James Nole's work focuses not only on one, but how the mind, body, and heart connect and work in harmony. Through mindfulness and psychodynamic work, James believes that one can shift into a friendly, kind, and accepting stance towards one’s own body and mind. Combined with a gestalt, psychoanalytic, and existential orientation, James believes in looking at the big picture, as well as the smaller pieces for each client. Though he specializes in working with disability, chronic conditions, depression, and anxiety—no issue is unwelcomed or off-limits. James believes in working with everyone and developing a therapy catered to each client based on their needs and circumstances.
James works with both individuals and couples—and of all ages and walks of life. He was trained in the existential, phenomenological, and humanistic traditions of psychotherapy. And as such, he believes in putting the client first and moving with you in accordance with your ever-changing and dynamic self. James believes in a therapy that is both creative, and a therapy that possesses fidelity.
James's philosophy is that therapy is a commitment—one that he believes can help one in committing once again or once more to living a fulfilling life. The core of James' approach is existential and relational psychodynamics and stems from his personal experience in learning to live with a disability. His therapeutic approach embraces both the dark and light aspects of life, while also letting go of that which we cannot control.
