Jalecia is a licensed clinical mental health counselor associate (LCMHCA) and serves as the PHP Program Manager. She started at Bright Path as a graduate student intern and is an instrumental part of the program’s growth and development.
Jalecia attended East Carolina University for undergraduate and graduate studies; and has a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition with a concentration in science, and a master’s in clinical counseling in mental health and substance abuse.
She is passionate about expanding access to intensive and quality mental health care for adolescents. As someone who has navigated their own journey towards healing and self-acceptance, she personally knows how important it is to have a safe space during your healing journey and how limited the options are for teens. It’s her goal, as one of the psychotherapists and as the PHP program manager, to provide that for teens who are struggling as well as work towards increasing the resources that are available.
In her free time, she loves traveling and spending time watching Supernatural with her dogs!
