Who Am I?
I'm Jim McFarland
I know what anxiety and panic feel like.  And I know what depression feels like. 

I know the heart pounding, and feeling like you can't breathe. I know the "crazy," and the fear, and the dread. The hopeless/helpless feeling...and all the negative thoughts.

When I was 20 years old, working hard in my second year of college, Panic and Anxiety hijacked my life.

I didn't know what to do. I was lost and terrified. And I was falling apart.

The harder I tried to stop all the anxiety and worry, and figure out what was happening to me, the worse it got. 

I thought I was going crazy or worse, might die.

I was scared, and ashamed, and after a while I felt like a failure because I couldn't do the things I wanted to do. 

I tried my best to hold it together for my family but I felt like no one understood what I was going through.

Devastated, I left college. And then, depression set in...I felt like I had lost everything. I was hopeless. And the panic and anxiety were relentless...

I'll Help You Find The Answers
One day I was reading a self-help book on anxiety and depression. By this time, I felt like I was trapped by it. I was looking everywhere for answers.

As I was reading one day, it became crystal clear to me. I knew what I had to do! 

I couldn't keep running from the anxiety or the depression, I had to face it. And I had to reach out to a real anxiety expert to teach me how. 

Inside I felt a lot of self-doubt...I thought maybe this could work, but I was so scared and thought something was definitely wrong with me.

I almost didn't make the call.   I was really scared, and I thought that this probably wouldn't work for me...but I did it anyway.

I made the call.

And that split-second decision changed my life forever.  That call was the first step to a new life, and getting the relief I was desperate for!

  • ​I learned new tools that calmed the anxiety and fear
  • ​Learned how relieve the depression and the sad feelings
  • Learned how to stop all the worry and obsessing
  • Learned how to stop the panic
  • Started doing things I was too afraid to do because of the anxiety
  • Realized I was actually normal
  • I learned to love myself
I was finally empowered and I started to beat it. 

I started going out and doing the things I couldn’t do before. The panic, the constant fear and the worrying all started to go away! I learned how to stop overthinking.  The depression began to fade away.

I learned how strong I was. Stronger than I ever believed. My life definitely changed because of the anxiety, but I ended up seeing it had changed in beautiful ways.

And I am so thankful I took that leap of faith and reached out for help.

Now I feel it's my calling and passion to help people that feel as anxious and depressed as I once felt!

What People Are Saying
"I have always been somewhat of an anxious person, but it has never got in the way of my normal happy outgoing outlook on life. That changed earlier this year when I was unable to deal with a situation and anxiety took me down a road untraveled. Anxiety began to affect me in many negative ways, mentally and physically and I knew that I needed help. I reached out to Jim and had our first consultation several months ago. I shared the situation with Jim, which was not a comfortable position for me, but Jim listened carefully and made an assessment...I think that is the single key factor that set me on the road to recovery; Jim made me feel like while I was broken at the moment, I was repairable. I struggled through the next few weeks, because I still was not able to handle the anxiety yet. We agreed that I needed Jim’s help, along with some medication to get me in a better place to handle my situation. Jim not only discussed possible medicinal options with me, but he also consulted with my primary care doctor to determine a course of action. As the medication began helping me, Jim was also providing tools to help cope with my feelings. After hitting a low physical point early in my recovery process, I was able to use these tools to regain some control of my life. Jim was always available for me during this difficult time, not just during our sessions, but he made me feel like I could reach out to him anytime if needed. As I began to feel better, Jim was even more supportive and was nothing but encouraging and truly happy for me. I clearly remember his smiles and words of encouragement which were more helpful than I realized, until after the fact. I will close by saying that Jim was a tremendous asset for me to help me navigate through an unknown and frightening situation. We met about 7 times over the course of 3 months, and I am happy to say that I am off the medication and once again living my life again, better than before. Thank you Jim for being there and never once making me feel like this situation could not be fixed!"

"4 years ago, I moved to the area to live with my parents. In short, I was going through the worst period of my life, suffering from symptoms of severe Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Bipolar. I was close to non-functional, and desperately in need of help. I was, and remain, so incredibly fortunate to have found the help of a true healer in Jim. He has provided me masterful teachings of mindfulness, meditation and uses a versatile skill-set of CBT, NLP, and other modern mental health sciences in our sessions to great effect. Jim has been there each step of the way assisting in my recovery and helping me overcome the insurmountable obstacles that were preventing me from having a stable, happy and full life experience, something I once deeply believed I would never have for myself. Through our 4 year therapist/client relationship, Jim has continued to be an endless source of knowledge and support. He has helped me regain control of my life ... If you are searching for a therapist and read this, I honestly could not recommend the services of Jim McFarland enough."

"My kids have been seeing Jim for a few years. One child has anxiety and the other, depression. His services include working with the parents half of the time, and with the children the other half. He teaches approaches for not just dealing with children's issues, but for how to adjust our own approach as parents. I know I brought my own baggage from my own trauma into raising my kids. I also know the hardships they've faced, combined with poor coping skills can lead to less than ideal outcomes. Jim bridges that gap for us. His services are truly indispensable, and we're deeply thankful."

"What an amazing experience my family has had with Mr. Jim! He has helped us on our journey being a true blessing in our lives! Mr. Jim has connected with our teenage son and helped us navigate the chaos of teenage hood and parenting! We recommend him highly! Our lives have and continue to change because of his guidance, care, compassion, and professionalism. He genuinely cares for his clients and their families."

-Female, age 47
“Before I started coming to see Jim, I was really a very passive person, and people would walk all over me. My Panic Attacks and anxiety attacks were really, really bad. School was not my favorite thing to do. And I kind of hated being there, and I didn't like the people I went to school with...And then when I started seeing Jim, he taught me ways to cope with my anxiety, ways to deal with conflict and more steps on working on myself, so I wouldn't be sad. It actually helped me be happier. And now, I'm not passive anymore, I am more in control, I speak my mind. My panic attacks got better and I feel more happy."

He is very patient and willing to be of help to get you in a healthy place!! Thank you, Mr. Jim for all that you do!! "

"Around age 19, I'd tried some therapists over a couple years hoping to find the right fit for my trauma-based anxiety issues, among other related issues like ADD and depression. I'm a fairly private person and struggle horrendously with communicating emotions / anything verbal, so that issue paired with the often uncomfortably dry and intensely clinical approaches I experienced with my first therapists were rough - especially considering I was usually prescribed medicine after 10 minutes’ discussion of my (then) mild to moderate anxiety before even vaguely discussing the possibility of working through and understanding my trauma-based problems.
I found Jim McFarland 2 years ago, and I never knew how productive, professionally warm, and organic therapy could be. He's mastered the art of listening and addressing anything head-on while still being fluid enough to use whatever approach is needed, and helping me feel comfortable enough to get out of my comfort zone step by step to make progress with each issue. Outside of sessions, he’s provided me with many resources for me to help myself in any situation, and he actually explains how the mind and body works in context to my issues based off the obviously extensive amount of professional research he’s done. I and the people around me have continually noticed a difference in how I’m able to deal with things on a daily basis, and I can’t recommend this place enough to anyone with symptoms like mine or otherwise- it’s been a major (if not key) improvement on my quality of life.
