  • Lana Jones

    My name is Lana Jones, and my journey has been driven by an interest in neuroscience, particularly how it intertwines with the tapestry of human psychology. I hold a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Miami. Currently, I am pursuing a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Florida Atlantic University. My academic pursuits have deepened my understanding of the brain’s influence on our emotional well-being. I am honored to serve as a counseling intern at Helping Moon and bring my scientific expertise and a caring, empathetic, holistic approach to those seeking support and guidance.

    In my quest to understand the intricacies of the mind, I am reminded of the profound words of Albert Einstein, who once said, “The mind that opens to a new idea never returns to its original size.” This sentiment encapsulates my approach to both neuroscience and counseling, recognizing the transformative potential that understanding the brain holds for mental well-being. My focus lies in addressing mental health concerns by exploring the delicate interplay of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors with my clients. My commitment is to create a safe and nurturing space, acknowledging the significant challenges individuals face because, let’s face it, life is tough. And there is no correct answer or fix to the human condition. However, by exploring an individual’s strengths and resilience and introducing some understanding and compassion for individual challenges, one can learn to cope and improve one’s quality of life.

    Everyone’s journey to emotional wellness is unique, just like our brains, which are distinctly molded by personal experiences. Together, we can navigate the interconnectedness of thoughts and feelings, embarking on a partnership towards mental well-being, celebrating the inherent strength of asking for help, and courageously striving for emotional growth. You can be the absolute best version of yourself. You don’t have to struggle in silence. In the words of John Green, “There is hope, even when your brain is telling you there isn’t.” Let me help you retrain your brain. Your happiness is worth it.
