Meet Our Counselors
I welcome the opportunity to get to know you. In my personal and professional life I have learned that time doesn't always heal pain, but we can learn to feel better, cope, and heal pain over time.
I am a compassionate, person-centered counselor specializing in Emotion Focused Couple's Therapy (EFT).
Are you feeling stuck? Are you feeling anxious or depressed? Therapy can help. I am caring and understanding and utilize a non-judgmental approach.
Working from an eclectic and integrated approach I am present to support clients as they grow to access their own inner resources.
My name is William ( Billy ) McAndrew. Therapy is my passion and I strive to treat those in need to the best of my ability.
Regardless of the reason one might be seeking counseling, I am committed to “partnering” and empowering each of my clients while meeting each client wherever they might be in their unique life journey.
I utilize a holistic humanistic approach to provide a safe and inviting therapeutic environment.
Individual, Couple and Group Therapy
Welcome to your first steps in receiving Counseling Therapy. Therapy is an opportunity for personal growth, healing, and to help you cope with difficult life circumstances or emotions. We provide a safe, confidential space to explore personal issues for children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. We have therapists with varied backgrounds who specialize in different areas of treatment. Areas of treatment include: support for addiction and recovery, anxiety, career counseling, depression, grief and healing, personal growth, personality disorders, relationship counseling, stress management, trauma and PTSD.
Your first appointment serves as an intake appointment. We will want to hear about the difficulties that led to you making an appointment, goals for therapy, and general information about yourself and your current life situation. By the end of this first appointment, we will give you some initial recommendations on what we think will help.
As Counseling continues, we will together identify goals to help you feel better by understanding the connections between past events and current difficulties. Towards the end of Counseling we give you the support and encouragement to be independent outside of treatment as you continue to grow on your life's path.
