Wonderful, caring therapist
I would highly recommend Elizabeth. She is very caring, nice, and honest. My 10 year old started therapy with her in December and it's been a great experience. She is very reasonable in cost and accepted my insurance as in-network, which is super helpful.

I met with Elizabeth over the course of several months. She was very positive and helpful. She listened well, gave honest and useful feedback, and always had suggestions for resources to check out. I appreciated that I could meet with her virtually during COVID and even when I moved out of state (until I found a counselor in my new location). I'm very thankful my nurse practitioner recommended Elizabeth and I would encourage anyone who is seeking a positive counseling experience to book an appointment with her.

Elizabeth James is a compassionate caregiver, patient and understanding. She worked with me over many months to help me with depression complicated by a serious illness. Through her gentle guidance I am well, and have regained joy and happiness in my life. I strongly recommend her.

I worked with Elizabeth for about a year and really benefited from her services. She caters the therapy environment to what you need in that moment while always focusing on your personal goals. She helped me through a very difficult time in my life. I would recommend her to anyone!

Elizabeth was so helpful to my fiance and I during a time that felt like rock bottom. She is an excellent listener (will remember stories you told her weeks before), knows how to gently guide clients positively towards their goals, ultimately how to empower her clients to continue the healing process. She was always ready right on schedule and easy to contact through email if there were any calendar conflicts. I especially appreciated her storytelling style and her ability to use concrete examples such as books, movies, or personal anecdotes to illustrate her points. We never felt judged--only seen and heard. Highly recommend!!!

Ms. James helped me through a tough time in my life. I worked with her for almost a year if I remember correctly. She listened to my story. I felt heard, comfortable, and understood. Ms. James is a kind person and always wants to help. She went out of her way to help. I remember she would email me resources during the week. I am grateful to have met her. She helped me take control of my life when things were beyond my control. Thank you!

Found someone I can open up to about issues I am facing and received guidance in handling them. Had to pay out of pocket but reasonable cost. Grateful for the experience.

She was fantastic. She helped me through the bereavement process that often follows a divorce and helped me manage my bi-polar disorder. She is compassionate and caring, professional and understanding. I would recommend her to anyone seeking counseling services.

Elizabeth is one of the most compassionate people I've ever met. I found her to be very helpful when I was trying to understand some of the issues I had. She's very insightful and I always knew that she was working in my best interest. I found it very easy to talk to her and to open up so that I could get the most out of my experience with her.

Elizabeth has been one of the most compassionate, helpful therapists I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She would always affirm the truth about who I was and what I was capable of, which helped me immensely when I struggled with self-doubt, fear and comparison. Her straightforward, storytelling style really helped me gain clarity when I would struggle with confusion and with the "I'm all alone in this" syndrome that tends to plague so many of us. Elizabeth is amazing and I'm proud to say that she's a wonderful part of my healing process. Do yourself a favor and meet with her.

Elizabeth is fantastic. Very insightful, and very helpful. Definitely helped me get through some of the issues I was having. One major bonus is that she perfectly read when I was ready to cut back in terms of visits per month, and then ready to terminate altogether. She's not just going to keep having you come in when you don't really need to. I have had that experience in the past with one other therapist. She knows what she is doing :)

I sought out help from Elizabeth due to feeling overwhelemed/stressed/depressed over work and life issues. She was very personable and made it easy to discuss issues that were affecting me and helped me to work through them. It was a good journey that she guided me through, and I would recommend her for certain
