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 serve women in the Cedar Valley. We have often accomplished and experienced a lot in our lives by the time we seek counseling. All of us have periods where we struggle; perhaps we can't sleep, we are stressed to the breaking point and in spite of having people around us, we may feel lonely or depressed. If this is you, you aren't alone.

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.

I work with ages 3 through adulthood: individuals, couples, and families. I have worked with individuals who have: depression, anxiety, Bipolar, grief from any type of loss, ADHD, Autism, stress, anger, divorce, and those who need a third party to talk to without judgement. I am trained in Adlerian Play Therapy for children and adults to reach beyond traditional talk therapy for self-expression/processing when words are hard to find. It is proven that children say much more in play than they have the words for.

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.

What type of Waterloo mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Waterloo?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
