About Jim De Maio

Our Mission

I was born and raised on Long Island where I completed my undergraduate studies in philosophy at Stonybrook University (SUNY). I earned a masters degree in 1981 from Wright State in communication skills (Masters in personal counseling).  In 1989 my wife & I founded Life Transitions Inc., a group private practice after the State of Florida certified me as an Addictions Professional. Life Transitions provides chemical dependency and mental health counseling services.  In October of 2013 I established Helping Ministry Inc an independent not for profit..

If you want to develop your relationships then you will find your experience at Helping Ministry rewarding. You may involve spouse, children, co-workers & managers, second marriage partners including the special challenge of bringing children together into a new household. My communication model was designed to help you overcome the fears that might be involved in relating to someone you have strong feelings for.


Jim  DeMaio Books on line editions

 Jesus the Lover, is based on an imagined view of a savior who knew how to end suffering for himself and others.

Helping Not Fixing, was written as a manual in learning the difference between enabling and truly helping others.
