Jami Eaton LCSW is a native Montanan who completed her Master of Social Work from Walla Walla University in Billings, Montana to serve youth and families. Jami also holds a Bachelor’s in Education from Rocky Mountain College. Most recently, Jami has served youth while working with the Rimrock Foundation, Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch, and Western Montana Mental Health Center in Bozeman.
Jami is proud to be joining Providence Mental Health which uses a Family-Systems approach and a Collaborative Treatment Team model. This model helps families recognize when one or more family members are struggling and, as a result, the whole family’s functioning is being affected. She works from a strengths-based perspective, celebrating what the person and family members already do well, then incorporates strategies to help navigate daily stressors using evidenced-based therapy practice. This helps reduce struggling and assists clients to manage life difficulties and symptoms including learning disabilities, ADHD, depression, anxiety, traumatic occurrences, and PTSD.
Jami’s extensive work in schools has led her to become mission based with providing support and services to all teachers and administrators working with Gallatin Valley youth, to strengthen their resiliency as well as offer tools and strategies to manage their jobs effectively. Jami has witnessed the secondary trauma these professionals experience and recognizes the need for support and personal rejuvenation. Parents and families also experience complex life challenges while trying to navigate their own lives and help their child that is struggling or in pain at the same time.
Jami will offer a nurturing environment, providing much-needed support for Gallatin Valley youth, couples, families, and the professionals that work closely with them.
Jami is a mother of three who spends her free time experiencing the outdoors hiking, skiing, and biking. She also loves spending weekends involved in the culture and community of Gallatin County.
