James Barrett, PhD

Assessment, Psychotherapy and Consultation

Dr. Barrett specializes in helping boys, teens, and young men who may be struggling with:

  • Getting in trouble at home or in school
  • Poor grades
  • Feeling angry or withdrawn
  • Spending too much time on the internet
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Drugs or alcohol
  • Relationship problems

Unfortunately, boys and young men are often ashamed or embarrassed to talk about their feelings and can be very resistant to the idea of seeing a therapist. They need someone who “speaks their language” and can help them feel comfortable and safe talking about themselves. ┬áMy focus is on making therapy relevant and helpful to “regular guys.”
