Brandy Jones-Thomas, MA, LMFT #82210

Executive Director

As founder and CEO of Affinity Community Counseling, we have worked to establish a therapeutic space that allows growth and tools to learn the natural healing of life. It is important to us that you feel welcomed and supported on your journey to gaining insight and motivation to understand what you need to reach your goals.

We offer a relatable, mindful and direct approach that most people report as non-judgmental and open in our therapeutic relationship. I strongly believe in individual therapy services and clients often report a new self-awareness while on the therapeutic journey together.

I support diversity in all forms which includes the LGBTQ community and any marginalized population. I specialize in working with parents, couples, individuals, adolescents and children ages 2 to 5 years old. 

I have worked with various cultures, and ethic backgrounds. I offer support for work stress, blended family issues, parenting, school adjustments, history of trauma/abuse, coping skills, relationship counseling, anxiety issues and depression.

I have over 14 years experience in mental wellness and counseling. I've worked as a social worker for foster youth and I spent the last 8 years providing therapy and specialized mental health services in the commuinty to at risk families, children and adolescents. 

We offer summer groups/classes and programs the support children and families of color
