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.

James is great! He listens and offers practical advice. He holds me accountable and knows his stuff very well. He has given me some tools for my ADHD that have been extremely helpful.

James was extremely helpful with any issues that I had and always offered any kind of help no matter the issue. I thank him many times over for his service and experience.

James is really easy to talk to, and is very relatable with the way he gives advice. He understands scenarios quickly, and is good at recognizing things for what they truly are (opposed to my skewed views). Compared to previous therapists, he understands me and recognizes how I like to communicate. Would recommend him to anyone :)

I have used Ryan before in person and after I left therapy I searched for three-fours years just because he has been the only therapist I’ve had that has actually cared. I consider Ryan to be one of the best therapists available
