Hi, my name is Tyisha Jones! I am a proud native Washingtonian and a Clinical Mental Health graduate student at Trinity Washington University. Since joining Trinity’s Clinical Mental Health Graduate Program, my research has involved refocusing the conversation around “reparations” and “resiliency” and what it looks like to repair marginalized and intergenerational communities impacted by enslavement, prison industrialized policies, and racist/oppressive-induced systems. I enjoy working with youth and families and have been graced with several professional opportunities to do so in the Washington, DC area. I also serve as a 200-hour yoga teacher certified in the Trauma Conscious Yoga Method. In this realm, I merge expressive arts with yoga, a combination I love teaching to children and use for self-care.
