Prairie View-Marion County Welcomes Norris To Clinical Staff

April 30, 2021

NEWTON, Kan. (April 30, 2021) – Prairie View welcomes Jamie Norris, a licensed master social worker, to its Marion County office, located at 508 S. Ash, Hillsboro. She provides therapy services to children ages 0 to 12.

Her passion for working with families and children led her to pursue a career in mental and behavioral health care, and a personal experience attracted her to give back to the communities in which she grew up, including Marion.

“Prairie View was there for my family when we needed help,” says Norris. “I’ve always appreciated the compassion and empathy we received.”

She believes everyone, including children, has the ability to meet their full potential. When challenges arise and extra support and guidance is needed to overcome barriers related to mental health, Norris says she wants to help people feel confident and safe when seeking out mental health services.

Helping children handle their “big feelings” is crucial, she says, because it affects the academic, developmental and social areas of their lives.

“Understanding and processing feelings and past trauma allows them to feel powerful and successful,” says Norris.

Norris earned a bachelor’s degree in Family Studies and Human Services from Kansas State University and a master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Kansas.
