Dr. James Holmes, President Elect

I focus on providing individualized, person-centered, and recovery-based therapy services and high-quality assessments. I've provided individual and group therapy to a wide range of clients within a psychiatric hospital, university counseling center, and outpatient facilities. I primarily utilize a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach to help examine and modify unhealthy thoughts and beliefs and replace them with healthier ones. Treatment will focus on emphasizing your strengths, accomplishing your goals, and feeling less distress. I also have over 9 years of experience conducting forensic and psychological assessments.
