Effective therapist, 5/23/2014

I've been going to Bill Herring for nearly two years & I have to say he has helped me immensely, through my lowest moments until now. He is responsive in crisis moments and supportive no matter what... frame of mind I'm in or what I'm going through. He balances empathy with sound advice. He is an expert in sex addiction and the 12-step process. And his office is discreet and pleasant. Read his essays on his website about the subject and you will be impressed.

Outstanding Professional, 3/11/2014

I have seen Bill Herring for over one year now as a personal therapist. As compared to other therapists I have known, Bill is head and shoulders above them all. He cares. He is effective. He... understands that the goal of therapy is to get better, not just continue therapy. He is also a great value. He can be tough when necessary. Sometimes that's required. If you have a need for individual or couples therapy of any type you would be hurting yourself to not consider Bill. He is the best healthcare professional I have ever known and the only therapist I trust. I am willing to discuss my experience directly through achillesnine@yahoo.com.

This is high praise indeed and a standard I try to bring to every relationship. The goal of therapy is not to stay in therapy! I want to be the kind of therapist who brings out the best in people. I'm ready to work with people who are ready to work! I appreciate you giving a confidential email address for anyone who wants to get any more information about your experience with me. I wasn't expecting that!

Very warm and friendly. Very helpful in stressful situations. He helped us a lot through the rough periods. Excellent service. Secluded single story house. Warm and friendly environment. Total confidentiality. Near Northlake mall. Highly recommended.

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 04-24-2014

Thank you. Many people find my office setting to be ideal since it is just off of the perimeter in a secluded renovated ranch house that has been converted into an exceptionally serene and private office setting. No elevators or public parking lots to threaten a sense of security emotional safety, just a comfortable setting to enhance the counseling experience.

He Cares

Bill is gifted! He helped me to pick myself up when I had hit a terrible bottom. Sex addiction is difficult to face and difficult to discuss, but it doesn't have to be. Bill is kind and makes you feel safe. Throughout my 15 months of working with Bill, I never once felt like he was not giving me 100% of his undivided attention. He really cares. He has seen what works well and what doesn't work so well. It was up to me to do the work, but it was much easier with him along for on the first leg of the journey. It is not easy to be honest with oneself, let alone with others, but it is much easier to be honest with Bill. He was largely responsible for helping me to build the foundation upon which to grow. Thanks for sharing your gift. I highly recommend Bill without hesitation to anyone that may be struggling from the grips of sex addiction.

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 04-24-2014

I appreciate these kind and heartfelt words. I've worked with many kinds of life issues over the last 23 years in private practice. Gradually I have come to focus increasingly on problems of poorly managed sexual desire. For some people the term "sex addiction" fits very well, while for others there are different explanations for secretive, risky or unfulfilling sexual behaviors. I'm glad to be able to provide an opportunity to discuss these kinds of sensitive issues in a respectful and motivating way to help people along their journey of personal recovery.

Words are not enough..

I want to write a glowing review about Bill Herring, but I can't begin to put into words how grateful I am for finding this man and using him as my therapist. I have done a great deal of personal work over the past years through therapy and intensive workshops, but I had a unique experience with Bill. He was completely professional, but I never felt the sense of professional detachment that I have in the past with other therapists. Words can’t express what he provided me. To say that he is empathetic is woefully understating what he brings to our sessions. When I discussed my past traumas, that I thought I had already dealt with sufficiently, it seemed to me that he actually felt my pain… and in doing so, took some of it away from me. The EMDR and brainspotting techniques were remarkable. Bill is a man with deep concern for other people and a passion for learning and willingness to admit his own humanity. The level of safety and caring I felt in his office allowed me to go deeper with my issues than I ever thought possible, and to heal to a level I couldn’t even dream of. As you can see from his responses to these reviews, he has a way of making one feel like we’re doing him a service by allowing him to help us. He has a remarkable gift that I, personally, feel honored to have simply experienced and even more so to have been transformed by.

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 03-03-2013

I feel very grateful and humbled by these sentiments. I've expressed this before, but I want to reiterate that I continue to learn a great deal from many of my clients about what it takes to become a better therapist, a wiser man, and a healthier human being. And it's indeed absolutely true that the people I see in my practice are giving me a great gift by allowing me into their lives. I am clear when I meet with some people that "this is a leader", "this is an excellent writer", "this is a real healer", etc. And sometimes all of those qualities come together in a single person. The thought that generations to come may benefit from the healing and growth that occurs in the present moment is a source of wondrous joy.

Quick Results

The time I spent with Bill was extraordinary. He really helped me resolve some current issues by way of his kind presence, unassuming ways, and the breadth of his knowledge and experience. Bill is very compassionate and offers a genuine sense of acknowledgement so I felt safe to be fully transparent, as he explored with me unresolved trauma from my past that contributed to my current issues. The techniques he used were in response to his being fully present and engaged and in complete service of my healing and growth. It didn’t take long before there were tremendous breakthroughs on my part and truly transformative healing. I found my therapy with Bill to be just what I needed to move forward in my life, in my career, and in my relationships, most especially with my spouse. Bill has a gift of true healing and I am very happy to have worked with him and to have him as part of my ‘team’ for continued growth and well-being.

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 05-10-2012

Thank you very much for such an affirming statement of our work together. After 20+ years in the field, I continue to work to improve my skills in helping people achieve the goals they are seeking not only in therapy but in their lives. This work is a high honor and I carry my commitment to be the best I can be in every situation. I'm not always as successful as I'd like to be but I always dedicate the best of my abilities to those who come to me.

