WHAT CLIENTS SAY?
"Initially, I sought therapy to address a difficult situation at the time. However, my experience was so positive that I have continued on as a client. I would say that without a doubt the advice and council I have received has improved the quality of my life significantly. My fiance was not a believer in therapy and had never been to see a psychologist before. He found Jame's advice to be so impactful that he now has a regular appointment with him and looks forward to their conversations."
"I have known James for decades and can attest that he is ethical, talented, and professional mental health providers. He was a great help to me when I was facing divorce after a long marriage. Today I find myself a content, well-rounded woman who enjoys life on her own terms."
"My experience with James has been a positive friendship and professional relationship that has spanned the past seven years. James is innovative and gifted as a therapist and businessman."
"I've known James Robbins for many years. I've always known him to be a person of high integrity, honesty and compassion. Being a therapist isn't just a job for James, but a calling. He's not one to condescend or judge, as he feels people are doing the best they can in difficult circumstances. James comes from the heart, and is the most dedicated counselor I know. I recommend him to anyone who's ready to take that next step in their life."
"James is truly talented and patient. He does a great job listening without judging and makes it easy for the patient to open up and get the help that they need."
