My name is Jamal Jones. I love being a husband, father, leader, and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. My practice is my passion because I get to make the world a better place by investing in individuals, couples, and families. As a mental health provider, I have worked for churches, the government, government contracted agencies, hospital outpatient, and correctional settings within the San Joaquin Valley. I help couples who are married and unhappy change their attitudes and revolutionize their relationship by being value and strength based in creating a shared vision of their future together!
Life is a team sport. Your spouse is the Most Valuable Player (MVP) on YOUR team, the most sacred of all of your human relationships and other life priorities. Yes, I said it! Your spouse is more important than your kids, parents, friends, career, recreational activities, hobbies, and anything else you can think of. You will find your marriage to be more fulfilling when you stop being selfish, and sacrificially put the needs of your MVP before you own.
My approach to couples counseling is value based within a cognitive behavioral framework. In couples counseling you will be invited to take a personal inventory, examine, and evaluate thinking patterns and core beliefs you have that are contributing to your relationship problems. As much as you care about your spouse, you can’t change them! That's a bummer, right? I know, but there is hope in the fact that YOU can change! YAY! You can make subtle changes in your thinking patterns, belief system, and behavior that will help your spouse become a better version of themselves. In most cases, the entire team becomes better when the MVP is provided the opportunity to maximize their potential, utilize all of their gifts and abilities, have freedom to take risks and make mistakes. They feel secure, and are confident in knowing they are cared for, valued and cherished by you independent of their performance.
We will collaborate with one another to create an environment where you and your spouse feel spiritually, emotionally, physically, psychological and relationally safe to be your authentic selves. This will allow for communication to occur that is non-threatening, humble, honest, assertive, and transparent. We will identify the pain points of your relationship, develop a vision based on your strengths and shared values, and a practical game plan to outline how you can lovingly, sacrificially, and respectfully make necessary changes based your shared hopes and dreams!

I’m so grateful for Jamal! His spiritual maturity, professional council, and sound advice is very encouraging on my path of healing!
Jamal is very perceptive, intelligent and and is a very effective counselor!! My husband and I are already seeing major improvements in our marriage, after only a few sessions. He has taught us coping skills, fair fighting rules, and how to support and understand each other better. We will be continuing our sessions with Jamal and I am ever so grateful to have found him!!!!
Jamal has years of wisdom in understanding the human psychology. I appreciate his no nonsense approach and also the principals he brings using a moral compass. I highly recommend him for any struggling marriage or anyone struggling with understanding addiction and relationship conflicts.
