Jim Hale, MS, LPC, LADC-MH

I have over 17 years of experience working with people with all kinds of concerns as a licensed professional counselor and a licensed alcohol and drug counselor. 


What I've come to learn most from my clients is that I'm not an expert on your life. You know your life better than I ever could. Rather than telling you what you should or shouldn't do, I get the honor of walking with you for a short time, side by side, on your life journey. What a privilege for me! Together, we will figure out those temporary life bumps and how you can best fix them.

My Practice Story


The art of holistic practice addresses the whole person - body, mind, and spirit. My practice integrates conventional and alternative therapies to promote optimal mental and physical health. Each client is assessed during our initial meeting to determine additional areas that might need to explored. 


What I can assure you of in my practice is that it is a no frills, comes with lots of honesty, and old fashioned common sense. All in all, a pretty good combination for change.


Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.  My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating.  Raise your expectations!

Are long life and good life mutually exclusive? 

Apr 21, 2015


Do we sacrifice quality of life for longevity? Or is longevity a gift for a life well-lived?This year, the National Council for Behavioral Health is pleased to host an unlikely duo – Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, Affordable Care Act architect and provocateur, and Dan Buettner, best-selling author and National Geographic Fellow. Emanuel made waves in health care recently when he wrote, “I want to die at 75.” On the other side of the spectrum, Buettner travels the world for Blue Zones, researching habits of the world’s longest-living populations and sharing how to apply those habits to our own lives.
