Mandisa Jones, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker and founder of Ashe Counseling & Coaching. I am often described as optimistic and carefree. My clients experience me as warm, enthusiastic and open minded. I enjoy being a personal champion for my clients and invested in facilitating change and growth.
Many of my clients are entrepreneurs, artists or professionals who are extremely busy. Therefore, I strive to provide a counseling experience that keeps you moving toward solutions and improvements. However, I recognize that not every person will fit with just one therapeutic approach and work with you to collaboratively develop a treatment approach to fit your needs.
I am particularly interested in working with clients dealing with anxiety. Anxiety manifests differently for each person. You could be a worrier, perfectionist, type a, angry, or some other form of anxiety. I utilize skills founded in evidence-based therapies including Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I help clients create distance from their negative thoughts and empower them to make lasting changes. It is also important to me that my clients learned to skills to manage their symptoms
I grew up in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. I received my Undergraduate degree from Fisk University. I received my Master’s degree from Loyola University of Chicago. As a clinician , I have worked in diverse clinical settings including hospital, social service and private practice, I am also currently an adjunct professor, teaching mental health, at Malcolm X College. Working in diverse clinical settings have strengthened my passion for working with individuals dealing with various life stressors and demonstrating the resilience of the human spirit.
I enjoy socializing with my family and friends. I love listening/djing music. You can find me in New Orleans at least once a year.
