Michael James, MS, LPC, LCAC, LCP, NCC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Kansas City
Michael James is not currently accepting new clients.
Taking the step to participate in therapy/counseling takes tremendous courage and desire for something in one's life to be different. As a therapist, my job is to create an atmosphere that encourages alliance between therapist and client, a key component for successful therapy. I consider myself primarily a generalist in types of clients I work with as I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples and groups.
The therapy relationship makes the theory and techniques used most effective.Building this is the first task in a therapeutic relationship. Through this alliance clients and I venture on a journey often anxiety provoking (as any/all change is) and develop skills and strategies to managed problems and resolve difficulties.
My theoretical approach draws from many areas. The primary influence is cognitive behavioral theory. What is best and most effective is very individual to each client and situation. To Schedule an appointment please email, or call MAPS scheduling line.
