A Chat with Jones & Black Counseling, LLC
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My name is Amanda Black and I have been working in mental health field for over 10 years. I am a licensed professional counselor and have CPRP, NCC, and CCDP-D certifications. I have provided effective evidence-based treatment for many children, adolescents, and adults in Bucks County.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
This business has been my dream career since I began college, pursuing a degree in psychology. It is the exact reason why I went to college and graduate school and worked in non-profit for the last 10 years. I have also wanted to provide counseling in the community at my own private practice.
What do you love most about your job?
Helping others is the most personally rewarding thing I have ever done and I could not imagine myself doing anything else. I always knew that sitting behind a computer all day was not in the cards for me. Human interaction and helping others reach their goals is what I love and is my calling.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
She said when no one else believed in her, I always found a way to encourage her to do what she thought was best. She also said that she learned to like herself and that she needs to do what makes her happy and not everyone else.
