About Us
Love and Grace Counseling desires to provide clients with a sense of hope and a deeper understanding of themselves and their struggles, with a focus on assisting the client with developing solution-oriented skills.


James Floyd, MA, LPC

I did not expect to be a counselor, getting a BBA from Texas A&M and working in retail management for 9 years. Through this and other experiences, I recognized that I had a gifting and desire to help people. This led me to complete a Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary and subsequently completing my Professional Counselor license.

My hope for every client is that through our work together, you would be able to restore and increase hope through a rooted concept of who you are as an image-bearer of God and an understanding of who your fears, passions, and past have told you that you are.

I work to integrate true understandings of the human mind and body from various psychological theories and methods with a Christian understanding of the whole self. The goal is to help clients overcome life burdens and mental disorders. I have worked with clients ranging from high school to retirement age, individuals and families, experiencing various issues including grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, severe anger, relationship conflict, family dynamics, and boundary setting.

I look forward to the opportunity to help you recognize what has created unhelpful patterns in your life and see you find freedom from them.

Hope Changes Everything! Together we will find the unique path to realignment in knowing you were already fearfully and wonderfully made. My therapeutic modality integrates a holistic, strength-based approach while utilizing body awareness, EMDR, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. All of which is a fancy way to say that I want to walk with you, right where you are, just as He made you.

I am EMDR trained and specialize in trauma, depression, anxiety, coping skills, self-esteem building, and seasons of transition. I have a decade of substance abuse counseling exposure, and it is still one of my passions. My goal is to help you quiet the world, hear what He has planned for you, and build worth in walking that unique path out.

I seek to offer a genuine, heartfelt experience where you feel accepted and valued. Goals will be made collaboratively as I hope to serve your needs for full restoration.

Life can be very demanding and challenging. It is my privilege to provide a safe and welcoming place for you to share life concerns and challenges. I truly believe everyone has a story to tell. Being heard and understood is part of the healing process.

I received a Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Counseling from Asian Theological Seminary in the Philippines. I also obtained a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Tarleton State University.

I have experience working with individuals and couples on anxiety, depression, grief, loss, trauma, perfectionism, self-image, self-esteem, burnout, boundaries, and addiction. I am a certified facilitator of Prepare-Enrich as well. I can provide counseling both in Mandarin and English.
