James Norris

(MA, LMHC)

About Me

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Washington State with over 7 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, anger management, and struggles with adjustment to change. I also helped many people who have experienced physical, verbal, or emotional trauma.

My counseling style is open, empathic, and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines humanistic, existential, client-centered and reality-based counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
