity throughout the healing process to uncover their gifts.
I’m a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor in the state of Maryland, and I am currently continuing my clinical training under Kristian Owens at Resilient Child Therapy. I consider myself a holistic wellness advocate with an interest in centering and contextualizing facets of the Black experience while embracing African/Indigenous cultural frameworks. My approach promotes the whole child where I engage a child from a mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, environmental, and overall integrative perspective. I love using the arts and somatic activities, such as play, art-making, music/sound, movement/yoga, visualization/meditation/breathwork, and story-telling in my interventional approach.
As a native Washingtonian, I have worked in various school and community mental health settings where I have provided case and care management planning to young people and their families. With this experience, I encourage patient advocacy and informed consent through psycho-educational practices so families can exercise freedom and informed choice in their mental and medical health care planning and advance directives.
Additionally, I am a 200-hour registered yoga teacher. In my self-care time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends including my dog, Chumley, teaching and doing yoga, creating art, and traveling.
