Hi! I am Jim Julian and hold a doctorate in General Psychology and am licensed in the state of Connecticut. It has been my pleasure to work with people who might have more personal distress than they wish to handle alone. My treatment approach can vary from person to person depending on their wants and needs. However, I am a Humanist at heart and have a positive view of human nature. Therefore my approach could be from a person centered therapy perspective where we establish a trusting and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship. where we try and separate the person and the problem. However, I can also switch to another area of humanism known as cognitive -behavioral therapy where we could examine a person's way of thinking and viewing the world. In the final analysis I am here to help people. and welcome anyone who wants to examine their life, behavior, or relationships. Thanks so much for reading this and I look forward to meeting you.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues
I also have experience in Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

Jim helped me greatly in getting my life and mind back in order. I'm still far from perfect, but with his help I was able to recognize that injecting just a little positive thinking and mindfulness into your life, even if something feels hopeless, can really help to slow and eventually stop the out of control negativity that I was so used to. I appreciate it greatly.
James is fantastic and easy to talk to. He is completely non-judgmental.
Great dynamic - I enjoyed my sessions and I felt he was able to look at things for me in ways that I was not!!! I felt he understood exactly where I was coming from and truly tried to guide me in the right direction!!!
Jim has been great. He's challenged me on a lot of bad habits that were fueling my anxiety and encouraged me to focus on personal wellness, which has always been hard. In just a few weeks, I noticed that I was internalizing a lot of his positivity and making decisions that put me out of my comfort zone but made me feel happy and proud.
Jim is an amazing man. He had great feedback from the start and has helped me see my situation in a new light. His energy and positivity really come through and even if we discussed tough, emotional topics; I always felt better and positive after our sessions. Highly recommend.
I've worked with Jim for over a year, and he has helped me through so many challenges. I truly felt heard, listened to, and understood. Jim always made sure to reflect back what I was conveying to ensure he understood fully. He seemed to spend his time with each of my messages and was always available during crises. We often messaged back and forth several times a day when I was struggling the most. Jim is a wonderful counselor and I am extremely grateful for all of the help he gave me this past year and a half. Thank you so much, Jim!
I've never talked to someone so knowledgeable and professional, but still so personable and down to earth.
I had gone through a dramatic breakup that had taken quite the toll on me and was causing a ton of stress. When I realized I needed a professional perspective, I reached out to Jim. He took time to really listen to me in a way I haven’t been listened to before. He offered his perspective and some solutions I could try. He was even available for a last minute, late night session when I was having issues.
All in all, I’m glad I sought Jim’s professional opinion and have found my situation to be a lot better than before. He helped me see things in a different way and I truly appreciate his commitment to helping.
Jim has helped me in numerous ways. He has showed me how to recognize myself and be proud of my accomplishments. He has always supported me and never judged anything I've had to bring to our sessions. I'm very grateful for his presence and guidance. I've been struggling with binge eating, and he has given me the best advice anyone has ever brought to me - SLOW DOWN. BE PRESENT. Now when I get out of balance, I know it is because I am trying to do too many things at once. I have taken his advice and plan to implement it in my day to day life! Thank you Better Help and Jim!
I was extremely impressed with Jim’s ability to get to the heart of my issue within our very first session. He was also extremely practical and candid. Jim didn’t sugar coat anything, he just laid the issue bare and let me make up my own mind. Very impressed with Jim.
James was a fantastic counselor and really honed in on who I was and what I wanted to accomplish with our conversation. James made me feel immediately comfortable and I was able to express my feelings and perspective.
He's been very compassionate and insightful.
I've been in contact with James for about 2 weeks now, and every time I seem to communicate with him he always seems to have a great answer to help me with in my life. I'm very glad I was placed in contact with him.
James Julian is a personable counselor. He's understanding, motivating, and very easy to talk with. I'm very happy that I was paired with him.
James Julian provides a safe space for me to speak my mind without judging me at all. I'm going through a very difficult time of extreme change and turbulence in my life, and Jim always has a really positive attitude towards how I can deal with my problems.
He is phenomenal, reliable and trustworthy. Totally worth the time, effort and money!
Jim actively engages in conversations with me throughout the week and has helped tremendously in a very short period of time. He always acknowledges my concerns in a timely manner!
Jim acknowledges my difficulties, encourages me and advises me and that helps.
James Julian has been counseling me for a few weeks now and he is nothing but polite,respectful and helpful to my situation. He listens and gives great advice not only for the topic on hand but for life in general. He is very positive and motivating and always checks in to see how things are going. He is always easy to talk to and hasn't judged me or anything so two thumbs up for James Julian.
I like James, he is really trying to help me.
James is aways replying to me very quickly, giving me very practical advice, and he is also quite respectful. I have gained so much confidence from his encouragement. And hopefully I could continue my therapy with him soon again.
So helpful and encouraging - both in text and in video! :)
Jim has been wonderful in helping me deal with anxiety. He's responsive and non-judgmental. I'm a very harsh critic of myself and he works hard to establish a safe place for you to be upfront. Highly recommend.
He is prompt and very good at his analysis.
He has been very thorough and perceptive in his messages and recommendations. Jim is always sympathetic and creates a safe environment, I would highly recommend him.
I have had the honor of working with Dr. James Julian here on BetterHelp. It's the first time in a long time I feel like there is hope. The BetterHelp site has given me a format that works for me to get the help I need. Dr. Julian has been amazing and so insightful. He really listens to what I have to say. For the first time in years I feel like there is hope for me. That depression and anxiety doesn't have to rule my life.
