Vanessa James

Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate

Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker associate with over 12 years of clinical experience with different populations including children, youth, adults and families. Previously I have worked with at-risk youth in the school system and enrolled in independent living programs, homeless, domestic violence/sexual assault survivors, cognitively challenged individuals and people who have been discriminated against. I
work with an eclectic approach, including person-centered, solution focused and strength based modalities.

I feel that we all deserve another chance to get our life in order on a healthier note, sometimes we need more than 2 or 3. Everyone needs someone to talk to and who will listen. I’m here for you to lend an ear and give my heart to work hard to help you through your obstacles and struggles. I am the person who will show empathy, kindness and trustworthiness. I look forward to meeting you!
