James Davis Jr, LMHC
I have over twenty years of experience working with a diverse population including children, adolescents, and adults. I grew up in Utica and started my college career at Mohawk Valley Community College. I am Certified School Counselor and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of New York. I believes that all people have the ability to learn and grow from their connections with others and through a conscious desire to change for the better. Counseling is a journey guided by the counselor and directed by the client. My personal goal is to provide a positive supportive environment to facilitate healthy change and success in ones life.
