Get to know Jim
Jim helps clients find solutions for life’s challenges, including adjustment issues, relationships, stress management, depression, grief, and anxiety. His focus areas include men’s issues, failure to launch, career concerns, LGBTQ+ affirming counseling, coming out issues, gender identity issues, and work relationships. Jim uses a humanistic, practical, and action-oriented approach.
Jim previously had a successful corporate career specializing in Human Resource Management. Originally from New York’s Hudson valley, Jim holds a master’s degree in labor relations and human resource management from Michigan State University. Jim lived in Dallas for a prior work assignment, and he liked it so much that he returned to make Dallas his home. Maybe it was his destiny, since many relatives were Texan!
For years, Jim knew that he wanted to apply his life experience to more directly help people create positive change. This insight led Jim to the master’s in clinical mental health counseling program at Tarleton State University, and to Lifeologie. Today, Jim is a master’s level counseling intern who counsels clients at Lifeologie’s Dallas and Fort Worth offices, as well as via telehealth.
Outside work, Jim likes socializing, traveling, and dining out. He and his partner enjoy hosting outdoor parties for friends and family. Jim played competitive rugby for Dallas Diablos RFC for six years, and he still enjoys watching matches. Jim likes everything that moves, such as cars, planes, and trains. He is a loyal fan of Michigan State football.
