James D’Aconti, LCSW, Qualified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Teacher
My Approach
They say people don’t change, I don’t believe that to be true.  In fact, I believe we can change and grow every day if we are open to it. My hope is that I can help you change your life, if that is your goal. Together, in session, we can process obstacles in your life and collaboratively find ways to help you achieve your goals.  Maybe your goal is to learn to accept yourself.  Maybe your goal is to reduce stress or anxiety.  Your goal is my goal.  I want to help you become the person you wish to become.
My approach to therapy is a blend of mindfulness informed, psycho-dynamic and cognitive behavioral psychotherapy.  I am traditionally trained in psycho-dynamic psychotherapy and have extensive training in mindfulness based practices.  You can read more about me and my formal training in mindfulness by reading my about me page.  Also, if you want to get to know me a little more first, you can check out my podcast or my blog.
