Jamesa currently works two days a week at our sister program through where she works one day in the school setting and out day in a community outpatient setting.

I grew up in the area and although I have since moved away, I thought my life would be 'full circle' and meaningful to go back to my beginning and at least deposit what I've learned and experienced over the years. Jamesa enjoys working with young, middle age, and elderly adults, and her astute clinical presence makes her an asset to all of her patients.
