My Approach to Helping
Jim Madden is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), at Purple Flowers 365 Counseling Services. Jim's area of expertise includes helping those who struggle with addiction, and anxiety. Jim has been involved in the recovery community for over 34 years. Through his experience and compassion Jim breaks down the many barriers to sobriety; as he works with individuals and families to embrace recovery. Jim believes if an individual has suffered for more than 30 days with restlessness, fatigue, irritability, feelings of worthlessness, strained relationships, sleep issues, and excessive guilt - then maybe it's time to reach out for help
When people have a "sense of purpose," and a strong connection with others, life has meaning. When individuals do not, life can feel like a trudge. For most of us stumbling forward is often the norm, not the exception. When individuals believe, life will always be about rolling the boulder up hill, they have become desensitized to their own emotional pain
Most of us have been strong for too long, and desperately need an alternative lens to see through - or new narrative to embrace. As trained Licensed Professional Counselors we can be that useful third party; who is not only empathetic, and non-judgmental, but honest and objective.
