NOTE: At this time, I am only working by texting, or using the audio feature to leave voice texts, which I find MUCH easier than typing, and often much more personal, and connecting.....I prefer to not do video or audio sessions. I find that texting and voice texting helps the counseling process span the whole week rather than being a random one hour session which may or may not end up being the time you most need to talk. .Thanks for understanding. I know some people prefer that, but I am not offering that at this time.
We all experience challenges, uncertainties, relationship issues, career and work issues, mood stuff, family stuff, or anxiety. It's part of being human during these really chaotic times. It is really smart to look for support when going through these kinds of things. Good for you...
I am supportive, non-judgmental, have good advice when advice is appropriate. I have traveled a lot, and it helps me understand where many people are coming from. My clients are from all over the world.
I have a good sense of humor, and I am not afraid to use it in our work.
I'm very approachable and authentic. I want connect with my clients, which is even more important, working online like this. If you look at my web site, you will get more of a flavor for who I am. That's drjamesmichaelnolan.com
I tend to focus on the positive, toward possibilities, toward resources and strengths. I do not spend too much time hanging out in negativity, if possible. That doesn't mean we can't talk about hard stuff--I just don't want us to hang out there for a long time before moving toward something more positive in your life.
My last full-time job was as a President of a graduate school that trained Counselors. I did that for almost 13 years.
I am an INFP on the Myers-Briggs,

Thankyou Dr. Nolan. I can't express my appreciation for him. He addresses all that you tell him, and in a timely matter too. I love how I can communicate with him whenever I need to and he reply's with positive perspective and sincerely too. He adds a little humor and talks to you as a real person and not just a professional telling you there thoughts. I never use to be a believer of counseling until I had Dr. James as my counselor for the past month. Highly Recommend!!!

In the short time I've spent talking with Dr. Nolan I feel I gained a true confidant and a solid listener. It is not often that an individual can make you feel heard, understood and encouraged all at the same time yet, he does! I value his honesty and his direct responses as much as the ability he has to relate to me as another human being. I feel like I gained a great amount of insight and wisdom from our conversations, things I will continue to think on and utilize.

Dr. Nolan is down to earth, open minded and really listens to what I have to say. I can tell he reflects on it before responding. I have enjoyed my sessions with him and have really seen a change within myself since speaking with him.

I love Jim! The fact I can call him Jim and leave little voice messages throughout the day is nice. And later I usually have a message from him that validates all my feeling and sometimes makes me think in a direction I might not have. I'll be keeping Jim around for a while.
