James DeBlois, LICSW
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker dedicated to helping adults pursue personal growth in a safe and nurturing environment with a focus on respecting one’s individuality and sense of self through a person-centered and strength-based approach. My goal is to create a relaxed and flexible approach to address your concerns and assist you with respect, dignity, compassion and empathy. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Supportive Therapy and Mindfulness techniques to assist those struggling with trauma, substance use, anxiety and depression and the challenges those experiences create. I believe people are resilient and have the ability to make positive, lasting change and find a sense of happiness, balance and fulfillment in their lives. I have experience working in education and forensic and community mental health programs providing consultation, psychotherapy and advocacy to adults while supporting families whose loved ones struggle with their mental health. I continue to engage in on-going professional development in the areas of anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma and life adjustments to better assist the individuals under my care.
I offer telehealth appointments Monday through Thursday as well as limited in person appointments on Mondays in our Norfolk office. Please go to our “Make an Appointment” page to check my availability.
