James Dunbar, PhD, LGSW

As the song says, we all need somebody to lean on. We often think that needing or asking for assistance, help, is a sign of weakness. In truth it is a sign of great strength. But, I am not here to judge you, I am here to help you; help you determine what you need, help you figure out how to turn negatives into positives, and help you become the you, you want to be. I use a comprehensive technique developed using holistic, cognitive, and humanistic therapies. Clear mind, healthy body, strong spirit; the three work in unison, when one is unsettled the others are strained. My goal is to help you find a way to harmonize in your own unique way.
