Life is a journey with its ups and downs. The pleasures and the memories of the good times can be masked by pain that we are enduring. Too often we suffer alone, trying to find something that will take away our pain or help us to forget. Lilla Jones trusts that counseling can offer individuals the opportunity to grow and develop into their full potential while working through both the ups and the downs of life's journey.
Lilla is passionate about creating a safe space for clients to explore any past, present, or future concerns. Problems like depression, anxiety, or addictive behaviors can surface which take control of our lives and make it impossible. Marriages and relationships encounter trials which can seem overwhelming. Sometimes, by ourselves, we are simply unable to find the peace we want to experience. Lilla brings warmth, skill, and humor to the counseling relationship. She believes that clients benefit from genuineness, acceptance, and empathy within the counseling room. Lilla encourages clients to open their awareness to their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and uses a skillful balance of support and gentle confrontation when working with clients. She is committed to providing unique treatment that honors each person's individual needs.
