James brings over 30 years of direct counseling care experience to his role as a residential therapist. He has a passion for exploring edges with people striving to make significant change in their lives. With a therapeutic orientation exploring mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, interpersonal neurobiology, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), somatic, and gestalt approaches, James strives to match what is needed in the moment to facilitate inner growth. When trauma and loss impact our lives we often have a chance to slow down enough to use these experiences to reflect and transform. It may be only because of these times that great growth is possible. James brings presence, caring, and steady support to these deep waters.
James is also an actor and theatre creator facilitating storytelling as artistic expression. Working with horses, snowboarding, hiking, board games, and yoga are pursuits he enjoys with his family in Lyons, CO.
