About Me

Choosing a therapist can be quite difficult because you want to ensure there is a good fit so you are  comfortable sharing personal information and receiving the assistance you are seeking.  I hope you will allow me the opportunity to meet your goals.  My name is Candace Williams and I have been an  LCSW for over the past 20 years.  I graduated from Columbia University in New York City with a concentration in Health/ Mental Health.  
I am the Director of Clinician Development for a Nationwide psychological company, but I miss working directly with people so this was a wonderful opportunity.  I have extensive experience working with both older and younger adults.   My experience ranges from being a first responder during September 11th to working in nursing homes, private practice companies, hospices, and hospitals. In my private practice, I have addressed many various issues from mental health diagnosis to adjusting to new situations, or talking out a complex decision.  It is really important for me to help get to the root cause of an issue so that we do not just put on a band-aid but, instead, help you solve the issue for good.
I do not practice just one type of therapy because I believe there are bits and pieces that work from each one.  The trick is ensuring I am using a method that works best for you in a timely manner.  A good therapist will meet you where you are and will think outside of the box.  I promise I will ensure we work on your goals that best meet your needs.  I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve you!

Written by F.I. on Jul 29, 2021 after counseling with Candace for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Candace Williams is a patient listener, gentle guide and very knowledgeable counselor. It has been freeing experience.

Written by A.L. on Jul 21, 2021 after counseling with Candace for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, eating disorders, self esteem, and coaching

Candace has a direct and honest approach that I need to be successful in therapy, because I don't believe I would be held accountable or be accountable to myself if I wasn't working with someone who cuts through the fluff and focuses on skills and strategies to reframe and reshape distorted and negative thinking. She remembers details about my life and is able to connect all the dots, despite how much information I've given her. I can feel my life getting easier to navigate and see progress. I look forward to continuing to dedicate my time and effort to a better life.

Candace is wonderful to talk to. She is very educated with a wide range of knowledge and real world experience.

I have got more from one session with Candace than I have from months of therapy with a different therapist! My old one used to just sit and nod while I talked and cried, Candace gives me tips that can help with things like getting better sleep and not only acknowledges and validates my feelings but also helps me to identify the route cause and address it.
My only regret is I didn’t try BetterHelp sooner!

Candace has been really in tune to my areas of need and had consistently made herself readily available. She has helped work through life events, always following up. Highly recommend
