About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Addiction Counselor in Colorado and I have been practicing for the past 16 years as a counselor. I have a great deal of experience with clients with various concerns including depression, anxiety, panic disorders, relationship difficulties and addictions.
My approach to counseling is predominantly cognitive-behavioral, though I am passionate about existential and humanistic approaches to counseling and have a great deal of experience in addressing clients with existential concerns. Because of my alignment with humanistic approaches to counseling, I value an engaging and genuine interaction with my clients.
As a veteran of the U.S. Army and a veteran of the Iraq war, I am uniquely suited to the concerns of other veterans and have experience in counseling veterans, first responders and their families. As a Licensed Addiction Counselor, I have many years of experience in working with clients in recovery from substance addiction and other addictive behaviors.
Seeking out counseling is an important part of engaging in a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. I look forward to helping you meet your goals!

LPC #4580 (Expires: 2023-08-31)


Written by D.A. on Sep 14, 2021 after counseling with James for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, anger management, and coaching

Dr. Reed is pragmatic and has a great perspective.

Written by J.O. on Apr 30, 2021 after counseling with James for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, anger management, and coping with life changes

Dr. Reed has an exceptional ability to hear and see through struggles even over the phone. His capacity for providing care is only matched by consistency with his humanistic values. I found him in one of the most muddled, dark and existentially frightening period of my life thus far. I was lost in alcohol and lost physically. Just through a few weeks working together I had learned the presence of mind to detox and seeking rehabilitation.

So far we have connected well. I’m looking forward to more connections.
