Dr. Melanie English

  Life is already a full time job.  Getting divorced can only add to your emotional, psychological and financial stresses. Among all this stress are your children, the most important thing in your life, who will be experiencing the stress and changes from divorce as well.  Finalizing your parenting plan lets both parents and children know when they will be together.  Ultimately, this helps to create new roles and lifestyles which will help everyone move forward in a healthy fashion.

Dr. Melanie English is a highly experienced parenting evaluator, Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) and licensed clinical psychologist who has worked with hundreds of families, thousands of children and has completed a total of approximately 900 family assessment reports and parenting evaluations.
