Dr. Fred Jones, PH.D and CATC, has opened a private practice in Burney.
Until his retirement in March, Dr. Jones had been Director of Behavioral Health for Mountain Valleys Health Centers since 2011.
Inspired by the work of Holocaust survivor and psychotherapist Viktor Frankl, Dr. Jones has focused his twenty-five years of experience in understanding and integrating the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of human nature.
Dr. Jones had the honor to study under Viktor Frankl at the Institute of Logotherapy.
“We live in a fragmented and stress-filled world and it requires intentional effort to sustain a positive attitude and live a meaningful life. I endeavor to give people the necessary tools to do that, and a private practice will enable me to focus even more intentionally on individual patients,” said Jones.
Dr. Jones is board certified by the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy and is a California Certified Addiction Specialist. He is a Califonria Licensed Psychologist and is Board Certified in psychopharmacology.
He has practiced in clinical and hospital inpatient settings and served as a Forens/Prison psychologist for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. He is trained and experienced in child, adolescent, adult and geriatric psychology.
In addition to regular in-office visits, patients can receive home visits, or obtain counseling services on the internet with Dr. Jones!

“We are also currently working to provide psychiatric services through telemedicine,” Jones reported.
Dr. Jones is located at 37104 Main Street, Suite A in Burney, California, and may be reached at 530-335-3335 for appointments.
