Practice Information
Welcome. My name is Jim Garrett. I'm a licensed clinical professional counselor and psychotherapist, and I provide counseling and psychotherapy services for individuals and couples. To make it easier for you to get started, I offer a free phone consultation.

There are lots of very good reasons for people to seek the help of a counselor or therapist. Individual counseling and individual psychotherapy can often be very helpful for people feeling sad, worried, frustrated, angry, confused, stressed, or simply feeling down on themselves. Marriage counseling and couples counseling can often be very helpful for people experiencing difficulties in important relationships or simply feeling that the relationship is not meeting their needs. And these are just a few of the concerns that a therapist can help with.

Maybe one of these issues is what brought you here, or maybe you're here out of concern for a family member or friend who could benefit from the help of a therapist. Or maybe your reason for being here is entirely different. Whatever it is, I can assure you that you are in good company. Lots of people call therapists every day for help with a wide range of concerns.

If you'd like to give me a call, I'll be more than happy to talk with you.

Bio:
You'll notice that my background is a little different from that of most people in my profession. I haven't always been a clinical professional counselor and psychotherapist. In fact, I spent the first twenty years of my professional life in the business world, primarily in business consulting, working with a variety of clients all over the country. During those years I experienced a lot - both professionally and personally - that helped prepare me for what I do now.

Along the way, my experiences led me to make a number of important changes, including the decision to devote the second half of my professional life to helping people on a personal level in my local community. Since 1999 I have devoted myself to the study and practice of counseling and psychotherapy.

And now, with a few bruises and scars, I've been rewarded with arrival at a very satisfying point in my life. I am in private practice near my home, (the easiest commute I've ever had) providing counseling and psychotherapy services for individuals and couples. I have lived in the Barrington area since 1992, and plan to remain here for the balance of my life.
