The most courageous thing we can do is embrace our own stories. It is in the choice to embrace that we discover our strengths, weaknesses, and quirks that allow us to live our most authentic lives. We must be aware that the journey is not always pleasing. Some twists and turns will be scary, but even in those moments, there is discovery. My oh my, what an amazing and freeing experience that discovery can be. I enjoy helping individuals navigate their healing journey by providing a safe space filled with compassion, non-judgment, and authenticity. Now is the time to put yourself first and start learning how to be unapologetically you!

Hi! My name is Billy. Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, stress, anger...or possibly all five? These issues are not uncommon and can be debilitating, especially when guilt or shame are added to the mix. But you can kick them all to the curb. All it takes is a willingness to change your perspectives. I've worked with thousands of clients (adults and children) who struggle with self-defeating beliefs that zap the joy out of life. And I've found that Hope and Purpose, along with healthy doses of Motivation and Creativity, crush inner demons. How do you find Hope and Purpose? It's not as complicated as you might think. We are made to help each other. We are made to communicate. We are made to have a positive impact. Sometimes, though, life attacks from all directions and leaves us feeling defeated. That's when we need help. I'm here to listen. I'm here to learn about your struggles and find ways to help you view them differently. And, who knows? I may even share some of my Blackstone Griddle secrets along the way. God Bless!
