James Macaulay McManus


Hi, I’m James, a NYC-based psychotherapist. As a gay, transgender man, I know what it is like to struggle to find a therapist that understands your experience. I am eager to provide a warm, safe, and engaging space for you to explore what is getting in the way.

I am especially passionate about working with folks who are just coming out or exploring their gender and sexuality, in addition to working with LGBTQIA+ and HIV-affected survivors of violence.

My treatment approach is above all else, trauma-informed, and additionally incorporates Gestalt Therapy. I will orient you to the here and now, while helping you to cultivate a deeper level of awareness in order to uncover patterns that are no longer serving you.
