Tiera Jones, LCSW-C
Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
I have over 30 years of professional experience in guiding children, teens, adults (individual/couples), and families through the process of change, understanding perceptions, identifying inner strengths to support emotional healing of past and present traumas, improving communication, building positive relationships, conflict resolution, and goal setting. The effort is to promote progress toward creating a satisfying quality of life, increase productivity and positive experiences. I use a holistic and eclectic approach to encourage discovery of personal hidden treasures that can be used in identifying your path and purpose in life. Remember, you only have control of your response to a situation, not always the situation.
Michael Shifter, LCPC
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor/Therapist
After growing up in the DMV area, I received my undergraduate degree in Dallas, Texas in Business Leadership and my graduate degree in Clinical Counseling in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Throughout that time, I have enjoyed various jobs where I have found opportunities to connect to others from diverse backgrounds. I have had the opportunity in working both in inpatient and outpatient care facilities, navigating both minor and major mental health issues with clients through numerous approaches.
As a positive, motivational, and solution focused therapist, I work to first meet your immediate needs by clarifying critical issues and sorting out the troublesome life perceptions. I will teach you about healthy coping skills that are so often already within you, enhancing them through dynamic holistic approaches.
At times, disruptive or traumatic story lines arise that I will help you navigate with narrative therapy styles that integrate trauma-informed mindfulness skills. I will cater my approach to each person, often integrating expressive modalities through writing, art, or body movement to work on issues you may not be able to talk through yet.
My specialties include: Anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, addiction, relationship issues, and grief and loss.
