James Murtha

Are you an athlete looking to conquer the mental hurdles holding you back from peak performance or overcome a devastating injury? Are you a young or middle-aged adult struggling with lifting the weight of depression and anxiety? Perhaps you've fallen out of love with the game that used to be your passion. Look no further – let me help you back on your path to success and well-being.

I'm James, a dedicated mental health therapist and social worker, specializing in the unique intersection of mental health and sports. My passion is helping athletes of all ages, from older teens (15 and up) to young and middle-aged adults, to unlock their full potential in the world of sports. I understand the profound impact that the mental game has on your athletic performance or injury recovery, and vice versa; and I'm here to guide you on your journey to success. What sets me apart? Here's why you should choose me as your therapist:

  • Expertise in the Mental Game: I have a deep understanding of the mental challenges athletes face. Whether you're struggling with performance anxiety, self-doubt, or the pressure to excel, I have the experience to help you overcome these obstacles.
  • Tailored Approach: I'm not here to offer one-size-fits-all solutions. I work closely with each client to create a personalized plan that suits your unique needs, goals, and aspirations.
  • Strong Listener and Questioner: My approach is all about understanding you. I'm an exceptional listener, asking the right questions to get to the heart of your issues and help you find the solutions you need.
  • Specialized in Working with Men: I know that men often face unique challenges when it comes to seeking help. I create a safe, non-judgmental space where you can open up and work through your struggles without reservation.
  • Evidence-Based CBT: My primary modality is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a proven approach that equips you with the tools to challenge and change negative thought patterns, ultimately improving your mental health and performance.
  • Online Convenience: In today's fast-paced world, I offer the convenience of telehealth therapy. You can access my services from the comfort of your own space, making it easier to fit therapy into your busy schedule.

Your journey to mental strength and athletic success begins right here. Together, we'll unlock your true potential, overcome obstacles, and build a brighter future.

Don't let performance anxiety, depression, or burnout hold you back any longer. Take the first step towards a better, more empowered you. Contact me today to schedule a consultation and start getting you back toward where you want to be.
