What a session feels like with me
William values authenticity, comfort and transparency and understands meaningful connection can only occur in these conditions. He has said, “when an individual feels like they are in a clinical, or medical setting, it shows. I try to create an environment where the client knows they are speaking to a clinician but feels they are talking to a close friend. It’s at that intersection, where therapy happens.”
Client Focus and Specializations
Since serving as a Clinical Therapist, William has collaborated with clients, ranging from children to middle-aged adults. He has experience working with individuals experiencing chronic depression and anxiety, members of the LGBTQ+ community, as well as individuals with circumstantial challenges that arise when adjusting to life’s ever-changing tide. Understanding the multitude of roles a person can assume throughout a day, he primarily uses an eclectic approach with his clients.
William utilizes the following evidence-based treatment modalities:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
I look forward to joining you on your journey as you navigate your way through life’s challenges.
