James White


About Me

My name is James “Ryan” White. I am a licensed therapist in the state of Alabama. I have been a therapist for more than nine years. I have been licensed for almost 5 years. I specialize in dialectical behavioral therapy. Specifically, DBT informed therapy. What that means for my clients is real solutions to problems quickly using DBT skills. DBT skills allow you to better control and understand your emotions. These skills have worked wonders with my clients with depressive disorders, panic disorders, and PTSD. I specialize in personality disorders as well. Over the years I have worked with adults with mental disorders as well as substance abuse difficulties. I look forward to working with you and helping you to identify goals- so that you can look forward to life after whatever difficulties you’re having now . Remember whatever brings you here is just a chapter of your life it’s not the whole book. Let’s work together to rewrite your story so that you look forward to the days ahead.

LPC #3479 (Expires: 2021-07-31)


Written by C.H. on Jun 29, 2020 after counseling with James for 5 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

I have only had two sessions with James and I can not recommend him enough. He listen to me and I feel like he understands me and it doesn't feel like I'm a bother. He has been the best help I've had from a counselor.
