James Berrian

James Berrian is a pre-licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. He completed his Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Trevecca Nazarene University. Prior to counseling, James was a full-time touring artist and studio singer. He toured extensively throughout the U.S. and has firsthand experience with the music and entertainment industry. Because of this background, James enjoys working with members of the creative community to assist with the unique challenges presented by a career in the entertainment industry.

I had the pleasure of supervising James during his clinical internship of his Master’s program. James has so many qualities that make him a great therapist. His humor, openness, sincerity and passion allow him to show up and hold space in a very meaningful way for his clients. I’m grateful to have him on our team!
