About Me

Hi,  my name is Racquel Jones.  I was born in Jamaica and came to the United States at age 5 and was raised in the Bronx, NY.    As a high school and college student, my friends would often come to me to talk about whatever problems they were having and found me to be an empathetic listener for them. 

 I'm a graduate of Hunter College in New York City with a masters degree in clinical social work.   I am a warm and compassionate  psychotherapist who provides culturally competent therapy. I strive to be nonjudgmental and to provide a safe place for my clients to explore whatever issues are troubling them.   I love the work that I do and I feel honored to help the people who chose me as their therapist.  Most of my clients come to me seeking help for anxiety, depression, trauma, managing with life transitions, relationship issues, binge eating and body dysmorphia. If any of this sounds familiar to you, please reach out, together we can work towards the change you deserve to help you lead a more fulfilling and happy life.  

In addition to traditional   in office therapy, I also offer  online therapy, through a secure website. Online therapy  allows flexibility for my clients.  By using online therapy, we can speak while you're at home, your office or anywhere which is convenient for you.   

 In addition to being a therapist, I love writing, reading, cooking and listening to music especially Prince, Beyonce , Lizzo and Rihanna and dancing.  I look forward to helping you

   "Cause I'm my own soulmate
I know how to love me
I know that I'm always gonna hold me down
Yeah, I'm my own soulmate
No, I'm never lonely
I know I'm a queen, but I don't need no crown "-Lizzo
