Collaborative by nature, James aims to provide a caring and safe space where you feel validated, valued, and are open to exploring new parts of yourself. His understanding of personal change and growth is grounded in both psychodynamic and systems theories. Together, you’ll focus on how some of your early histories may inform your present challenges while also acknowledging the impact of the familial, institutional, and cultural systems in which you live. In addition, James believes that a consistent sense of curiosity and authentic presence with you, where multiple meanings can be explored, is paramount to growth-promoting and healing therapy.
James hopes to bring people into therapy who are committed to collaboratively exploring and understanding themselves in ways they feel are essential to their growth. He is eager to work with people who are curious about how some of their patterns may be creating obstacles to their growth.
