Jamieka Harris, LCSW

I have compassion, empathy and positive regard for everyone I encounter. I became a therapist because I know there is healing needed for many that suffer from mental health and addiction problems. I have worked in residential treatment centers for over 3 years. I had the opportunity to serve clients with varying diagnosis.

I became affiliated with The Oaks at La Paloma and its integrated model of treatment for co-occurring disorders as a primary therapist in January 2017. After facilitating group therapy at a crisis center and conducting individual and family sessions in an outpatient setting, I sought out a dual diagnosis treatment facility where I would be able to maximize my skills and provide optimum service to clients. I have also earned a Specialist in Administration and Leadership from Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi. This was while I was working as a Special education teacher and later promoted to Director of Special Services. Prior to moving to Mississippi, I taught special education students in North Carolina after receiving a Master’s in Social Work from East Carolina University as well as a Bachelor’s in Sociology with a Concentration in Social Welfare from Winston Salem State University.

I am committed to helping those who need motivation and support while striving for excellence. My primary responsibility as a therapist is to provide individual, family and group therapy sessions. I utilize a variety of theories and models during therapy that include motivational interviewing, psychotherapy, dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive theory and I am newly trained in EMDR.

In my downtime, I embrace motherhood, spend time with family and friends, travel, read and attend church.   Mrs. Harris sees children, teens and adults.   Ms. Harris is now seeing Children five and above.

Dawn Begner, PMNHP-BC

Dawn Begner PMHNP-BC

I am a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner providing assessment, support, and medication management for adults and children 5 and up across the spectrum of mental health needs.

I've been fortunate to get nursing experience in a variety of areas but when I started psychiatric nursing I found my home. I’ve worked in inpatient, outpatient, and home care settings. I went on to get my Master’s in Nursing from the University of Alabama in order to treat patients more fully.

Mental health is equally as important as physical health, and I believe the best mental health care takes emotional, social, physical, and spiritual well-being into consideration. I am committed to giving all patients the best care without exception or judgement. I believe patient and provider are partners in care.

Personally, I love to read, garden, travel (I love an adventure!), and paint. My favorite times usually include a driveway full of cars and house filled with laughter.
