James M. Benedick currently has a waitlist for new clients.
Feeling depressed, anxious, hopeless? You're at the point that you've tried everything you can think of and nothing has worked? Are you feeling more and more stressed? Whether a long-standing mental health problem or something that has just cropped up, interfering with your important relationships and daily activities, I can help by introducing solutions and supporting you as you work your way to the life you want. A lot of times, simple changes in the way you communicate with your significant others can improve bad relationships quickly, improve your self-esteem, and get you back on the path of accomplishing your life goals.
My name is Jim Benedick. I have been helping people identify and achieve their life goals for 41 years. In the process, my clients have learned to control their thinking, reduce unnecessary stress in their lives, build the satisfying relationships that they are searching for, learn how to act on real threats, control irrational fears and reduce anxiety.
If you need someone to help you over a hump, let me know. I can be reached by phone, text, email, or through my website. I am a licensed clinical social worker with degrees in Social Work and Counseling Psychology and a proven track record.
