Online Support for Post Adoptive Healing

About Me

Hi! I'm Susan (Killeen) Jones and I specialize in helping clients heal from early childhood abandonment and loss while supporting and equipping those who love them. As a licensed therapist, I have helped both children and adults for over 20 years. I have been trained professionally, but my most valuable lessons have come through my personal journey. Truly, my greatest knowledge has come through my story as well as the numerous stories shared by the clients I have been blessed to serve. 

"The truth in you remains

as radiant as a star,

as pure as light,

as innocent as love itself."

-Robert Holden

Susan has a God given gift of connecting with children and parents, helping them navigate through hard questions, difficult behaviors related to trauma, and the thick of the trenches. Without fail, Susan walks my daughter and I through our questions calmly and with consistency, always providing little nuggets of wisdom that are invaluable.

Deanna Chapman

"After my child's traumatic experience, Susan was the first person I called. Her calmness and knowledge grounded me. With her help, I was able to navigate my emotions and care for my child in a way that could help us both heal. I absolutely recommend her services for any parent trying to better understand their child's behavior and emotions!"
