William J. Lannigan is not currently accepting new clients.
I believe we all need someone to listen empathically to us, see what we can't see, help us understand our behavior and the nature of the situations we are in. Then we can make more informed choices about love and work and become the persons we were always meant to be. I have been that someone for many clients. I've learned about alcohol, drug and nicotine dependence. I've learned about fear, depression and rage that arise from experiences of loss and abuse. Learned about difficult, demanding, dangerous jobs. Learned about trauma and recovery. Recently I've learned that telephone and zoom sessions provide benefits I didn't anticipate
My approach is person-centered. You are in charge of what we talk about. If you think I can be helpful, we work together. Techniques and goals are individualized to the person and situation. Much of my professional experience comes from long service in alcoholism and addiction treatment programs.
I believe that therapy, maybe short term, maybe longer, can be helpful to just about anyone including people who have recovered from addiction. It can add a dimension even for those who are active in 12 Step Programs and who work the steps and practice the principles.
