Living more fully

I am James Guay. Welcome to my West Hollywood Psychotherapy private practice website.
    • Are you feeling stressed, lonely or frustrated with your life?
    • Disappointed that success doesn’t feel like you wanted it to?
    • Having reoccurring relationship problems?
    • Stuck with habitual patterns and addictions?

Psychotherapy, with the right therapist, can more quickly guide you to feel authentically engaged in your life. Learning how to be in better alignment with who YOU are at your core can enhance creativity, aliveness and connections with others. Shedding old ways of coping that no longer serve you, opens you up to embrace a new way of being, today.


Located on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, I also provide Gay Affirmative Psychotherapy for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. This gay psychotherapy acknowledges and explores societal influences of homophobia, racism and sexism on the individual and families.  Regardless of your sexual orientation or gender identity, individual and couples counseling can be a process of reconnecting you to the core of who you are, honoring that place, and living life more fully.


I invite you to contact me to schedule an appointment for this important journey.
