What Clients Can Expect: James approaches each client in a way that brings out individual and unique strengths, thoughts, passions, and experiences while at the same time understanding that there is some commonality to all human experiences. Having these two thoughts front and center, James respects each person and empathizes with them while suggesting treatments that have been shown to help people with similar issues. This approach combines Biblical wisdom, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and narrative therapy. James often prescribes assignments to be worked on between sessions which can be an effective way to change negative thoughts and behaviors. God has a lot to say about the human condition and change happens when His insight is brought to a problem and all work together to move toward a happier life.
About: James received an undergraduate degree from University of Maryland and a Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in 2013. He has been married for 8 years and has two amazing boys. James currently lives in Washington DC but sees most of his clients in Maryland.
