About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of New York. I operate from several treatment including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy and Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). I Received my Masters Degree in Clinical Counseling and chose to obtain an additional specialty in Sexual Orientation. I am able to work with individuals and couples/relationships both straight and LGBTQ as well as monogamous and polyamorous for a wide range of emotional and behavioral concerns. I currently work in an agency that specializes in the recovery model, which helps our patients set goals for their own lives and functioning and then systematically remove barriers to those barriers that are related to mental health impairment. I endorse this philosophy.

Philosophically I believe that people are not defined by their mental illness or diagnosis and I work hard to help those I work with find the freedom they seek to have the life they want. I have experience working with individuals who suffer from depression, Anxiety and phobias, addiction/substance abuse, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders, trauma, personality disorders, recovering from infidelity, sexual functioning concerns (all gender identifications) as well as those considering gender reassignment surgery.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Demire Coffin-Williams. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I've worked in mental health for 15 years as a doctor: I thought Demire might be intimidated, but I don't get that sense at all. I feel like there's always something to learn, like there's more guidance available as soon as I am ready for it. It's been a great experience!

Honestly, what I appreciate about Demire, is the simple fact he doesn’t necessarily give me the healthier perspective or solution just yet. He allows me to think and figure things out, and then add his insight so I can keep and maintain the connection

Demire is great. It is hard getting me to come out of my shell- but I find Demire very easy to talk to. I'm looking forward to my next session.

Mr Demire helped me massively in just 3 sessions. He's patient, asks questions that make you think, and really focuses on the problems you're having. It's a pity that I can't continue my sessions with him, however due to work commitments I have to stop for a while. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their mental health.

I don’t know if I can truly express how much working with Demire has meant to me. Talking to him has helped me develop ways of dealing with life in ways I never thought I could. I’m much more present in the moment (not 100%, but more). He’s great 11/10.

Demire is an excellent therapist who helps me achieve my goals in a ways that are feasible and effective. He has helped me get through a difficult time in my life and he is currently helping me with other areas of my life that I had found challenging due to some core beliefs. ACT has been an effective approach for me; it provides an insightful way of framing suffering such that I am able to live my life without having to feel that I need to combat my thoughts first.
