Dr. Ryan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ryan "William was raised in the steel city of Lackawanna, NY, on the south border of Buffalo, with Bethlehem Steel occupying the city's total Lake Erie shoreline. William has been counseling since 1974 when, as a young university student, he began volunteering at a crisis hotline. He quickly rose to positions of Trainer, and Executive Director. He began working as a psychiatric nurse (1978-1980). William then attended Hofstra University, where he earned his Clinical-School Psychology Ph.D. in 1986. In the more than 30 years since obtaining his Ph.D., William spends many weekends each year learning with experts as well as passing this training on to seasoned therapists. In 2016, William and his wife Justine celebrated 25 incredibly awe-inspiring years of marriage together. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ryan "Whether doing individual therapy or marriage therapy, William is known for his warmth, compassion, and a straight talking, no-nonsense style. 

In marriage therapy, William uses techniques drawn from a variety of sources, including Emotion Focused Therapy, Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy, and Relational Life Therapy (RLT).  Couples are led, with extraordinary quickness and precision, to their 'next step' toward unlocking their fullest potential.  Some couples go from good to great, and many transform in the 3-hour couples intensive, changing patterns that have bothered them for years. "
