Greetings, Habari Gani, and Whats Up!
I am Brandon Jones, I am a Husband, I am a Father, I am a Psychotherapist and founder of Jegna Institute.
I come from an down-to-earth perspective in the therapeutic realm. Specializations in male development, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Historical and Intergenerational trauma, domestic violence, adolescents, healthy relationships. Born and raised in Saint Paul, Minnesota I have survived living in a home of domestic violence and various other forms of trauma. Now, I hold a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Minnesota, a Masters in Psychology from Metropolitan State University, and a Masters in Psychotherapy from Adler Graduate School. My focus is on healing the Black community, by addressing behavioral patterns and mental health conditions. My ultimate objective is to strengthen, mobilize and liberate people classified as Black. The area that I will like to focus on most is strengthening the Black family by addressing the mental health of Black males. I believe Black males have often been overlooked when it comes to addressing their mental health issues. There is a lot of pain that Black males face mental and emotionally that is often left untreated. When Black males suffer, everybody in the family and community suffers tenfold. Black males pass their pain (trauma) to their children and spouses. This pain (trauma) transcends throughout generations.
