Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor
I am a licensed therapist in both Wyoming and Montana. I have Masters’ degrees in both Marriage and Family Therapy and Divinity, from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary.
Where has Jim worked?
As a licensed therapist, I’ve provided a lot of individual, marriage, family, and group therapy/counseling nationwide. I’ve worked in rural Kansas and Alaska and also the big cities of San Diego and San Antonio. I have over a quarter of a century of experience (I don’t feel that old!!), and over 18 of those years have been spent working extensively with the military and their families as a chaplain and war veteran. My experiences have included domestic and foreign hospitals and their trauma rooms, community clinics, private practices, and religious institutions. I have specific expertise in post-deployment readjustment and healing, depression, divorce, PTSD, sexual trauma recovery, and I love doing marital counseling, and family therapy.
Where are you now?
My family and I moved to Cheyenne, WY when I was stationed at F.E. Warren AFB as an active duty Chaplain. We liked Cheyenne and decided to stay after I transitioned out of active duty service. I decided to transfer to the Wyoming Air National Guard.
Despite our love of Cheyenne, a wonderful chaplain ministry opportunity became available in my wife’s hometown in Montana, and we decided to move. Even so, I love my work with Mind Spa and therefore I continue to work in a small branch office in Helena. I remain a Chaplain for the Wyoming Air National Guard and am a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of Montana.
About Jim’s Family
I met my wife in Springfield, Missouri and we got married in Helena, Montana. We have been happily married for over 20 years. We have three very active children: My son, Mathias, was born in Abilene, Texas, my daughter, Michaila, was born in China- we adopted her when she was 10 1/2 weeks old and brought her back to our home in the United States and my youngest daughter, Kinsey, was born in San Antonio, Texas.
I enjoy working with people, in helping them heal, grow, and have an enriching life. I’d love to come up beside you in whatever life situation you find yourself in and be your advocate. Give us a call and let’s set up a time to meet!
