Dr. James Wadley

(Ph.D, LPC, CST)

About Me

Do you have trust issues in your relationship? Afraid to be honest with your partner and tired of trying to be someone you're not? Do you find yourself having regrets about a current or previous relationship? Do you have an inability to be intimate with your partner because of a past trauma or challenge? Contact me and we will talk about what you do, what you think, and how you feel about your challenges and together come up with a strategy for you to MOVE FORWARD!

I am a licensed professional counselor and am a marriage, family, and AASECT certified sexuality therapist as well as an addictions specialist (e.g., drugs, sex, gambling, etc). My clients include individuals, couples, and families who struggle with entitlement, infidelity, codependency, parenting, self-esteem, relational history, trauma, compulsivity and sexual dysfunction issues that have not been resolved. I earned my Ph.D from the University of Pennsylvania and completed post-graduate clinical training at Thomas Jefferson University/Council for Relationships.

My time can be "flexed" to accommodate the client's schedule. I also make special accommodations for high end clients with regard to time, location, and availability. I maintain a welcoming and affirming practice for LGBTQAI. Finally, I am the author of "The Lost and Found Box" which is a book about rediscovering happiness.

It’s been so helpful to have Dr Wadley in my corner. He asks the right questions to help me realize how I can best help myself. He has been very understanding and compassionate which makes this process a lot easier on me than I thought it was going to be. This is my first time taking to a therapist and I’m very happy with the solutions he has helped me work through so far.
