Harley Jones, Clinical Intern
Harley Jones is a clinical intern from The College of William and Mary who is completing both her practicum and internship at Calming Wind Counseling. After many years of living in New York, she is now enjoying rediscovering her hometown of Richmond. Harley comes from a background of working in special education allowing her therapeutic approach to be strengths-based and person-centered while being politically informed and keeping in mind the cultural context of her clients. Harley utilizes acceptance and commitment therapy in order to help her clients develop effective coping strategies for every day life.
Harley enjoys working with young adults and states, "I believe that therapy can include laughter and joy, even as we address challenging issues. I see therapy as a partnership between two+ people, each with their own knowledge and skills. Taking care of our mental health can and should be something that we do when we're feeling good; it helps us find more ease when challenges arise later on. In other words, we don't just start brushing our teeth when we have a cavity!" Harley believes that there is "no one size fits all" approach to therapy, and enjoys communicating with clients about approaches that may best fit their needs.
Angela DeBoard, Resident in Counseling

Angela utilizes Trauma Focused Therapy including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Angela works hard at meeting her clients where they are at, allowing them to set the pace of the therapy. Angela expresses that is important to remember, "Acknowledging that you need help is the first step on the road to healing."
