Greetings, Habari Gani, and Whats Up!
Brandon Jones: Psychotherapist, Podcaster, Writer, Consultant and Founder of Jegna Institute.
I brings a down-to-earth and compassionate attitude to Mental Health. As a Psychotherapist, Professor, Podcaster, and Writer. I have written a Column (entitled Jegna) for the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder since 2012. Some of my specializations are in personal development, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Historical and Intergenerational trauma, Social/Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Leadership, and Child Development. Born and raised in Saint Paul, Minnesota, I have survived living in a home of domestic violence and various other forms of trauma. I hold a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Minnesota, a Master’s in Community Psychology from Metropolitan State University, and a Master’s in Psychotherapy (MFT) from Adler Graduate School. I am also a 2013 Bush Foundation Leadership Fellow. I live by the motto of “If you can manage your emotions, you can manage your situation.”
“I wake up in the morning to help those who need help the most, by attempting to solve problems and not creating any.” -Brandon Jones
