James Greenwald

(LPC)

About Me

Hi, I'm James Greenwald, a licensed professional counselor located in Dallas. I have over 10 years of experience working with adolescents and teens as a high school pastor, family reunification counselor, and mental health clinician, with a wide and diverse variety of therapeutic experience working with clients from every background imaginable. My counseling degree came from Dallas Theological Seminary (2012), and I've seen clients in settings including private practice, hospitals, schools, crisis scenarios, and even prison systems. I utilize cutting edge techniques and treatment methods from dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), narrative therapy, family systems, and acceptance and commitment therapy. I’m skilled at wading into real life pain and struggles including conflict patterns, depression, anxiety, anger and irritability, bereavement, self-doubt, directionlessness and indecision, fear and insecurity, and suicidal thinking. I work with teens who are struggling and need support, hope, and a helping hand in becoming self-aware, reflective, discerning their identity, or self-regulatory.

Counseling isn’t a promise of fixing life’s problems, but it is a place to gain skills and intuition to face what the world throws at you with confidence. Therapy provides a safe space for people to confront life and work toward becoming the best, thriving versions of themselves. I invite you to come explore vulnerability and self-acceptance with me - let's figure out how to help you become the best version of yourself together.

I cannot express enough how thankful I am for James. We found him at a very difficult time for our teen that happened to also be the start of the COVID shutdown. Our teen was experiencing panic attacks and heavy anxiety that was almost crippling - I had helped him the best I could but knew he needed more. I have watched my teen grow and become more confident and self-aware using the tools James has given him. He no longer feels helpless or like a victim of his anxiety - he feels empowered and in control. I am so thankful to James for the gift he has given my son and our family.

James is fantastic. He’s really been so helpful as I’m processing some really tough stuff. He’s never once made me feel judged and gives me excellent advice and tools to get better. There’s still lots to be done, but I’m thankful for his help.

Amazing counselor, so glad I got him as my first match. Does a really good job of listening and helping me work through my problems in ways that I wouldn’t have thought on on my own. I’ve been through a lot of counselors in my lifetime & I’ve never connected with another like Mr.Greenwald. 10/10 recommended!
