ServicesWhen symptoms or problems threaten to erode your (or your family's) health and well-being, psychotherapy has been demonstrated not only to provide relief, but also long-term personal growth and heightened emotional knowledge. This helps to insulate you against the further innumerable challenges in life. Psychotherapy allows you to better understand yourself and others, leading to greater satisfaction in all aspects of lifeó in work, love, family and play.

Dr. Jim Wayland is a psychotherapist in private practice 25 years focusing on adults and adult issues. His approach to psychotherapy is known for offering positive results to people who have been struggling with significant life-issues and emotional discouragement.
He has found that most often there are two levels of life-issues; the presenting issue and the life-long issue which is usually not the presenting issue. The presenting issue is the issue that brings a person to therapy. The life-long issue that is the reason many people continue to have problems, fears, and feelings of trauma outside of psychotherapy. These issues are from one’s past and may include a history of abuse, life-long low self-esteem, family of origin issues, e.g., loss of family connections and abandonment. Regardless of the focus of therapy life-long issues must also be explored and addressed for successful resolution and completion of psychotherapy.Read More
Is coming for therapy a strength or a weakness?
Often people who see me for a consultation have been suffering for some time, have considered therapy, but have postponed this decision because they felt ashamed that they need help.
Shame can be a crippling emotion which frequently interferes with the capacity to have success in work and relationships. Putting words to feelings of shame is a step toward becoming more confident and less inhibited.
Beginning therapy is not a weakness, but a courageous, positive step toward changing repetitive unfulfilling behaviors into a life with more gratification in work, sex, and play.
