BLAKE JONES, PhD., LCSW

Blake Pic.jpg

 

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 1998, and I love to help my clients and their families in becoming healthier and more fulfilled.  I treat older teens, adults, couples and families, and my areas of specialty include working with anxiety and depression, couples counseling, work-related issues, helping college students and their families, and counseling first responders (i.e., police officers, firefighter, and dispatchers).

I am a faculty member at the University of Kentucky College of Social Work where I teach clinical courses in the graduate program.  I also do research on suicide prevention, and I host a monthly podcast called “Social Work Conversations”:https://socialwork.uky.edu/podcast/ My education includes a B.A. from Berea College, and a MSW and Ph.D. from the University of Kentucky.

My “style” of counseling is very practical.  As a social worker, I believe that everyone has strengths and that my job is to help clients move forward in their lives.  I provide lots of tools (i.e., book recommendations, apps, web sites) and check in frequently with my clients about progress made toward their goals.  My clinical orientation tends to fall into the realms of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness practices, and person-centered therapy.

I accept most insurances and I have a per hour private pay rate. I have been married to my wife—an occupational therapist—since 1995, and we have two older teenage sons. For self-care, I run (slowly), play racquetball, and I am a multi-instrumentalist musician.
