James is a consummate professional and I would highly recommend him. He's friendly and talks to you like a real person who cares for his patients.
James is truly amazing! He knows and understands what I’m dealing with along with helping me understand it along with the why’s and how’s of the issues. He then also gives me ways to make them better. Best part is he calls me out on my crap and doesn’t let me use “princess” answers. He also helps me with ideas of different things such as ways to make things happen but he always ties them back in to what I’m working on. He is so knowledgeable and open it makes talking to him easy!
Jim is really down to earth and I appreciate how he just tells it like it is. He is very supportive and our sessions always end on a positive note.
James is excellent!
