Children and teens go through so many changes and transitions. It can sometimes feel like you have a different kid day to day. One day you think things are finally heading in the right direction, the next day it feels like it is worse than it has ever been!
My name is Shequita Jones and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (License # 76045) with over 10 years of experience in the mental health field, who specializes in counseling with children and teens in Dublin, CA. I have experience helping families whose children need help navigating worries, anxiety, sadness, depression, divorce, school stress, social struggles, bullying, self-esteem and the many other issues that can lead your once happy, joyful child to struggling to get through a day without shutting down, acting out, or falling apart. I will work with you to develop a plan, strategize, and teach your kid the skills they need to navigate their lives.
Seeing children and teens get solid on who they are, live out their values, access the strong person they are deep down, and learn how to navigate relationships in healthy ways is the favorite part of my job. Observing how it impacts your entire family when there is less stress, more togetherness, peace, and things flow better at home- I truly LOVE my job!
I know how hard it is to figure out who you can trust to help your child or teen and where to start. Feel free to call me for a free 15-minute phone consultation where we can talk about whether counseling makes sense for your child or teen right now, and you can also get a sense of me and how I can help you.
I also have passion and specialty working with people who have physical limitations and disabilities. Navigating life when your vision, hearing, or body is impaired in some way can add extra complications. And, if you also struggle with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. you are normal, but it can feel like a LOT to manage and work through. I can help you navigate this process with more confidence, ease, and find what works for you to stay mentally healthy and happy.
Please call me at (925) 577-4732 for your free 15 minute phone consultation. I’d love to help you, your child, or your teen in Dublin, CA find what you need to enjoy life.
