Brandon Jones is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Northborough, MA who specializes in trauma, relationships, anxiety, and challenges related to culture, race, and gender. While he works with adults across the lifespan, a majority of his clients are in their late adolescence or are young adults. Many of his clients are navigating school challenges, relationship difficulty, or have a history of trauma, including problems related to sexual violence, attachment, and/or grief.
Brandon’s approach is grounded in trauma-informed care, including Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), an evidence-based treatment for children, adolescents, and young adults impacted by trauma. He helps his clients develop healthy coping strategies and learn how to change their thought patterns. His sessions are client-led, and he offers a supportive environment where individuals can work through overwhelming emotions and gain a better understanding of how their experience(s) have shaped their relationships and worldview.
Brandon believes that everyone has the ability to heal and succeed. He has worked in a wide variety of settings, including community agencies, families' homes, residential placements, and crisis programs. He received his MA from Lesley University and looks forward to meeting you.
