What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. I make every effort to treat clients with respect, meet them where they are in their life journey, and help them find solutions to their most pressing problems.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

William  Bill Kelly has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in both California and Tennessee for over 20 years. Bill has worked with adults, children, and adolescents in a variety of settings, including outpatient clinics, juvenile hall, and local school systems. While he has helped clients deal with grief/loss, life transitions, depression, and anxiety, Bill has particular interests in Christian counseling (because he s a Christian) and men s issues (because he s a man). Bill completed his Master of Science (MS) in Psychology at California State University, Fullerton. He is a Credentialed School Psychologist in both California and Tennessee, a Licensed Educational Psychologist in California, and a Nationally Certified School Psychologist. Bill brings a supportive and empathic approach to his clients and strives to create a safe environment where there are no wrong answers or inappropriate feelings. He utilizes solution focused techniques to help clients with the issues they want to solve. Bill's ultimate aim is to work himself out of a job by getting you to the point where you believe he's no longer needed. Bill wants to help you meet your life goals through a mix of active listening, positive feedback, and an occasional dose of humor. He believes you already have the answers within yourself and just need a little help to rediscover them. Let s get down to work.
