James Neubauer, tLMFT

 

My philosophy is that life is a unique journey and that the expert on that journey is you. On the journey of life, sometimes, there are blocks in the road with seemingly no way around them. My goal is to provide an open and accepting space where all people feel heard and accepted throughout the therapeutic experience. I offer a brave space for individuals who belong to the LGBTQ+ community seeking therapy and am committed to acceptance and mutual respect.

I approach your goals and therapy in a collaborative process where you feel like the session is yours, because it is. I use Narrative Therapy and Internal Family Systems as ways to approach problems and places where you get stuck. Through these approaches, I see you as an expert, and I come from a strength-based approach.

You may be asking yourself, “What is Internal Family Systems?” Internal Family Systems (IFS) takes the approach of our inner world and talks about parts. Everyone quickly understands “parts” as things that happen in our day to day life.  For example, “A part of me wants toast, but another part of me is on a diet eliminating carbs.” At times our parts can take on roles that get in the way of us being fully in our Self. My purpose in this work is to be a facilitator for you to discover your parts, work with them, and help them trust the core Self inside all of us that knows what to do to help us and our parts get unstuck.

My clinical interests include working with couples and partnerships, individuals, teenagers, and LGBTQ+. I am also interested in working with trauma, anxiety, and depression.
