I am a licensed professional counselor in Tennessee with over 7 years of experience working with couples and individuals. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, anger issues, and addiction. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I am very goal focused and action oriented. My approach combines solution-focused therapy with narrative therapy.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. I am excited to be a resource to help equip you to reach your goals.
I look forward to working with you!

Even with my short time with Eric, and the little experience I have with therapy, I am confident that he is well trained and knowledgable in his field. I feel very welcomed and secure in our sessions and find our discussions already helpful and pertaining to my life. Would recommend Eric to any of my friends looking for therapy, especially if they are new or as inexperienced as I was.
Written on Feb 24, 2022 after therapy with James (Eric) for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues
