Lisa Jamison, LCSW
Clinical Social Worker
Newness of Life Counseling Services
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies at the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1988. It was during my tenure at SUNY Binghamton where I met Eric, my beloved husband now for 29 years. We have been blessed to have two children Eric, Jr. and Sade. During our 6 year residency in Florida, I earned a Masters in Social Work from Barry University in 1994. My rich experience with children and families began in Georgia over 20 years ago. I served as a school social worker at RESA Academy, an alternative school in Griffin, Georgia. I provided individual, group and family counseling for students who were placed on a short or long term expulsion. I served on a multi-disciplinary team and facilitated the integration of students back into the mainstream school settings and/or alternative settings.
I currently serve as a school social worker for Atlanta Public Schools. I provide an array of services to students, their families and the community at large. I serve as a conduit linking school, home and the community by finding solutions to break down barriers to change. As a licensed clinical social worker, through my private practice, Newness of Life Counseling Services, LLC, I’m committed to walking with clients to unveil solutions to daily challenges they face. I’m reminded of the proverbial message in Proverbs 27: 17…Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. I find it a humble honor to serve in this capacity.
