In my sessions, I like to focus on the entire person: the mind, body, and spirit. I do provide Christian counseling if that is something you are interested in. I offer therapy with individuals, couples, and families and am happy to say that I love the work I do. When you come to my office, you will be able to share the things in your life that you are struggling with and know that what you share will be met with compassion. You will be able to let me know what you would like to talk about during each session and what you would like to get out of therapy.

Accepting New Clients/short wait list. It can feel awful to struggle with crippling anxiety, depression, or the impacts of past trauma & abuse. Maybe it's a rough patch in your life or struggles in a relationship. Maybe you've struggled for so long it just feels the way it will always be. We all need help from time to time with our struggles, whether they are recent issues or long-term mental health challenges. You may not even be sure what the problem is, but you know there is a problem & you want to feel better. You want a non-judgmental, safe, empathetic, and skilled person who can help. I work with individuals (18+), & couples.

My desire has always been to be available, assisting anyone who is hurting. You may be facing a life altering health diagnosis, perhaps an accident, loss of a job, marital problems, an addiction, parenting issues, death of a loved one, caregiving; the list is endless. Perhaps you are wrestling with issues that aren't apparent to anyone else, but they are very real to you. It is easy to feel isolated and alone.

My experience in social work began in hospice and an international placement in India. Upon returning home, I continued to work in hospice, where I encountered end-of-life concerns, depression, anxiety, grief, and loss. I implement a strengths-based, heart-centered, holistic, and spiritual approach that is collaborative and non-judgmental. Guided by a culturally sensitive perspective, I enjoy working with a diverse population. I empower clients to tap into their own creativity to assist in their healing journey. I blend cognitive behavioral therapy with expressive arts to help clients reach their goals.

I love working with a variety of individuals. As a Marriage and Family therapist, I especially enjoy working with people in the context of their family. I believe we are influenced and shaped by past events, relationships, and our upbringing. Therapy is a helpful way to explore those areas we are struggling with and to learn a little bit more about ourselves. By doing this, we can become healthier and happier people.

I am a bilingual Spanish/English mental health counselor who understands that talking about how you really think or feel is not easy, and sometimes can be scary. Opening up to a stranger takes courage, and I know that taking that first step can be difficult. You might doubt that things can get better, that’s why I want to provide you that space where you feel comfortable and where you can be you. Choosing a therapist is not an easy process, I am committed to developing our therapeutic relationship.

Bill has a very straightforward and matter-of-fact approach to psychotherapy and counseling. He describes his approach as "change oriented", believing the client's inherent strengths provide the keys to growth and recovery. Bill recognized the profound role the family plays in mental health. Bill finds working with families especially rewarding. Much of that works includes couple and marriage counseling and youth.

Attempting to cope with a mental health concern is often a lonely and exhausting process. Additionally, pursuing counseling can often be a difficult decision to make, but one that I believe is worthwhile. As a counselor, my role is to help support you through your healing journey and empower you to rediscover your own unique strengths and resources as a means to promote such healing. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental environment for you to share your own unique life story.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
