Therapist in Chesapeake, Virginia, Nerissa Jones, LPC

Nerissa Jones, LPC

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I work predominantly with adults who suffer with chronic and persistent mental health issues such as Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and other major mood, psychotic and delusion disorders. I also address anxiety disorders and the daily functional problems that often accompany these long-term debilitating disorders like low self-esteem, low self-efficacy, anhedonia, limited emotional responses, low motivation, negative cognitions, poor social skills, and difficulty with completing simple life tasks. I also assist with psychoeducation and support for families caring for a loved one who is suffering with long-term mental health issues. Experiencing a serious mental illness is traumatic for both the individual, their families, and loved ones. I am here to help you navigate this journey and help families cope in the healthiest ways possible. I also have a focus on the unique experience of siblings of individuals suffer with a serious mental illness because I am living this experience too! I wholeheartedly believe in developing treatment plans that are person-centered and driven by the desires and needs of the client.

I am passionate about helping individuals and their loved ones rebuild or create the quality of life they desire that is often severely and negatively impacted by suffering with a mental illness or caring for a loved one suffering with long-term chronic mental illness. I am also a passionate advocate of destigmatizing mental illness and actively linking individuals and families to resources and services that are needed and helpful to them.

I would love to get to know you and what’s important to you, where you’ve been in your life, and help you discover where you want to be.
