Jewel James, Ph.D.

Dr. James received her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education.

She prefers psychodynamic therapies as they focus on the process of treatment more than its goals.

"The most painful lessons of a person's history may be the ones that teach him he can change; and that he does have choices."


Why it's difficult to deal with life crisis and changes on your own

Embarking on the path of major life changes and transitions alone can be an intricate journey, often laden with uncertainties and emotional upheavals. Attempting to navigate these challenges independently may seem like an insurmountable task. Self-help, while commendable, can encounter limitations when facing the complex tapestry of emotions tied to divorce, loss, parenthood, or career shifts.
Psychotherapy offers a supportive framework where individuals can delve into the intricacies of their experiences. Our therapists at Mind In Motion recognize the courage it takes to seek assistance and understand that self-discovery is a collaborative process. In therapy, clients gain insights into their coping mechanisms, develop resilience, and acquire tools to manage the emotional nuances of life changes. While self-help strategies can provide temporary relief, the personalized guidance of a therapist facilitates a deeper understanding of one’s emotions and behaviors. It’s an opportunity for individuals to actively engage in their healing journey, supported by a trained professional who is dedicated to fostering understanding, acceptance, and resilience.
