About Donica

Donica graduated with Honors with a BA Majoring in Psychology with a Minor in Child Development from the University of Texas at Austin in 1998. After completing her Masters in Psychology at Houston Baptist University where she was inducted into Psi Chi an Honor Society for Psychology Honors Students, she began and completed her LPC Internship and LSOTP training at GHPI under Dr. Karen Gollaher.

Throughout her career and prior to starting her own practice in 2005, Donica Jones worked in various roles associated with sexual issues or working toward ending violence as a volunteer, intern, and staff including:  the Houston Area Women's Center Rape Crisis Program, The Office of the Attorney General Sexual Assault Services and Crime Prevention Unit, Jester IV Psychiatric Prison, Greater Houston Psychological Institute. During 2006 and 2007 she was mentored by Dr. Gisela DeDiminico and completed Level I and II Training of Sandtray-Worldplay utilizing images and sand as a medium to give voice to clients issues in a non-threatening manner. In 2009, She became a Certified Real Colors Facilitator and a Certified Cognitive facilitator utilizing the Crossroads curriculum approved by the national AAPPA. 

Donica served on the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA) Board of Director during the 2003-2005 and worked with the National Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCASA) on the National level during 2004. She served on multiple PTO Boards in the community over the past fifteen years.  Donica Jones was accepted as a Clinical member of ATSA Nationally in 2005 and served on the Texas ATSA Board from 2009-2011. She served on the Board of Directors with the Katy Exchange Club and their focus on ending infant death through a project to educate and prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome from 2005-2007. From 2010 through 2012 more emphasis was given to donating to local and national charities and donating clinical services through Give an Hour to military families who have sacrificed for our country.  In 2012, we began our partnership offering pro bono services with Mental Health American Houston Chapter. Please see our Community page or Current Fundraiser page to find ways to contribute to your community.

In 2010 Donica Jones came to realize the importance of living life to the fullest and how important the concept of wellness was and so a new passion was born. Ms. Jones has the absolute pleasure to help clients on their journey to find a healthier more well balanced lifestyle that allows them to live vibrantly today! Donica trained under Dr. Michelle May and completed the Am I Hungry? Facilitator Training in 2010.  In 2012 Donica completed her Certified Yoga Training under Sara Turk and completed classes/workshops from Michael Ganon, Judith Lasiter, and Robert Boustwany.  In 2012, Donica completed the 3 Day Integrative Medicine Conference at MD Anderson Cancer Center to utilize Therapeutic Yoga with Cancer Patients. In June Donica received the Registered Yoga teacher credential through Yoga Alliance. Ms. Jones completed the Well coaches 14 week Core Training Program and is currently working toward certification as a Wellness Coach.

Today, Ms. Jones utilizes Motivation Interviewing (MI) along with Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and solution Focused therapy and accountability to form an eclectic style suited to each individual client.  After years of clinical experience she has come to value the innate potential each client has to gain insight and make the commitment to change their life when they are both ready and willing.  She uses humor and accountability to provide a genuine platform for clients to reveal themselves without fear of judgments. She works with multiple issues ranging from mild 3-6 sessions from some juveniles and adults to more intensive therapy skills working with complicated grief, caregiver issues, mood management, sexual issues, and wellness issues impacting health through wellness counseling and coaching and therapeutic yoga private consultations.

I have the pleasure to help others on their educational journey through graduate practicum, internship, and supervising fully licensed staff within the practice.  We have a great team of individuals who will treat you with respect and maintain your confidentiality. 

In 2005, I opened a private practice and today we offer two office locations and have a combined staff to address most issues.  For those issues we do not feel we specialize in we refer out to appropriate mental health referrals.  We look forward to assisting you on your journey to a healthier more balance lifestyle!
