Joyce V James, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Southbury
My clients often are dealing with life changes such as loss and grief, overwhelming emotions that leave them immobilized with depression, anxiety and panic attacks. I assist them in developing coping skills so that they can successfully address their issues and begin taking action which is to their benefit. Clients are able to address their life changes and move forward. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! Come to learn how to get there!
I specialize in supporting clients through difficult life situations. My clients learn tools to assist them in managing and coping effectively with the challenges they have now and with skills to use in the future. They report feelings of well being and effectiveness in managing their lives.
I have a flexible schedule, with day and evening appointments. My goal is to assist my clients in addressing their issues so they can move forward successfully to enjoy a great quality of life.
