I am licensed in Arkansas with 30 years of professional work experience. I have spent most of my career in university counseling centers, but for the last few years have added providing consultation and therapy to nursing staff at a local hospital, providing therapy to hospital staff through their EAP, and most recently through Better Help.
I especially help clients with depression and anxiety (from irrational beliefs and over-thinking), relationship issues, coping with grief and loss, religious conflict, nightmares and dream interpretation, anger management, & low self-esteem.
I believe that the best therapy comes from collaborating together, where I listen and give feedback, and where I provide a place where people can feel safe and be absolutely honest.
I am personable, very chill, and do not push people. I have a high rate of success and I love what I do.
I check messages throughout the day, so I am particularly good at getting back to people in a very short amount of time.
Reach out to me and I we’ll take a first step and see how it goes.

Dr. Guinee has been there for me through a lot of hard issues. Definitely wouldn’t be in the headspace I’m in, if it wasn’t for him. Thank you. And thank you for always cracking jokes here and there.

Jim is the sweetest therapist. He is focused on solving your issue while also being very relaxed and always making you feel comfortable. I would absolutely recommend him for any type of personality. I'm already feeling stronger and feel very lucky to have him.

In 3 sessions he has superseded my expectations! He is attentive and patient. I have had therapists before and already been able to open up more than I thought I would be able too. As a therapist myself, I have a hard time finding someone that I can be happy with. He’s insightful and knowledgeable. I appreciate how he has pushed me to places of my mind I thought I’d never revisit.