Bill Herring, a Generous Spirit

Bill provided a compassionate presence to help me sort through emotional wreckage of addiction and a broken marriage. He affirmed the blessed parts of me. He did this by listening, empathizing, but also by challenging, pushing me to courageous action and risk. I needed and still need to be challenged. Bill does this in a wise, loving way, like a tribal elder, helping his clients rediscover the light inside. Walking in the labyrinth out back were sweet parts of the journey, back to the hero's journey.

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 03-24-2012

We're all journeying heroes who sometimes get lost, and we're all courageous when acting in the face of our fears. I've never before been described as a tribal elder. I hold the gaze of the person willing to give me this honor, and accept it as a gift to forever treasure and uphold.

If you are serious about improving...go here!

I will be forever grateful for the work and time I spent with Bill. I worked through issues that I thought I could never tell to anyone, that I would always be ashamed of, and that I figured I would always carry with me for the rest of my days. Bill made me feel incredibly comfortable with sharing my issues, and guided me through each one, and ultimately to a place where I know I'll always have peace, contentment, and happiness again. I'm not surprised to see so many other great reviews about him here. Highly recommend! Forever thanks, Bill! :)

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 11-13-2011

I'm deeply grateful to have been of assistance in this and so many inspiring journeys of courage and discovery. So much can be accomplished in therapy that has life-long benefits that pay for themselves many times over.

Changed our lives

My husband and I saw Bill during the most difficult time in our lives and our marriage. We were at rock bottom. Bill was a calming, reassuring presence that helped us to see a brighter future was possible. Please don't give up on yourself or your marriage without getting the proper help. We will always be thankful to Bill. He is a skilled and compassionate therapist.

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 11-13-2011

I deeply appreciate these kind words. I want to repeat what was written above: "Don't give up on yourself or your marriage"!

Mr Herring is an expert in his field

I have seen Mr Herring, LCSW, CSAT for a while he is an expert in his field in my book, and he takes the time to provide the tools one needs to solve real current problems in life with spouses or partners. The tools he provided enabled me to move closer to recovery, handle the partner issues in an understandable, compassionate manner. Mr Herring is familiar with most books published on the subject, and can advise of how to digest such material for the betterment of the couple. This is contributed by someone who really appreciated Mr Herring efforts in therapy and I recommend him with out any reservation. Your life will be the better if you see him and if you are honest with him.

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 08-25-2011

Thank you for taking the time to share your valued impressions of our work together. I do try diligently to be practical in my work with my clients, including giving tools and resources that can be helpful for both individuals and couples. And I appreciate the advice to people about the value of being really honest with me and with yourself. It makes the experience so much more meaningful. Best to you in your journey.....

Fantastic!

Bill has essentially provided me with help and advice that have been truly life-changing! I was depressed and not myself. I was also dealing with an issue that had slowly morphed itself into an addiction. I feel like he truly understood me and he listened to me. Not only that, but he has offered me the kind of help that only a professional with his special skill and level of insight can provide. I owe him so much and will be forever indebted for what he has done to turn me around.

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 05-05-2011

I deeply appreciate such heartfelt words. It is my great honor and pleasure to help people bring forth their truly amazing qualities and transcend old beliefs and behaviors to experience a full, rich and happy life. And as I've often written, my clients teach me valuable and lasting lessons about honesty, courage and the willingness to grow. It's a privilege to be involved in the lives of so many wonderful people who walk through my door. I always look forward to who's next.

One of the Most Positive Experiences in My Life

From our first meeting to the last, Bill always felt like a friend. A friend that always created a safe space for sharing and offered interesting and insightful comments to our discussions. This was my first counseling interaction and it was one of the most positive experiences in my life. I was slightly broken when we met, but after our time together, I feel like I was able to put the pieces back together. As I traverse life's paths, I find comfort knowing that Bill is there to help me if/when I need him. And I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a genuine, perceptive, and kind adviser to help them through life.

Bill Herring LCSW replied on 12-27-2010

Thank you for taking the time to extend this deep affirmation of the potential for great change that is in all of us. May your positive growth continue to build and extend into all areas of your life.

Changed My Like

Bill is an amazing therapist that gets to the root cause quickly, understanding the deep-rooted issues and offers lasting resolutions. Bill was able to save my marriage and allow me finally to understand my true feelings and change my reaction to hurtful situations. I have been to some therapist for years and they just bushed the surface and kept me in a state of hurt. Bill took me back to childhood to the exact traumatic experiences and then brought me forward slowly with love, understanding and compassion to be a strong, dynamic and passionate adult. Anyone who is seeking lasting change for very deep-rooted addiction issues from a therapist that “gets it” and is not motivated my money, but by changing lives, will be very satisfied by Bill Herring. The addiction has been eliminated from my life and now I can live the life on my terms, not following a false master. Bill has a gift that few therapists possess and I would highly recommend his services.

Thank you so very much for these deeply affirming words. I hope the positive changes to your life are ever-lasting.

Bill Saved my Life - A couple of times.

At a low point in my marriage, the bottom of my work career, my only way out was death. Thank God I found Bill. I used Bill as a marriage coach and a career coach and I got much more than that. Today I'm sober in my two main addictions and my marriage is BETTER than EVER! I've let go of my Home Building career identity and am happy working today. THANKS Bill!

I thank you deeply for this heartfelt testament to the potential for great change that we all hold inside of ourselves.
