James Alan McCracken, LCSW, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Durham, NC


I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and Supervisor in solo practice in Durham, NC. My approach to couple therapy is based on the most current science available about long term romantic relationships (Gottman's research) and couple therapy (Emotionally Focused Therapy). I provide a couple therapy experience that is validating, non-blaming, interactive and quickly addresses what matters most to help couples restore stability and satisfaction, improve the accessibility, responsive and engagement in the relationship, and protect the relationship from vulnerabilities.
