About me

As far as I can remember, I have always been a counselor. As a kid, adults would seat next to me on the bus and tell me the problems of their day. I soon learned the value of listening and discovered this was the profession for me. I then went to college and got a BS Degree and later an MSW in Social Work. I became licensed in VA, Maryland and DC. With over thirty years doing crisis intervention, individual therapy, group therapy, and case management; I would like to help you through modern technology, to conquer your fears, discover why things are not working right and why you keep doing the same wrong things repeatedly.

I worked with Willie for about 20 sessions, and I cannot emphasize how amazing he has been as a counselor. He listened to me very intently and was able to clearly discuss what I was going through and provide solutions I could use to address them. He opened a lot of new perspectives for me and I feel I'm able to walk away with a new and healthy outlook on my life. Willie is extremely informative, professional, and kind, and I really felt like I was in great hands. He's also great about emphasizing that if you put in the effort into therapy you will be able to go far, and I definitely felt I was able to learn so much by putting in the effort. Would highly recommend to anyone, especially if you're struggling with getting over a relationship or stressing about dating and your self image. Thank you for everything Willie!

I like that Mr. Willie incorporates prayer into our sessions. He is very kind and supportive. I don’t feel any judgement when discussing personal matters with him. I am confident in his expertise and like that nothing shocks him.
