James MacMillan graduated from the Université de Moncton in 2001 and became a licensed psychologist in New Brunswick in 2006.

His career began in 1999 at the Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) in Moncton, where he worked for the next three years (1999-2001) on both the adult short-term and adult long-term intervention teams. He then worked from 2001-2002 at the Bathurst Regional Hospital, where he provided psychological assessment and intervention to an inpatient/outpatient population from the adult psychiatric unit and the medical units. Following this, James returned to Moncton to work at the CMHC in 2002 where he works with children, adolescents, and their families. In addition, from 2002-2007 James worked with the Clinic of Applied Psychology one day a week and provided psychotherapeutic services to children, adolescents, and adults.

James continues to work full-time at the CMHC and rejoined the Clinic of Applied Psychology on a part-time basis in early 2014, in which he sees clients on Monday evenings only.
