Welcome to Family Centered Life!

HI! I’m Melissa Jones. I’m a clinical psychologist who focuses on serving children and families in a private practice setting, while also fulfilling the roles of a wife, mother, step-mother, grandmother, and business owner.

Because I have always lived a very family-centered life, I decided to expand my impact on the world beyond my personal one-on-one clients in my office. I wanted to share my clinical experience and parenting knowledge with a broader audience through this website and blog and through my parenting.

This website focuses on just that! We discuss family issues that impact all of us, such as parenting struggles, finding time for ourselves, continuing to nourish personal adult relationships, and strengthening family bonds.

Focusing on how to make the most out of what you have and enjoying every minute of the short time you have with your children at home with you is the priority!

Additionally, we discuss clinical issues that impact many families, such as parents with anxiety or depression and children with attention difficulties and behavioral problems. I see many people every day with these same issues in my clinical practice. I have also experienced many of these issues within my own family. Because of this, I understand from both the personal and professional level how these struggles impact everyone in the family.

We can all learn and use additional strategies to have a different outlook on our struggles and remind us to take care of ourselves so we can better care for our families.
