A Trusted Atlanta Counselor and Psychotherapist For Individual, Relationship and Sexual Concerns

Bill Herring, Atlanta psychotherapist and consultant

When you're seeking help for an important personal matter, you want to be confident that you've made the right choice.  I hope that the information you'll find here will help you decide if I'm the best person for your unique individual needs. 

With over 28 years in private practice as an Atlanta counselor and psychotherapist, I've honed three main areas of professional service.  First, I help adults resolve life problems of all kinds and achieve greater happiness, well-being and purpose in their lives, even when their struggles are complex, deeply rooted or seem despairing.

I also provide experienced Atlanta relationship counseling to help people work through all types of issues with each other.  Struggles with intimacy, communication, boundaries, conflicts, and the balance between personal and relationship satisfaction are common issues for us all. I'm able to provide a fair, structured and safe opportunity to deal with almost any challenge or concern that partners in a relationship want to address.

Finally, I help people overcome problematic sexual behaviors that conflict with their commitments, values and/or self-control.  These conflicts can happen for a lot of reasons, including sex or pornography addiction (which aren't the same).  I've had the honor of providing guidance and support to people in all kinds of painful situations involving their consensual sexual behavior, and I've witnessed many inspirational life transformations as people reach new levels of integrity, stability, intimacy and self-awareness as a result of effectively healing from the pain they have caused themselves and those they love.

Since I've had this website for close to 20 years it's grown into several sections.  Rooting around for a few minutes here can help you decide if I'm the right person for your needs.  My professional background presents my unique qualifications.  I've got another section that houses my articles for professionals and the general public.  I also hope people enjoy reading my shorter essays and observations on my blog as much as I've enjoyed writing them over many years.  I think it's fair to say that if you get anything positive from what you read here then it's likely we'll do very well together. 

Finally, my office location is different from what you may expect.  I'm easy to get to, just two blocks outside I-285 at the LaVista/Northlake exit, on the east side of Atlanta.  My office sits on a quiet street of former residences converted into businesses.  Instead of lobbies, elevators and support staff you will enjoy a peaceful and well-maintained sanctuary with me as your sole point of contact, including outdoor meditative features to prepare for or integrate our discussions.  Setting does indeed make a world of difference.  

If you want to set up a time to meet please first look over my policies, rates and other important information, then if all that works for you I hope you will contact me so we can arrange an initial meeting.  I try to offer initial appointments quickly so you don't have to wait long before meeting.
