I am so very pleased being able to work with Dr. Keating. He is the first counselor I have talked with who understands my Catholicism. His skills are a great match for my needs. I value his thoughts and observations and the way he motivates me to change and grow. He has helped me more than any counselor I have had in my life and I am a senior citizen.

Dr Keating is kind to his very marrow. He breaks down large concepts to manageable pieces and makes sure I understand each one. He is a deep well of knowledge but makes me feel safe and he is very approachable. God bless you Dr Keating!

Bill is such a wonderful combination of kind and knowledgeable. Given his robust experience and intellect, he's never short on finding a new way to explain a concept or a new angle to approach a problem. I feel extremely lucky to have been assigned him when I signed up for BetterHelp.
