Dr. Eric Williams

(PhD, LPCS, LMFT)

About Me

I fulfill the roles of husband, father, U.S. Army Veteran, and professional counselor to name a few. Credentialed as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in NC and as a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), I believe that everyone is juggling multiple roles daily that may affect their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual health. Conversely, those four previously mentioned areas of health influence the multiple roles we fulfill. Think of it as a bit of an ongoing cycle. If this sounds like you, subscribe to work with me.

My counseling style is nonjudgmental, respectful, compassionate, and empathetic. I integrate brief solution-focused therapy as well as rational-emotive therapy. When possible, I like to infuse humor into my sessions. With over 12 years counseling experience, I have worked with military service members and their families, “at-risk” youth, couples and families, and individuals marginalized in today’s society. I have served individuals and families with a variety of diagnoses to include, depression, anxiety, autism, and child/adolescent behavioral disorders. If you or someone close to you is experiencing any persistent thoughts, feelings, or behaviors that are having a negative impact on your life, consider subscribing to work with me.

I look forward to partnering with you as you pursue an enhanced relationship with yourself and others!

Dr. Williams has been very helpful! He is understanding and nonjudgmental. He responds quickly and is always there with advice or suggestions to help. I was weary about talking with a counselor, but Dr. Williams is an amazing counselor, and it has been a great experience!

Eric Williams is an awesome counselor. I feel a connection with him (which is important) and he manages to reach me on my level. I feel very confident that I can reach out to him whenever I need to talk and he routinely checks in with me if I don't.

I would like to say that I have been doing a session with Eric and I just started but I am already extremely very happy on how he takes on the problems I have and find the best possible solution out of it. After having felt bad for a very long time I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and I’m already feeling better with the way he approches the issues. After having been on BetterHelp for a while before I had another counselor appointed to me which wasn’t good and he was lazy I would say as I didn’t get anything out of him but i then decided that I would change counselor and i made the decision to choose Eric and it was the best choice I ever made. Of course my days with him is not over yet and I hope that I can come back again to write another review at the finished of the therapy with him. But for now I’m keeping him and I’m ready to work with him to get better and better. I would gladly recommend him if anyone need a good counselor that really listens to your problems and care for real, your man is Eric. I’m glad I have found you. We will of course work together as from now on.

I have a feeling that Eric is always there to help. Although we live on different continents with a decent time difference, Eric’s time management is just perfect. His ability to immediately embrace the situation and understand the problem makes him a uniquely helpful counsellor. His responses are literally remedies to my problems! After couple months of counseling I can observe my own progress which is unbelievable!!! Thousand thanks to Eric Williams!

Eric is very responsive and patient. He helped me understand the root of my problems and gave me tips on how to process them. I will certainly ask for his help again.

I'm very thankful for all the counselling, help and support that Eric has given me during my time on Better help. He really listened to my issues, helped me work through them and constantly reflected a very positive tone even through a message box. I highly recommend Eric for people looking to work out their stubborn knots in life.

Eric came into my life during a time of crisis. Not only did he provide a listening ear, but he provided tangible tools that I can actively use. I appreciate his helpful messages and am grateful for him being a supporter during a very difficult time. Keep up the great work!

Written by Z.Y. on Sep 11, 2017 after counseling with Eric for 1 month on issues concerning relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, parenting, self esteem, and career

Eric has been a wonderful addition to my support system. He listens, tell me what I need to hear rather than what I want to hear. He is very timely and does more than just give me advice, he gives my tools and exercises that help with remembering how to implement the things that I know I need to change in my communication and just well being.

I recommend him because he is very good at what he does and appears to also be passionate about it because he goes over and beyond!

Thanks Eric!

So glad I gave BetterHelp a chance and was paired with Eric. He is understanding and genuine. We are on the right track to getting things together and I am very happy to have someone like Eric who really listens, and offers support. He not only offers emotional support but also helps me come up with logical solutions to the situations. I highly recommend Eric for anyone.
