Seeking help when things don't feel quite right takes courage. Sometimes we don't know exactly what's blocking us, other times that thing is too big for us to ignore. No matter what it is that you’re dealing with, I’m grateful that you decided to listen to yourself and have chosen this path to boost your support. I'm rooting for you. My hope is that together we can uncover significant ways for you to continue rising into your best self, define your wholeness, and audaciously live your truth.

James has been instrumental in helping me get back on the right track. I feel like I have someone who not only listens but reminds me of the power I have in my own life.
James has been wonderful for me in my times of need and also to bounce ideas off of in the calmer times. He’s helped me reframe my struggles and is always a great listener without judgment.
James is incredibly supportive, level headed, and relatable. He's a friend resource to bounce ideas off of and talk through concerns with.
Spoke with James today. Appreciated his professionalism and at the same time made me feel comfortable enough to open up to him.
I am new to this process of “online” therapy.... but after a couple of video sessions and written messages with James, I am thrilled to have this ability to get help and now a 100% believer in the medium. I couldn’t be happier with James Harrison and his approach thus far, and I have already recommended this site to friends and family. Thank you and I look forward to continuing on.
I found Mr. Harrison to be thoughtful, intelligent, and excellent at listening to me. He had a good understanding right away from what I was trying to communicate and accomplish with therapy. I found him to be extremely insightful and his suggestions helpful. I would definitely recommend him!
James is great. Sometimes his guidance reminds me of a fortune cookie but he always finds a way to make things relevant and helpful.
James has met and exceeded my expectations in counseling. He has great perspective and offers me some great opportunities to reflect and come up with some solid answers to improving my sense of happiness. I'm grateful to have him as a therapist. From day 1, he's been great with making me feel respected and important.
James Harrison has been an amazing counselor and has truly helped me open up understand and has helped me on my healing process. Would totally recommend to my friends and family.
