We all need help at some point in our lives. Feeling stuck is disorienting and sometimes it takes someone outside of your circumstances to help. Taking the step to reach out and ask for help is courageous, but can be nerve-racking too. Many people simply need a safe place to crash land and unpack some of life's hardships whether it's relationships, parenting, work stress, anxiety or depression.

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.

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.

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.
