Will also served as a Chaplaincy Intern at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, NC where he worked in the Emergency Room, the Adult Psychiatric Ward, and throughout the hospital as a Grief Counselor for the dying or for the families of the recently deceased.

Upon returning from Albania, Will received a job at Vocational Rehabilitation of South Carolina where he worked in York County and Chester County high schools as a Transition Counselor. Will gained even more experience working with children and adolescents while serving the special needs population of the five schools to which he was assigned.  

 

With a desire to work with a more diverse population and conduct more in-depth therapy, Will gained his licensure through South Carolina as a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and worked with multiple private agencies before finding his perfect fit with Dr. Beth Wilson and Thrive Family Services, LLC. After two difficult years, Will was honored to call himself a fully licensed LPC. Always moving forward, Will has recently chosen to take on a Supervisory role and is challenging himself as a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor Candidate. He is adept at offering therapy to children, adolescents, and adults with an array of diagnoses. Will has found his passion and specializes in working with children and adolescents with trauma and/or ADHD/anger issues, individuals with special needs, as well as grief counseling for all ages. He uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Reality Therapy, and other clinically researched modalities to address each patient’s specific needs. Will is able to offer individual, family, and marriage counseling as well as clinical supervision.
