I have been in the helping profession since 2006. My career has focused on those handcuffed by substance use disorders and complex trauma. I have been fortunate to have worked all of the US providing interventions and clinical case management support to clients in the early stages of recovery. Over the years I have developed multiple programs to assist clients in accessing sustained recovery from substance use disorders and processing traumas that have paralyzed them from engaging life. My typical client is one who is just getting ready to dip their toe into the idea of recovery or starting the healing process. Many times families begin the process with a phone call and a consultation. I completed my undergraduate education at Vanderbilt University in 1996 and my master’s degree in counseling from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2006.

James has been nothing but excellent. He pushes me when I need to be pushed, he supports me when I need support, and he always knows what to ask. He is always in contact, and I genuinely feel that he cares about me as an individual. I would highly recommend James to others in situations where they need some guidance or help
James is an amazing, empathetic listener and has totally changed how I think about myself. Best counsellor I’ve ever had.
He cares. He is flexible and provides sound and thoughtful advice.
I'm so glad I was matched with James, he has been very patient with me through my journey and has also challenged my perceptions both of myself and situations that have affected my confidence and self worth.
The habits he has helped me to set through our time together to aid my mental health has changed my life.
He is a fantastic councillor, patient ,informative and feels more like a friend.
James is excellent. Builds trust, and deftly offers support and guidance
I feel as though James understands what I'm going through and really listens to me. He has been strong when he thought I could handle it and gentle when I couldn't and he knows when those times are. Thanks so much!
James is extremely supporting and he is always sending messages to check on you. He is used with working with non-americans, which is pretty cool. I think his existential approach is very useful, or at least it's working well for me.
I am pleased with the grief counseling services that James is providing. He provides clear and helpful ways to deal with grief. I look forward to our weekly online sessions. #TEAMJAMESLOFFREDO
So far, so good! I like his vibe. I like that he knows when to interrupt me. He gives me insightful questions to direct my thinking.
Very understanding and personable. Gives practical advice. Highly recommended
So far with the little time we’ve spent I really believe he has an understanding of my needs and wants. I have a lot of issues and a lot more trauma then I cared to admit. But I can see a little light at the end of the tunnel to mend some issues after our first Session alone.
James is about as personable and real as it gets. He is a great listener, can relate to everything I say, and makes sure I’m doing ok even if I don’t come to him first. 100% recommend.
