I am a therapist with over 4 years of experience in private practice. I work with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, morbid thinking, relationship issues, identity issues, pornography/sex addiction, compulsive behaviors, parenting problems, and career issues.
My counseling style is relational and motivational. I believe that everyone is capable of peace and healing. I believe that no one should be without hope of a better tomorrow. My approach to therapy is client-centered, combining a cognitive-behavioral therapy style with restorative therapy and mindfulness. My goal is to meet you where you are and help you achieve the goals and results you are seeking from therapy.
It takes courage to reach out for help and I applaud you for that! If it looks like I would be good fit for you, I will be here to support you along your journey.
I look forward to working with you!

I felt stuck with my healing and what direction i needed to take to feel like I was moving forward. I knew I was ready, but I needed guidance from a third party perspective to help gain clarity with my choices. James has been the catalyst as well as the safe space for all the difficult decisions I knew I needed to make in order to progress toward a happier, more peaceful life. I can’t express enough gratitude towards his therapeutic approach and expertise.
