My name is Willard. Thank you for visiting my website. My approach to counseling is that each individual has the potential within them to accomplish anything. My job is to help you realize that potential and to make peace with the issues that you face. Notice I never said anything about “getting over” what you have going on, because I believe that there are some things that make that impossible. But, I believe that if you are willing to work with me to achieve your goals, you can achieve the recovery you truly want.
My journey to the present day has been unconventional to say the least. I’ve worked in the mental health field since graduating with my Master’s Degree in 2007. I’ve worked with many different populations in many different settings. I’ve also supervised others, taught at a college level, and made presentations to other professionals. In the real world, I’ve worked in law enforcement, the medical field, customer service, and now I own my own business. I believe this varied experience allows me to approach care from a more emphatic and take a more common sense approach to treatment.
I invite you to take a step toward something difficult and do something that is good for you. You always have the opportunity to go back to the way things were; that isn’t challenging in the least.
how it works
The Milieu Therapeutic Services uses the latest video conferencing technology to provide you with caring compassionate care in the comfort of your own environment. We are happy to see adult individuals and couples, as well as some adolescents.
Your journey starts with a 30 minute screening appointment. This meeting gives us an idea of what brings you to therapy and if we are a good fit for each other. Some information will be collected, and we can go over any other questions you may have and set an appointment to get started.
You may want to consider finding a safe quiet area in order to attend your sessions so that you are free from distractions. We also recommend using earphones or a Bluetooth headset if possible. Prior to your appointment, you’ll be sent a link to the room. This link can be accessed on a computer or mobile device to join the meeting.
We start with a 30 minute screening appointment which requires a $5.00 deposit. If you decide to sign up for services, you will get that credited back to you at your first visit. Likewise, if we are not a good fit for you, we will refund that back to you.
If you do not have insurance, or choose not to use your insurance, our pricing starts at $75 a session for individuals and $95 for couples.
