James Rusk, LCSW-R
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered, Psychotherapist
Hi, I’m James. I’ve worked as a psychotherapist developing positive client relationships since 2005.
Helping you reduce anxiety levels with breathwork and improve physical health with mindfulness and meditation techniques.
I’ve learned cognitive-behavioral treatments to assist you with overcoming addiction and anger management. And (how to) provide in-depth talk and mental health therapy for children, adolescents, adults, and families.
At Rusk Therapy, each relationship between therapist and patient is individual and implements a variety of treatments. Once a course of action is agreed upon, we’ll approach therapy by incorporating the whole mind-body approach.
That includes the relationship between mental, emotional, and physical health, along with incorporating nutrition, supplements, and exercise. Working together, you can create an improved lifestyle that supports your best life.
The process of a successful therapeutic relationship depends on your effort and our compatibility, along with clear boundaries and feeling safe.
I believe it’s essential to find the right therapist, and doing this takes a phone call, a first session, or a few sessions. I welcome you to schedule a complimentary call to explore a possible therapeutic relationship.
