James J. Crist, Ph.D., CSAC                           Clinical Psychologist

Hello! Welcome to my website!  This site provides information about my practice, my philosophy with regard to counseling and psychotherapy, the self-help books I have written, my teaching activities, and other information about my practice.   

I am the Clinical Director of the Child and Family Counseling Center (CFCC) in Woodbridge, Virginia.  For more information on  CFCC, click here.  

I work with clients of all ages in individual and family therapy.  I also conduct psychological testing, which involves administering intelligence and personality tests to clarify a person's diagnosis and make recommendations for treatment.   

As a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC), I also work with addictive disorders in teenagers and adults.  

I am the author of eight self-help books for children.  I believe that helping kids understand the problems that they face and teaching them skills to deal with their problems can make their lives much better.

From 2003 to 2012, I was an adjunct faculty member at Argosy University.  I give numerous workshops each year, mostly to parent groups, on various topics.  These include Effective Discipline Strategies, Sibling Relationships, Anxiety, and Social Skills.  Click on Podcasts/Talks for more information.
