Announcement icon During these uncertain times I will still be providing counseling services. I will be offering both in office and video/teletherapy sessions
Unfortunately previous negative experiences with counseling can impact one's decision to seek out treatment again. Therapy isn't about walking into a room because of needing to be "fixed". Therapy is a collaborative approach that begin's with me creating a safe, comfortable, and non judgmental environment. I will always recognize the person before the behavior that we are working to change. My hope at the end of each session is to assist with enhancing your strengths to elicit long term change.
In order to assist with the desired change, I will look to implement techniques specific to the individual. I have experience implementing CBT, DBT, Solution Focused, Reality, and Narrative Therapy. I will utilize these approaches in order to address various issues related to anxiety, depression, addiction, self-esteem, anger, relationship issues etc.
I firmly believe the therapeutic relationship is a crucial aspect of treatment. By developing this relationship, we will begin building trust through a strength based, non judgmental approach. My intention in every session is to empower individuals in order to feel confident their desired change will occur by listening with empathy and understanding.

Bill is an excellent therapist well versed in structural family therapy who is able to connect well with both adolescents and adults. We have worked together in family-based mental health services in the past and I have seen his clinical skills and knowledge in action. Highly recommended!
