Counseling Group Miami

Kristin Jones, LMHC

Helping people to live more balanced and healthy lives is my passion.

I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and proud to be the director of the Dialectical Behavioral Therapy program at The Counseling Group, in Miami, Florida. Our program consists of individual DBT therapy, skills training and coaching. We offer standard outpatient DBT and also intensive treatment individualized to the needs of the client.  Our program treats a multitude of disorders and issues including borderline personality disorder, eating disorders, substance abuse disorders, emotion and mood dysregulation, interpersonal dysregulation, and impulsivity issues. I personally specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, borderline personality disorders, and anxiety disorders.

Mind/Body development is another one of my specialties. I have been teaching yoga and meditation for 12 years. Yoga and meditation are about learning to control modifications of the mind while becoming more integrated in mind, body, and soul. When appropriate or requested by clients, I utilize yoga postures and meditation during sessions for issues such as life stress, anxiety, body image issues, improving attention span and concentration, development of greater mind and body awareness and balance, and to use as a healthy coping mechanism to deal with difficult emotions. I have over 1000 hours of training and have studied yoga in Mysore, India.
