James Novick's bio

This content was provided by James Novick "My career path has taken me through outpatient clinics, in-patient units, residential treatment centers, correctional facilities and school settings. I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds and wide age ranges with numerous reasons for seeking treatment. Most recently I have focused on helping persons affected by substance use disorders and have specialized in treatment of opiate use disorders and I have a desire to continue to address this specific area of need in the area. I value each client at his or her own place in life and enthusiastically enter in to each person's journey to health, well-being and full functioning. Having been Director of Mental Health Services at the Bristol County Jail and House of Correction for nearly a decade, I have significant experience treating dually diagnosed individuals. I am familiar with the requirements of court mandated treatments, accept persons referred by probation and parole, and have established treatment protocols for court involved clients. Through use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and a solution focused approach, I work with my clients towards the combined goals of increased functioning and decreased distress from symptom presentation."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by James Novick "James S. Novick, M.Ed., LMHC


My goal is to provide solution focused and compassionate treatment. I attend to each client as an individual and draw upon more than twenty years of post-graduate clinical experience in each and every encounter. 

Treatment is focused on the client improving ability to function and to resolve the primary issues leading to seeking treatment.

The choice to enter and fully engage in a therapeutic relationship indicates a personal desire to look at the present and the path one's life has taken.The relationship created between client and therapist is crucial to the development of a rationale assessment and reasonable treatment plan. Great emphasis is put on the creation of a safe, open and honest relationship, allowing the client to make full use of the time. Therapy is difficult but rewarding work and requires commitment to the process."
