Hello! My name is James “Jim” Perry, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oklahoma. I have several years of experience in the field of mental health and also work at a psychiatric inpatient hospital in the Oklahoma City area. I primarily work with adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, career issues, relationship and marriage problems, and other life challenges that often get in the way of “just doing life”. I also work with couples having intimacy issues or marriage problems, and helping career professionals who are experiencing work related problems.
My approach is to develop a very relaxed, non-threatening, non-clinical therapeutic relationship with my clients. I recognize that the first step to a better life is often the most difficult, especially when it seems terrifying to jump out of your own comfort zone. I help my clients to take that first step by simply starting a conversation about what your life is like, what you would like your life to be like, and how you can get there.
I completed my Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology at Southern Nazarene University in December of 2014. I also have a Master’s and Bachelor’s Degree in Education, which I utilize in my work along with career minded professionals. Over the past 7 years, I have worked in various sectors in the field of mental health, including working with clients experiencing mild to severe mental health issues in both outpatient and inpatient settings.
If you are searching for direction, contentment, and/or need help getting past an obstacle in your personal or professional life, I would welcome the opportunity to walk through it along with you.

James has been very helpful with navigating my interior monologue & seeing situations for what they currently are. I look forward to his perspective and my outlook after our sessions.
My counselor, James Perry, is leaving a positive impact far beyond our current discussions. The future generations of my family are better off tomorrow because of his time spent with myself today.
This man is the reason I'm still on this website. He listens to me, understands and tells me how to control my feelings and thoughts. I have grown so much because of him
James is extremely attentive and helpful. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with him.
