I have been seeing James for almost 6 years now. He has helped me to help myself transform my life with my ADHD and bipolar. His ethics and professionalism is the best I've seen in all my years of going to counseling
Mr. Smith was knowledgeable concerning my issues and would give helpful feedback when appropriate. It was particularly helpful to me to learn how to deal effectively with my own negative self-talk. I discovered ways to question, challenge and disbelieve in those destructive thoughts and replace them with more realistic thoughts. Redirecting my attention was another valuable tool I picked up from Mr. Smith.

I read the very negative review about Mr. Smith on this site and it doesn't seem like the reviewer is talking about the same person. Mr. Smith always contacts me ahead of our scheduled appointment to make sure that I am still planning on being there for our session.

I guess the bottom line is this; I feel like Mr. Smith listens to and understands me.
Smith frequently missed appointments, and I was driving in from out of town. I was seeing him because I was trying to cope with the death of my father, but the fact that I routinely wound up staring at the locked door of his office just served to worsen my mental state, rubbing salt into the abandonment issues I was dealing with. If you're a professional and going to take even a little responsibility for the mental health of others, at least show up. I eventually just stopped going. I have never been able to bring myself to see another mental health professional after this experience.
