William Stoner


About me

My name is Bill Stoner. I'm from Milwaukee Wisconsin and married for many years with two adult children.
I am a licensed Mental Health and Substance Dependency professional with more than 20 years of Psychotherapy and Substance Dependency counseling experience. My Substance Dependency clients have found my last name entertaining over and over again. I have a great sense of humor and only take seriously what is really necessary. I have found laughing and humor to be one of the many useful tools therapeutically and personally. Laughing is a great and proven tool for healing. People generally take themselves too seriously and need permission to take a break from that so they can find some needed light heartedness at times.
My clients describe me as inspiring, consistently optimistic and easy to talk to. I believe in the innate goodness of all people and am passionate about helping them live the quality daily life intended for all.
On a more serious not you can count on me for the following in our work together:
1.) Confidentiality and good rapport
2.) Superior facilitation skills necessary to lead an effective therapeutic process
3.) Thorough and timely evaluation of the presenting problem.
4.) Clear and precisely defined course of treatment with measurable goals and objectives.
5.) Established picture of what life can look like when we've accomplished our work to your desires.
6.) Closing Summary and clear plan for steps beyond conclusion.

I am honored to have you consider us working together on some very sensitive personal matters.
I treat each client in the way that I would want my family members to be treated.
Thank you for your consideration.

I am so thankful for Bill. He listens empathetically and guides me in the right direction. I am grateful for his insight. He is caring and is not judgmental. I feel like I could tell him anything. He helps me see things with a new perspective. I highly recommend him and would encourage anyone who needs therapy to reach out to him.

William Stoner listened well and I could tell from what he said that he understood what my main concerns were. He offered good counsel, and his suggestions reduced the anxiety I felt. He's personable and easy to talk to. Highly recommend.

William Stoner is patient and kind. Allows me to talk and he listens. Feels like he is the missing piece that’s been missing
