Meet Bill

I acquired a Masters Degree in counseling from the Albuquerque branch of Webster University in 1999. That same year I began working as a counselor for Albuquerque Public Schools. Six years in that system provided me much experience with children.

While working for Abuquerque Public Schools, I acquired my counseling licensure, LPCC (Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor), and am now certified by the Counseling and Therapy Practice Board of the state of New Mexico. Soon after, I started this private counseling practice, which now specializes in trauma, depression, and anxiety. I started the initial EMDR training in 2007. 

In 2020 I moved to Gardnerville, Nevada and obtained a counseling license there. Since I am no working online, I see people all over the United States, as well as in Nevada, and New Mexico.

Since starting my practice I have also served as a volunteer facilitator at the Children’s Grief Center of New Mexico, and later as a member of the board of directors. After moving from APS, I began working with Southwest Family Guidance Center where I worked with families, adolescents, and children.

Some relevant specialty training includes:

        Sand Tray Therapy taught by Theresa Kestle Ph.D.

        Relational Enhancement Therapy by Mary Helen Schnieder Ph.D.

        Grief training by Children’s Grief Center of New Mexico.

        EMDR training 1 and 2, presented by the EMDR Institute.

        Attachment theory with Dr. Jeff Katzman.

        Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy with Dr. Jeff   Katzman.

        Addiction and Urge Reduction EMDR training with Dr. A. J. Popkey.

        Theory and treatment of Complex PTSD and Dissociation with Dr. James Knipe.

Before my work in the mental health field, I worked as a as a church pastor for thirty-five years and later oversaw my church’s US youth operations.

 I  live in Gardnerville, Nevada with my wife, Elaine. We have two daughters and three grandchildren.

Every journey begins with a single step
