Sometimes when you lose your way, you find yourself

My name is Jesse James and my new therapist onboard is Amanda Gillam. We both have been in behavioral health since 2004/2005. I have an Undergraduate in Human Development, and a Masters in Organizational Management and Leadership. I'm a certified Life Coach, Relationship Coach and I'm also a military Veteran who served from 1992 to 2000 in the United States Navy. Amanda is a certified professional counselor as well as a Substance Use Disorder Professional. Amanda went to Spokane Valley and received her Associates in Human Development. Our personal and professional background have helped us guide clients to being able to move forward in life no matter what the obstacles might be. We enjoy working with clients that want and know they deserve a better life all the while learning that choices have consequences. Our passion is our profession and we've helped many see what they have yet to see when it comes to living in the now and facing everyday challenges that life has to throw at you.

“Jesse has been a Godsend! After one conversation we felt hopeful and relieved! Jesse guided our son through his recovery and brought him back from an unrecognizable stranger to the young man we’ve always known and adored. We recommend Jesse with all our heart!”
