Dr. Williams has been the only psychologist able to actually provide help. He listens and provides honest, direct feedback, along with helpful suggestions that have helped me immensely. He has helped get to the very deep root of why I feel the way I do and how to work to address it head on. No other psychologist has even come close. Would definitely recommend.

Dr. Williams was dismissive and unprofessional and uncaring with me. As soon as I entered the office he began giving me ADHD questionnaires. He did not evaluate any other diagnoses. He also suggested that my husband had ADHD based on his profession alone. In addition to this he discussed his own diagnosis of ADHD and who his provider was for this interaction. When I tried to talk to him about my concerns he said were based on my relationship with my parents. He took no history about this.

Seemed like he was doing psychology by numbers, didn’t really make any attempt to understand my issues.

DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILD HERE. Talked about himself the entire time and is extremely quick to throw your child on medication without even talking to them. It is heartbreaking to think this man is 'counseling' young people. He will tear down your child's self esteem IN FRONT OF YOU, to make a point at why they should be medicated.
