About

I like people.

I’m a counselor committed to helping couples and individuals discover and become the most authentic version of themselves. My work with couples is focused on identifying barriers to connection and equipping them with the tools they need to overcome them. My work with individuals combines a wide variety of techniques drawn from therapeutic traditions like CBT, narrative therapy, polyvagal theory, and mindfulness to help people come home to themselves. One of my passions is helping people learn and grow. I’ve got a podcast on relationships called Super Together, which you can subscribe to at www.supertogether.org. I’ve also created some e-classes for couples which you can purchase at www.convergecourses.com. AVAILABILITY UPDATE May 2021: I'm excited to connect with new clients, but there is a currently a short wait for services at both the Westport and Leawood locations. Wait times may vary depending on how flexible your schedule is (i.e., if there are only a couple of times that will work for you, it may take longer than usual). If you would like to schedule an appointment, please reach out to my scheduler at schedule@talkingwithjames.com or 913-603-7353.
