As the past few years have passed by, Jeremy Jones has dedicated his time in graduate school working with children and families. Jeremy is a kind, empathetic, and outgoing LPC Associate. A passion of his holistically, would be building relationships and giving people the space to be their authentic self. Therapeutically, Jeremy aims to do just that, as well as meet the client where they are at in whatever season of life they find themselves in.
Jeremy received his Bachelors in Science degree from Dallas Baptist University, majoring in Psychology, and minoring in sociology and legal studies. He then continued his education at Southern Methodist University to receive his Master’s of Science in clinical Mental Health Counseling with a concentration on children and adolescent counseling. During this time, Jeremy did his clinical internship at Denton County Friends of the Family, where he worked with kids, teens, and even led groups who have had experience with domestic violence and or sexual assault. This internship experience helped solidify Jeremy as trauma-informed counselor.
Additionally, Jeremy finds value through a developmental model as he works through the lifespan. With children and teens, adopting more of a Client-Centered approach where children can communicate their needs through the use of play, while teens can communicate with the aide of activities or talk therapy depending on their needs. However, as individuals move out of the play and activity therapy model, Jeremy values the key components of Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT). Emphasizing the importance of the therapeutic relationship, but also valuing authenticity and accountability tied to behavior and the emotions behind them.
Jeremy’s experience ranges from dealing with anxiety, depression, suicidality, dealing with change, peer relationships, family dynamics, sexual assault, and domestic violence. His population of interest ranges from kids, teens, college students, and individuals who are in transitional seasons of life.
Jeremy lives in Dallas with his dog Gatsby and is super excited to begin this journey a part of the Might Oaks Counseling team while under the supervision of Dr. Sarah Carlson. During this time of supervision, Jeremy is committed and enthusiastic about furthering play therapy skills under Dr. Carlson, as well as creating a safe space where clients feel comfortable and confident enough to be their authentic self.
