James SearingLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
Hello! I'm a social justice/antiracist allied therapist who works well with creatives, geeks, gamers, LGBTQ+ folx and divergent thinkers.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a classic talk therapy technique that helps increase awareness of negative thinking in order to better handle challenging situations. In addition to helping those with mental health disorders (such as anxiety or depression), CBT is also helpful for anyone who is looking to learn how to manage stressful situations. Therapists that use CBT often have a structured program, which involves a set number of sessions. CBT is frequently paired with other treatments, such as medication, when necessary. Think this approach may be right for you? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s CBT experts today.
I specialize in working with those who have experienced trauma, people dealing with issues relating to codependency, and people who have yet to have positive and meaningful experiences in therapy. My therapeutic style is compassionate and client-oriented. My strengths lie in finding the balance between being a compassionate listener while also being direct.
As a CBT-certified therapist, I am passionate about counseling and guiding young adults in contemporary issues and challenges unique to them. They seek the inner clarity, confidence, and long-lasting skills and strategies to improve their relationship to Self and others, resolve career-related issues, and live life confidently. They seek to move past the limiting effects of their emotional and psychological struggles in order to achieve their goals and be at their best.
Having trouble navigating through life? Hitting roadblocks within different relationships? Do you have doubt about your identity and worth? I am available to provide a safe, open space in which we can work collaboratively to support you in your journey of healing. I have a background of working with youth and children dealing with depression, anxiety and the throws of life.
