Ratings for Dr. Annita B. Jones
I went through the worst period of my life with Dr. Jones at my side. Looking back (I hope) at her gentle, but practiced, hand at guiding me through that period, I would not have gotten through as unscathed if she had not been there beside me. She was there for me as often and at times of day I can imagine of no other, and still is as I now struggle to deal with the things that landed me in that place. I can't imagine a person or instance where she would lead someone astray for, from the insider's view of another mental health professional, she's as about as good as they come.
I consulted years ago with Dr. Jones. I felt I was bravely going forward with information which could have resulted in criminal investigations and charges. She discouraged this approach. Years later I am finally divorced after having been devastated for trusting her to be a legal professional. This means I found her to be a woman who makes and doesn't treat trauma. She is aware this is my opinion about the choices she made, which I have questioned quite seriously in terms of HIPPA ethics and legality. I find she made a recommendation she should have understood would cause a violent mental reaction from my now ex-husband.
Annita's ability to maintain a level of calm, strength and deep understanding throughout our sessions has saved my life. I am a patient with bi-polar disorder, OCD, and other issues. I often make impulsive and reckless decisions and then dissect the same mistakes/behaviors/actions I make over and over with Annita and each time she listens and does not judge or condescend. If I take something seriously - however minor it actually is - Annita takes it seriously too. She has been on call at every hour, even on vacation for urgent needs. I felt like I would never be able to change until I started to work with her - it is miraculous to realize not only that I can, but that I feel like actual work is being accomplished in each of our sessions.

I have seen Annita for many years. She is a very caring, professional and dedicated therapist. She helped me a great deal when I was in the ER and with my disability papers. She remembers things that I have told her in the past and I know she is paying attention to what I'm saying. She's AWESOME!
Dr. Jones was invaluable in helping me process my traumatic memories and other life experiences. She played a primary role in my gaining stable footing after a lifetime of mental health issues. Anyone would be better off having her in their corner.
I have had Dr Annita Jones for many years and she has always been easy to talk to and very professional. She has helped me move forward in my therapy to a place that is much more functional and I am so grateful to have had her guidance. The most recent stressful life events would not have been as easy to manage if I had not had the kind of care received from Dr Jones.
