Suzanne James

(LCSW, CCTP)

About Me

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Arkansas since 2000. I have worked in inpatient and outpatient settings with ages ranging from preschool to geriatric populations. I have worked with a wide range of issues, including past trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, grief, and other problems that affect day-to-day functioning.

My counseling style is strengths-based and solution-focused. I ultimately became a social worker to help others identify strengths and resources to get them through obstacles to meet their goals. We all need guidance and support throughout our lives. I believe in providing this with compassion, focus, and even humor at times. With BetterHelp's platform, counseling can be provided discreetly and conveniently to work with your hectic schedule. I look forward to working with you!

Suzanne James is absolutely wonderful. She listens and is always willing to work with me in a positive manner, offering techniques to manage my anxiety and work on some of my deeper issues. I highly recommend Suzanne to anyone!

I’ve been working with Susanne for 2 weeks now and let me just say— she is amazing! Our sessions are super meaningful and I feel like I learn so much more about myself after turn with her! She responds quickly to messages and truly cares about her clients! You will not be disappointed with her as your counselor!

Suzanne and I have only had a few sessions together but I feel like each has been meaningful. She has set me a goal and sent me worksheets to keep learning between our sessions. She listens to my concerns and I'm very much looking forward to working with her more in the coming weeks.
