Abundant Life Academy recently announced the addition of a contracted licensed clinical social worker, Janice Eames, to its therapeutic team.

Janice Eames, LCSW, obtained her master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Walla Walla University in Washington with an emphasis on substance abuse, trauma, and mental/behavioral health. Upon graduation, she relocated to the St George area.

Ms. Eames began her professional career working with teenagers at a local adolescent residential treatment center, excelling in providing the students on her caseload with comprehensive therapy services. Ms. Eames eventually established a Christian-based private practice in St. George.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to work once again with teenagers and their families by partnering with Abundant Life Academy, ” says Eames. “I view it as an honor and privilege to come alongside families during this difficult time.”

“ALA’s therapeutic services are intended to provide the highest level of quality care and support available in the therapeutic boarding school industry,” says Marcus Hamaker, Director of Operations. “We believe Ms. Eames’ qualifications and experience will be of great service to the students.”

Abundant Life Academy takes a comprehensive approach to its therapeutic program, incorporating both group and individual counseling options based on the unique needs of each teen.

“I incorporate solid Biblical truths and standards with sound, proven therapy models,” says Ms. Eames. “As a mother of three children, two who are still teens, I understand the joys, challenges, and pressures that today’s parents face.”

Abundant Life Academy strives to provide a faith-based, restorative solution for teens struggling with anger, rebellion, depression, and addiction. For more information on Abundant Life Academy, call Marcus Hamaker, Director of Operations, at 435.772.5903, or visit
