Hello and welcome. My name is Dr. James and I am a licensed psychologist working with kids, adults, and families in therapy. If your child or teen struggles with managing big and difficult feelings, low self-esteem, relationship or school issues, or if you are someone who worries about everything, put others before yourself, or thinks you are not good enough or can't do anything right, then you are in the right place! Many people enter my office wanting to live their best lives but not knowing where or how to start. I am here to help guide you or your child on that journey.

A woman's mental health is as important as her physical health. Have you recently given birth and cannot shake feelings of despair or fear? Are you struggling with a health diagnosis or grieving over a failed relationship? Maybe you are a parent who believes your teen could benefit from speaking with a therapist. You are not alone. As a working mother I understand the daily demands in a woman's life, and as a professional who has worked with children, adolescents, and adults in acute and outpatient settings I have experience assisting individuals in identifying and communicating their needs.

From the first session, I encourage hope and inner strength in all of my clients. It is my view that all individuals have good qualities, the capability to do well, and have the desire to make changes in their lives. In addition, I believe that negative thinking has a strong effect on people's behaviors and that if they can shift their thinking in a positive manner, they will be motivated and drawn to more pleasant outcomes. I have conducted individual, family, and group therapy in areas such as major life changes, depression, anxiety, and teen issues.

I also do parenting consultations and behavior modification treatment for children and adolescent (ages 4+).
Kate Braestrup says it best: "I'm not here to keep you from freaking out. I'm here to be with you while you freak out, or grieve or laugh or suffer or sing. It is a ministry of presence. It is showing up with a loving heart." I truly believe that everyone could benefit from psychotherapy at some point in their lives -- we all need support. Taking the step towards seeking help of any kind can sometimes be difficult. I consider it a privilege to be chosen to walk out life's challenges with you.

At each stage, we face different challenges that can be tough to move throughout. I specialize in treating adult individuals during transitions and adjustments through life. Being an adolescent is tough, but what about that decade or a few after? Emerging adults at the crossroads of life, love, and career. Women transforming into mothers, that perinatal and postpartum rollercoaster. A difficult health diagnosis where you have to explore what your new normal is. At all these crossroads, we can get anxiety and depression, or feel paralyzed with fear or loss, and at anytime, any of these feelings can bubble up.

For many years, I worked with individuals, couples, and families focusing on issues such as sexuality, work-family balance, religiosity issues, adolescent development, clergy stress, as well as issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, and other mental health challenges.
I am a Marital and Family Therapist and I have been working with individuals, couples, and families for over 25 years. I believe in the worth and value of all humans and support their desire to have joy, fulfillment, creativity, and to have control of their destiny. I recognize that some experiences negatively impact our ability to access our internal and external resources to cope with what life throws at us, and so, we find ourselves needing the support of one who is trained and skilled to assist us on that journey toward growth, healing, and change.

I'm glad you're here! It means you're ready to take a big step toward your life being what you want it to be. When things aren't working in our lives it's like all the air gets sucked out of the space. Worried about your teen /pre- teen ? Feeling stuck and unfulfilled in your own relationships? Depressed or anxious? Where do I begin, you may ask.

Sometimes the families that look perfect on the outside struggle behind closed doors. Moms are grappling to make picture-perfect Pinterest parties for kids who barely speak to them, make sure her parents can still live independently, connect to husbands who are trying to succeed amid the stresses of work, all while surpassing expectations at the office. It's hard to explain to your teenager why they should have to work for their trip to Europe because it builds "character", in a Kardashian society.

I specialize in individual therapy for teenagers (I especially love working with teen girls!) , college students, young adults and young professionals.
What's your story? I'd love to hear it. Everything you have done in your life, every person you've met, every interaction you've had, every hurt, every hope, every heart you've encountered leads up to the summary of your personal story you know so well. Our stories are usually focused on pain, disappointment, and negative change. But our stories can be altered. I believe I can help you see the sparkling, secure storyline hiding beneath the painful one. Our imagination is another realm in which we look at our lives. I am currently offering virtual and walk & talk outdoor (in-person) sessions.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Atlanta and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
