Our Story

API Associates, Inc. was founded in 1988
by James H. Williams. Ph.D.

Dr. Williams, an educational psychologist, observed the
academic disparities in underprivileged youth and believed
he could make a change in his community.  He developed a nationally acclaimed Summer Enrichment Program for Gifted and Talented children, which provided psychoeducational evaluations, tutoring, and mentoring services to assist individuals in reaching their full potentials. Dr.Williams' inner tenacity about creating a change in the life of others was greatly visible. The incessant search for giving birth to his vision led him to the incorporation of emotional health services in order to fulfill the need of the community.  Dr. Williams showed his enthusiasm
of helping others by devoting the majority of his time to API Associates, Inc. His legacy continues to revolutionize the life
of people ​by helping one family at a time.
