James is very thoughtful and patient, and I really enjoy talking to him. He pays attention and is not dismissive, but also keeps me on task for some of the goals I have by subtly pointing out if I'm procrastinating or making excuses for things. Making my priorities an actual priority is something he has really helped me to think about.

James is a great listener, and when asked provides excellent advice. He is considerate and helps me think outside of the box, and also reinforces good behavior in a positive way.
