"We have more help than you have problems." I have been walking with people in their life stories for many years. My office is a shame-free, safe place for my clients to be vulnerable, open, and to take a deeper look at what is hindering them from being the best version of themselves. Counseling is an important investment of a person's time and money. I listen actively and work hard for my clients in their sessions to help them experience the life change and healing they are looking for. I also do 2 and 3 day counseling intensives.

I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT). I help men who are trapped in pornography, affairs, and sexual brokenness. I work with men and women to help them understand the impact of past trauma, abuse, and self-defeating behaviors. I also do marital counseling, and lead experiential therapy groups.

So many people are hindered by the unhealed trauma, abuse, rejection, and family of origin issues from their past. Trauma must be healed experientially. This is why I use safe, proven, experiential therapy, as well as other effective tools to help my clients find the help and hope they need.

Jim Cress's Groups

Real Men in Real Relationships

I have lead men's therapy groups for many years. I currently offer men's experiential therapy groups on Tuesday nights. These groups have a proven effectiveness in helping men face the deeper issues that are causing problems in their individual lives, marriage, and family.

More about this group

The Daring Way

"The Daring Way" group is based on the research and creativity of Dr. Brene' Brown. This experiential group for women and men helps people discover the ways shame keeps them living in unhealthy ways. We explore vulnerability, authenticity, and courage for identifying the underlying causes of shame, guilt, and self-defeating behaviors. We then use experiential and creative methods to start showing up in the arenas of life where we can live out the fullest expression of who we really are.
