William Darrisaw


About Me

I am a board certified and licensed professional counselor, a board certified-telemental health provider in North Carolina with over 3 years of experience, and a Licensed Ordained Pastor with over 20 years of experience. I have helped clients with a variety of mental health disorders and relationship issues including depression, anger management, anxiety, grief/loss, marital and family, and career challenges. I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma or emotional abuse.
I am a doctoral candidate in counselor education and supervision and have experience as an online graduate instructor for a CACREP accredited mental health counseling program. My passion as a compassionate and empathic professional counselor is to help clients cope, recover, and achieve the quality of life that demonstrates balance, mental health well-being, and a prosperous life experience.

My eclectic therapeutic approach incorporates client-centered therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. The psychotherapeutic approach used with my client’s is designed to help them realize a transformative living experience in three dimensions:

1) Psychological, reflecting changes in a client’s understanding of self;
2) Convictional, reflecting a fundamental change in the client’s belief from the truth that they come to know, and
3) Behavioral, a change in their lifestyle because of the revealed truth through a renewed mind.

My clients have found my counseling style as welcoming, nonjudgmental, and authentic for helping them overcome the presenting issues of concern. I look forward to supporting and helping you with the quality of care that you deserve and expect from a counseling professional.

I am also looking forward to working with you!

LPC #11804 (Expires: 2021-06-30)


Written by A.L. on Nov 01, 2018 after counseling with William for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, self esteem, and career difficulties

He honestly is so amazing. I have only had a few sessions and everytime he teaches me something and I see everything from such a different perspective. I wouldn’t choose any other counselor to be honest!
