Jim provides a great blend of listening while offering advice and suggestions aided by his years of experience. In just about every topic he and I have discussed, he is able to give a helpful story from his own life or what he has witnessed, providing concrete real-life examples. He has a very pleasant personality and is completely nonjudgmental. I highly recommend his services.
I really recommend counseling with Jim! I had never sought counseling before, and I was doubtful that it would be helpful. However, thanks to the past few weeks of sessions with Jim, I have really improved my state of mind. He kind of acts as a thought detective - he will listen to you talk, and ask questions that give you great insights into when and how your thoughts become harmful. I am taking a break right now to work on some of the subjects we discussed together, but when I need more guidance in the future I will attempt to be matched with Jim again!
Jim is a great counselor, who can listen to, relate, and normalize the things I experience. He challenges me to think in healthy ways and our sessions are always productive.
Jim has been attentive and interested in my well being and life since the first session. He’s incredibly understanding and supportive and encourages me to challenge my negative thoughts and moods. I appreciate his insight, expertise, and professionalism. He helps talk me through my thoughts so I can understand them better. I highly recommend him.
