About

Hi! I’m Bill, aka Rev. Dr. William G. Ressl, LCSW... Puzzled about life? Relationships filled with anxiety and stress? Work got you fed up? Uncertain about the future? Facing a life transition – grief, loss, aging? Time to explore new options? Not sure where to begin? Let’s take the first steps together to enhance well-being by minimizing anxiety and stress in your life and relationships. We’ll look systematically at relationships – family, friends, and work. Explore emotional patterns and the part you play in them. The goal: leave my office feeling less anxious than when you arrived, think more clearly, focus on what you can do.
I offer a confidential, comfortable place to think, explore concerns, and make plans to move toward the changes you want. Gain new insights through a larger theoretical perspective based on your interests and needs. Expert in life cycle transitions, Bowen family systems theory, resilience, aging, and spirituality. Trained by Dr. Robert Moore Jungian Analyst.
Come, let’s talk. Together we’ll explore options and begin to create a new reality. I’m dedicated to helping folks, just like you, who wish to live a hope-filled, meaning-filled resilient life. I enjoy working with creatives, artists, musicians, college students, and those returning to school later in life. Interested in women’s and men’s issues. LGBT+ ally.
