About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor in the State of Missouri, and I have been practicing for six years. I typically work with adolescents and adults, and I have experience treating a broad range of concerns. These include anxiety, depression, ADHD, bipolar disorder, spiritual crises, organizational skills and goals, communication, and relationships. I also have experience with grief and trauma, as well as abuse. Finally, I have also worked with couples and pre-marital counseling.

I utilize multiple different approaches, depending upon the context and the client's specific needs. For instance, I often utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, logotherapy, narrative therapy, and existential approaches. I appreciate the complexity of individual's and the variability each person's unique set of circumstances bring to the table. Hence, my approach reflects these observations, as I aim to avoid over-simplistic or reductionist views of people and their concerns.

Life can easily become overwhelming, as our daily experiences present us with a staggering amount of complexity and stress. It's not reasonable to assume that we can, or even should, handle these things on our own. We are social creatures, and thriving in the world requires us to take hold of those who have extended themselves to us. That is what it means to make the choice to speak to a counselor. It is the acceptance of an invitation to walk together, with someone, through a season of life. It is one of the most human things we can do.

I greatly anticipate walking alongside you, as you take the first steps to address and overcome the obstacles in your path.

Billy is an extremely intelligent and thorough professional. He has helped me in so many ways and makes me feel like I’m speaking with a friend. I am so thankful that I found him on the BetterHelp app!

William is a kind-hearted, gentle therapist, who will lead you down paths you were not sure you could take. His gentle, friendly approach to therapy leads you to truly feel like he cares about you, your goals, your dreams, and your past traumas. I cannot recommend William enough for basically anyone who wants to explore themselves, their relationships, and their traumas.

William is very easy to talk to and understanding about my issues. I have enjoyed having him as my couselor and have gained a lot of insight that has helped me.

William is great at what he does. I was hesitant to talk to a male councilor because I feel more comfortable expressing myself to a woman. I think it was a pride thing. But William made it easy for me to talk and be open and make steps forward, not backwards.

William has been amazing to work with & I am so glad I got paired with him. He has a knack for hearing what I’m trying to say and just being a comforting, solid support.

Simply stated: Billy is a rock star. He continues to save my life, week after week, year after year. I have spent countless hours for over half of my life, trying to find the right therapist for me. For the last 5 years, he has given me more support than any human that has come into my life. If more people in this world behaved like him, I just know this world would be a better, kinder, accepting and critical thinking place. A million thank you's for putting up with my chaos for all these years. You truly are a blessing.
