Dr. James Welch


About Me

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Florida with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist, clinical consultant and executive coach. I am also a trainer and provide training in an evidenced based model for clinicians across the country. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I received my graduate education at CBN/Regent University in Virginia Beach.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach utilizes Neuro-Linguistic Programming , Motivational Interviewing and Brief Solution Focused models. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by K.A. on Feb 13, 2021 after counseling with James for 2 weeks

I know that God matched me up with Dr. Welch and I am very thankful for that. We had our third session today and already I am very comfortable talking with him and have received excellent counsel and advice from him. I was reluctant to do this kind of counseling but I am so very glad I did and I recommend it to anyone facing some struggles- especially during this time with lots of isolation. If you are reading this right now, maybe God is answering your prayer. God bless you!!
