Kirsten James, LCSW

Kirsten specializes in working with children, adolescents and adults who process and interpret the world a little bit differently than most people. They may be considered "quirky" or "spirited" or they may have an official diagnosis, like ADHD, autism, anxiety or a specific learning difference. Kirsten is a DIR Floortime practitioner and uses play and activity-based therapy in her work with children. She has a passion for supporting parents and incorporates parent coaching into all treatment plans involving children. Kirsten also works with neurodivergent adults, with a special interest in neurodivergent women navigating marriage and parenting. About Kirsten: Kirsten has a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master’s Degree in Social Work with a specialization in children and families from The University of Texas at Arlington. Kirsten began her career working with elders and their families as they navigated physical and mental health challenges and transitioned to supported living environments. She was thrilled to be able to take a break from working when her first child was born and was certain she knew how to be the perfect parent. She was quickly dissuaded from this belief! Her journey to better understand her own children and figure out how to parent them began her journey back into the field she loves - this time assisting families with a different set of life transitions. In addition to providing clinical mental health services to neurodivergent children, adolescents and parents in her private practice, she has the pleasure of working with students and staff at Oak Hill Academy, a school for students with language-based learning differences. Kirsten has been mostly happily married for 22 years and has three children, ages 18, 16 and 11. She has a delightfully neurodivergent household and understands the complexities of raising children with ADHD and Autism. She loves to travel, particularly to areas with gorgeous natural landscapes to hike and explore.
