Hi, I'm James Greenwald, a licensed professional counselor located in Dallas. I have over 5 years of experience as a counselor and mental health clinician, with a wide and diverse variety of therapeutic experience working with clients from every background imaginable. My counseling degree came from Dallas Theological Seminary (2012), and I've seen clients in settings including private practice, hospitals, schools, crisis scenarios, and even prison systems. I utilize cutting edge techniques and treatment methods from dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), narrative therapy, family systems, and acceptance and commitment therapy. I’m skilled at wading into real life pain and struggles including conflict patterns, depression, anxiety, anger and irritability, bereavement, self-doubt, directionlessness and indecision, fear and insecurity, and suicidal thinking. I work with individuals and couples who are struggling and need support, hope, and a helping hand in becoming self-aware.
Counseling isn’t a promise of fixing life’s problems, but it is a place to gain skills and intuition to face what the world throws at you with confidence. Therapy provides a safe space for people to confront life and work toward becoming the best, thriving versions of themselves. I invite you to come explore vulnerability and self-acceptance with me - let's figure out how to help you become the best version of yourself together.

James has been my therapist for about a year. He is caring, validating and his background in theology gives him a perspective that I need. I am grateful for him.
