About Me

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.

Hello, my name is James Harrison and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 12 years of experience bringing knowledge from a broad range of mental health settings including; adult outpatient clinics; schools for children with special needs; adult residential treatment facilities; foster care and adoption centers; and family preservation agencies. My work has also included individual therapy, community-based therapy, directing medication management facilities, and supporting group homes (locally and out-of-state) with the purpose of meeting clients where they are.

The essence of my approach is warm and genuinely focused on facilitating, identifying, and assisting clients resolve goals that are meaningful to them. I take into consideration the person's identity, culture, traditions, and relationships they have established to match them with the best theoretical approach. The work I do with clients is guided by a practice of being courageous, compassionate, and person-centered. My intention is to move at your pace to build a valuable connection, so that you can receive the support you're seeking.

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!
