William(Bill)Smith, Ph.D. an author, psychotherapist,consultant and personal coach. My practice focuses on online counseling, phone and face-to-face session with survivors of personal trauma,childhood abuse, relationship concerns, and individual troubled by depression or confusing emotions.

As a psychotherapist and consultant, I philosophically believe in the ability of mankind to achieve any goal truly desired. I, also, believe that human being's capacity for personal growth is limited solely by his or her imagination. Man is a unique organism;and is the only organism with the capacity to transcend his environment. Man is a self-creating being who was not innately endowed with personality or goals;but must choose them by acts of individual decisions.
