James volunteered at a school that helped teach life skills and provided tutoring to children, these children came to school looking for stability and safety. During his time at this school and taking a psychology class at UVU he developed a deeper passion to help people find peace and cope with their trying experiences. He decided he wanted to look more into providing services in this field. This is when James found Quality Youth Services and has been working with this agency since 2017. James is currently in the Behavioral Social Work Program at Utah Valley University and working at a treatment coordinator in the Pleasant Grove office.
James enjoys watching Sesame Street and Star Wars with his son. He loves going to Real Salt Lake games with his wife and son any chance they get. During his free time, he loves playing video games with his wife and friends.
As a treatment coordinator, James works with a treatment team that consists of the youth, caseworker, therapist, guardians of the youth, proctor parent(s) and mentors/trackers. James's objective is to make sure that he is coordinating services for the youth. James works closely with the team to make sure appropriate goals are being set to help the youth have the tools necessary to be successful. A treatment coordinator will also provide academic support, whether that’s school check-ins or helping with school assignments and attending school meetings. We also schedule and transport clients to doctor and dental appointments, coordinate therapy and clinical services, and then helping transport clients to those meetings. They also do a Together Facing the Challenge (TFTC) once a week. This meeting is used to help talk about what is successful in the proctor home and how we as a team can help support proctor parents and clients correct problematic behaviors in the home.
