I am Nasseam James, RCSWI.
I have earned my Masters of Social Work from Florida State University and have held executive leadership positions within the Department of Health since 2012.
I have multidisciplinary experience in several areas including public health, hospice support and bereavement, chronic disease management, and child health and welfare. I am especially skilled in designing and supporting programs for mothers and infants, working with LGBTQ+ young people, and providing supportive services for individuals living with HIV and AIDS. We must believe that reducing adverse childhood experiences and trauma in the community will improve the overall physical and mental health of the people within those communities. One must have passion and knowledge about health and wellness and taking care of the inner self, in order to live a purposeful life. I am an advocate for social justice and equity in all spaces.
My holistic approach with individuals encourages clients to meditate to support the clinical healing process. I evaluate individuals within the context of their environment and provide encouragement as well as practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. Support and patience can assist with healing from trauma, building self-worth, improving communication in relationships and goal attainment. I utilize a multidimensional approach to therapy, exploring each individual's biological, psychological, social and spiritual needs (support to those seeking counseling based on Christian biblical teachings is available upon request).
With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help build on their strengths and attain authentic growth and recovery. Be sure to contact Enriched Life Counseling today to meet with me!
