James is a wonderful therapist. He is a great listener, excellent communicator and very patient. Most importantly, if you are willing to put in the work, James will frequently give you worksheets, tasks, and many other tools to keep you on track and thinking. He uses these worksheets, tasks, and tools to make each session more and more impactful. From my experience with him, therapy has been a game changer in my life.
