About

Some people fear therapy as intimidating. You can be assured that it is just a conversation, and I want to hear your story. You have the strength and resources to achieve any goals that you set in life, with just a little guidance. You can enjoy the process of therapy and learn to love yourself at a deeper level. Calling a therapist can create a little bit of anxiety, but few therapists are as down-to-earth as me. Just take a slow, deep breath and give me a call. Visit my professional website and schedule an appointment. https://dr-james-heartfelt-minds.clientsecure.me/
Life goes by too quickly to allow negative emotions, trauma, or bad relationships control us. That’s where therapy can be so helpful, whether it’s navigating life transitions, seeking to reach your full potential, or needing an unbiased and objective opinion. Together we can release your emotional pain, freeing you to find meaning in life. There is hope.
In 11 years as a therapist, I have helped clients find solutions in moments of desperation. I have been a clinical supervisor for therapists who are former graduate students and interns. I have trained other therapists in cutting-edge therapies for treatment of stress, anxiety, depression, anger, and addiction. Now let me help you. #heartfeltminds
