Jim generously shares his humor and wisdom with compassion and respect. He creates a nurturing environment that encourages honesty, healing, and learning. Jim has supported me to accept my whole self, to connect with the good person I know myself to be, and to commit to choosing the life I want to live.

It’s has been great to work with Jim. He has a knack for cutting through noise and clutter to get to the heart of a matter—and then addressing whatever it is directly but with compassion. With those parts of myself I don’t like to look at, he’s been great at helping me see them and understand why they’re there. I’m making better choices now and becoming more fully the person I truly am.

Ever since moving to a new city, I'd been wanting to find a therapist, but my work schedule was so hectic that I never had the time to either make an appointment or get to one. When Jim was recommended to me as someone who could offer counseling over the phone, I finally had an option I could work with! We clicked immediately. I was surprised to find that I felt even more comfortable opening up over the phone than I normally do face-to-face. From the very start, Jim was engaged, thoughtful, and caring, and I was able to spill my thoughts to him!
