Dr. James Davison, Jr., Ph.D.
Psychologist, Founder & CEO

Dr. James Davison, Jr. is the founder of Puget Sound Family Services in Lakewood, Washington. He is a licensed, African American psychologist and university professor. He has taught at Seattle University, the University of Utah, and North Park College in Chicago and has written for numerous publications.
He is the author of several published books, including: Prisoners of Our Past, and Sweet Release. He is currently working on his new book: Paid in Full. His overall passion is to empower his clients, students, and readers in all aspects of realizing their innate quality of being worthy and embracing the social responsibility that goes with it, without any excuses.
While his main focus is in devoting full attention to private practice and consultation, he does actively support the American Cancer Society and his granddaughters’ tenacious demand for popsicles when they come to visit.
Originally from Philadelphia, he has also lived in Chicago and now currently resides in the Seattle area. However, he has yet to be convinced that $4.95 is a fair price for an iced mocha–no thanks, he’ll stick to his Yoo-hoo’s.
