Hello, I am William Boyden MSW a Clinical Social Worker LCSW and hold a QMHP-A license with 20 years’ experience providing counseling to diverse, multi-cultural and displaced population in the US. I obtained my Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work in 1992. As a Social Worker my affiliations are with federal psychiatric hospitals, State and private psychiatric hospitals, outpatient mental health centers, Federal court systems and the department of education.
Have you ever felt that nobody hears you when you are asking for help or understands you and you just need a listening ear to hear and understand how you are feeling? I am that listening ear. I enjoy helping and caring for people. I enjoy working with people who are ready for a change to improve their life. During everyday life struggles, depression, stress, anxiety, conflicts can be challenging and difficult in finding balance and stability. I would like to work with you in helping you to find your inner peace.
I have worked intensively with survivors of sexual abuse: children, teens, and adults. Also have worked with members of the LGBTQ community to treat depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, and anger management. I have extensive experience in facilitating child and adolescent support groups, survivors of domestic violence groups and motivational groups for all ages. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and young adults to help them find their identity and develop effective coping strategies to achieve their individual success. I also enjoy working with couples repairing their relationship and facilitating workshops for couples.
My counseling style is influenced by Person Centered Therapy, and I incorporate psychodrama therapy in my sessions.
My clients tell me that they most appreciate my good listening skills, caring for others, motivation and therapy techniques that allows them to identify the behaviors and self-esteem issues that need improvement to adapt and interact with peers, family members and authority figures in our sessions. Clients develop trust in me and commit to therapy sessions to get to the heart of problems that they need to work on to improve their lifestyle.
In working with individuals, I ask you to look at issues as challenges that can be solved to grow and overcome and identify the core issues, to gain an understanding of themselves and others. As your therapist I will help you identify your strengths and create a positive change.
In working with couples, I help them understand the communication barriers and emotional reasons that cause a breakdown in their relationship that results in imbalance. My goal is to identify positive strategies to practice and use to build a healthy relationship and a loving honest trusting reconnection with one another.
I understand it takes courage and faith to reach out for help. I seek to be empathic, non-judgmental, and provide a therapeutic environment for clients to begin their life changing experience. I offer flexible day and evening appointments. Reach out today to get the help you deserve!
