Bill Herring LCSW

Posted on: 5/12/2008

Genuinly interested in what's best for you

For the period in which I saw Bill, I found him to be one of the most non-judgemental people I have ever encountered. While he would call upon me to be honest regarding behaviors or attitudes taht were unhealthy, or, perhaps, "underdeveloped," I felt that I could really be honest, and therefore get the best advice. I always felt that he had my best interests at heart. I first saw him weekly, and then moved to a less frequent check in. We dealt with a variety of issues that affected my ability to be at my best, from chronic minor depression, to marital discord - but ultimately I came back to what I originally came for, which is that there were certain life goals I wanted to acheive, and felt stuck and unfocused and unable to do so. In the end he proved his integrity by recommending (against his own financial interests) someone who specialized in the kind of life and organizational skills what I was looking for. He is to me a counselor, a life guide and even in general terms a spiritual advisor. I would not hesitate to return to work with him again if the time came that I felt I could use it. I still read his blog and find it very helpful.

Outback Bikes

A great experience

I read the bad reviews here regarding customer service and must say I had quite the opposite experience. Maybe it helped that I went there with an idea what I wanted. I said, “I think this is the bike, but I have to ride it, and I need help knowing my size.” From there they spent about four hours over two days and stayed an hour past closing finding me the “right” bike. They watched me ride to assess the fit and left me riding out in the parking lot as long as I wanted to see how it felt. I walked out with exactly what I thought I’d get, wasn’t pushed to consider something different and they actually helped me avoid the temptation to move up to a more expensive (but also better) bike. They did offer me a good deal on an upgraded ’07 model, but ultimately they listened to me and put me on the bike I wanted. They built the bike for me to come back and try and adjusted it until I liked it as much as the upgraded model I had tried. And (like many bike stores) maintenance is free for life, so if I have any problems or need adjustments, they will keep my bike running right. Edgemond (Edgemont? – sorry if I got that wrong) and Mike were the two I worked with, but one of the bike mechanics also talked to me a bit during the process. Their enthusiasm for bikes shows.

Country Corners Child Dev Ctr

Posted on: 4/1/2005

A real find

Incredible, highly rated and reputable education facility - independantly run. I have had three kids go there from day care through Pre K (they also have after school care beyond Pre K). When I hear people talk about Creme de la Creme and other expensive daycares, it always sounds like Country Crossings which is much much less expensive and not a chain. And they have always accomodated our part time needs (two days a week) without a penalty.
