About Me

Hi
My name is Jim Maguire. I am a Board- Certified Mental Health Therapist and have a New Jersey issued license as a Professional Counselor. (LPC). I have over 20 years of Counseling experience -working with children, adults and families. In addition to working as a School Counselor and School Psychologist, I also worked as an Alcohol and Drug therapist at a leading Mental Health Hospital in New Jersey.
At this point in time, I am providing services in person and via Telehealth. I understand that it is not easy to recognize the need and to take the step of asking for help. My personal and family experience is such that I fully understand the obstacles faced in seeking help from a professional. Seeking help, I have come to believe, is a sign of strength not weakness.
I do not strictly adhere to any one Therapeutic model. I do like Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychology, Solution Focused Therapy, as well as several other models of therapy. There is not a “one size fits all,” therapy, therefore, I am comfortable in integrating appropriate aspects of many therapeutic models.
Regardless of the model, I am a strong believer that the most important thing in helping others is an empathetic therapeutic alliance. To paraphrase a quote from education: “People don’t care what you know, until they know that you care.”
I look forward to working with you.

I have experience in providing individual and group therapy as well as working in Federal and State Prisons . I have been involved in virtual therapy and I am quite comfortable with various formats.

My educational background includes a BA in Education an MA in Counseling and a Juris Doctorate.

"My therapist has really followed up promptly and with thorough knowledge of my posts. It is clear he cares and is taking the time to go over everything I say. His advice is helping with my anger issues. He has shown compassion and a real understanding of my problems. I feel I am getting good value out of this process. The future is beginning to look more hopeful. I would definitely recommend this online therapy site."

"This CBT online course has helped me put into perspective more lot of things I already had knowledge of. The main take away for me is that I cannot control other peoples behavior but I can act accordingly to cause myself less stress and anxiety and hopefully prevent me from showing "unhealthy" anger.

Thank you!
