James Cordiano

LMHC

About me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Florida. My professional specialty has primarily been centered on addressing chronic anxiety, depression, substance use, familial dysfunction, and family of origin issues. As many situations present in client's lives are manifestations of their upbringing, acknowledging these issues early in the clinical relationship can assist with quickly assessing Narratives that support maladaptive beliefs. Often (but not always) unwanted behaviors and coping strategies are created early in the lifespan; I quickly help identify maladaptive reactions to daily stressors that are centered in potentially dysfunctional childhood relationships. I assist my clients utilizing a Solution Focused, Strengths based perspective which creates an atmosphere of understanding and identification during sessions. My work with my clients has assisted many people realize their true potential and increase their ability to successfully manifest desired outcomes relating to symptom reduction, motivational engagement increases, and greater productivity in their lives. I have experience using Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, other Cognitive Behavioral Therapies, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and increasing Spiritual Fulfillment through Mindfulness Practices.

I have been seeing James for over a year now and I value our relationship and the help he has given me. I really appreciate the judgement free zone of our sessions and how he helps me focus on solutions and not guilt.

I’ve never had a male therapist and I used to be very skeptical because I feared he wouldn’t be able to understand me well but I was wrong. He’s been great and an amazing supporter for me

James is very thoughtful and puts a lot of effort into our sessions. He re reads notes before our sessions so we can continue to work on things, he makes sure I am scheduled out so we don't miss a session and he writes a weekly message with a quote or question to make us think. He responds quickly and lets me know every week his availability and when to expect him not to answer. In just two sessions he has helped me see things in a different perspective and I am very grateful.

James does such a wonderful job at finding and pointing out things I can’t see in myself. He’s both direct and compassionate in his approach, and above all else, there is a great sense of human connection. James is super personable, and I heavily appreciate the laughter we can share in our sessions. I’ve noticed hinges shifts in myself since I’ve been working with James and I am so beyond grateful.

James is helpful and listens. He uses his training and experience to provide customized therapy that works for my individual needs. I know I need a stern and authoritative figure to help me. I communicated this and he adapted his technique to crate an environment that will hopefully be successful for me and my needs.

James listens to understand. He is a real person and shares his personality in our sessions. This makes me feel so much more comfortable and open. In just a few weeks he has made a major impact on my quality of life. I would recommend James to anyone!

Written on Aug 30, 2021 after therapy with James for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

I didn’t want to do therapy but I knew after my fathers passing that I needed tools and guidance that I did not have. Jim has provided that and so much more during our sessions and chats and I can’t be more thankful. Even when I try to get out of answering a question I am uncomfortable answering Jim finds a way of easing the pressure and getting me to answer. I’m appreciative of everything he has done!!

Jim is a terrific counselor. He is thoughtful and curious. He asks questions without judgment and has a killer memory. He pushes me outside of my comfort zone without making me enter my danger zone. Very lucky I got paired with him.

I’ve turned down the opportunity to write a review previously because I wanted to get to know him. Over time I’ve came to conclusion he’s both a great counselor and just a cool person in general. His approach is very laid back which made me comfortable In sharing things about myself. He has a sense of humor which I appreciated, but also knew when to keep serious. He always helped come to solutions or figure out a better way of thinking about things. James is a wonderful counselor and I’m thankful for my time with him.

So far, in the short time I 've had to work with Jim, he's been great. It could be that we come from the same part of the US but I feel like I'm understood. I also like Jim's style of therapy.

James has BY FAR been the best therapist I have ever had. He made me feel like I wasn’t someone who was “broken and needed to be fixed” which was a really great feeling. Talking with him was easy and I was able to be myself. I cannot recommend him enough.

James was great to work with. He was very open, and listened to all the different things I had going on when I first started. With his help I was able to see things from a different perspective. He also helped come up with some routines to help me get better sleep. It made a world of difference. I highly recommend James!
