James (Jim) Grinnell received his Master’s degree in Family Relations from Oklahoma State University. He is a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist as well as a Certified Sex Therapist. As a past president of the Tulsa chapter of the Christian Association for Psychological Studies, Mr. Grinnell focuses on adult counseling, marriage issues, marriage communication, affair recovery, and sexual issues.
Jim believes our sexuality is incredibly complex. His greatest distinctive is that he is formally trained as a Certified Sex Addiction Specialist and Certified Sex Therapist. Where do people go with their sexual struggles and sexual brokenness? Often our faith communities are not a safe place to make these issues known, and he especially enjoys and feel gifted in helping married persons reconnect after their relationship has broken down, or an affair has occurred, sexual addiction is active, or there are physical barriers keeping couples from coming together. He aims to cut through all the popular literature and self-help books, and provide best practice recovery and caring marital therapy.
Jim's specialties include:
- Pornography and Sexual Addiction Recovery
- Affair Recovery
- Marital Issues Resolution
- Sex Therapy
- Communication Skills Training
While some see going to a counselor as a weakness, he sees it as a great strength. We all face times in our lives where an objective third party, mentor, minister, coach or therapist can help. For couples struggling with sexual dysfunctions, frequency of intercourse differences, painful intercourse and desire issues, there are real answers.

We have experienced counseling for our son before, but no one has been able to engage our son the way Jim Grinnell has. Through Jim’s sincere efforts to hear us, his compassion and patience in allowing us to work through our issues, and his wise counsel, we are making clear progress. Even our 16 year old son commented that Jim is a good counselor – “He really listens to me and he helps me find answers to my problems.” I would recommend, and have recommended, Jim to other families.Trish Boone
