Bill is terrific. I always feel like he’s actively listening and it’s clear he retains things I’ve said in previous sessions. Very pleasant to talk to which makes the process much more enjoyable. Thank you Bill.

Bill is as polite as he is enlightening.
He is a skilled therapist that nurtures personal growth and posesses a great many talents - which have allowed me to truly explore a painful past and work towards future solutions. Great guy, top lad, 11/10 "and all that jazz".
