A Few Words About Me

Since I can't know exactly what information you may find important in order to decide if I'm the right counselor for you, here's a little general background about me. 

Bill Herring is an Atlanta counselor and certified sex addiction therapist

A Caring Atlanta Psychotherapist for Sensitive Personal Issues

My education, training and experience are only one side of my story.  The best therapists know the importance of drawing on common sense, personal life experience, genuine compassion and a fundamental respect for the human journey.  I'm comfortable working with a wide range of lifestyles, values and attitudes.  You can depend on me for guidance, insight, support, encouragement and understanding -- as well as sincere joy in your progress.    

Individuals seek my help for anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship problems and similar life struggles.  Couples come to me to deepen their affection, improve their communication, rebuild damaged trust and achieve other goals related to a satisfying relationship.

An Atlanta Expert On Issues of Repeated Deceptions, Chronic Infidelity and Sex Addiction

I have extensive experience helping people who are struggling with sexual problems such as repeated infidelities, excessive use of pornography and other behaviors that interfere with a healthy and happy life and relationships.  Whether this behavior is poor decision making or a deeper problem like sex addiction, it's wise to seek out someone who specializes in these issues.  I'm a nationally recognized expert on this kind of behavior.  I draw upon my training as a  Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) when appropriate.  I've written extensively about this topic for professionals and  the general public.  I'm a former board member of the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health, and for many yearsI have served on the editorial board of the Journal of Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity. I was also recently honored to be one of 15 people who each wrote a chapter for the recently published book "Reflections on the History of the Sex Addiction Field".  

In addition to the above I also have extensive history helping spouses and other partners of sexual betrayers heal from the trauma of discovery and disclosure of sexual infidelities, especially when repeated or chronic.   I am the only Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) in Atlanta who has also received extensive training to become a Certified Clinical Partner Specialist through the Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS), an organization which I believe has richly earned its motto as"Your Trusted Source for Transcending Sexual Betrayal".  I provide individual, couples and group counseling.  I also provide single-session or extended-session consultations to help people figure out what's going on, 'get it all out', take stock of how everybody is doing, get an initial game plan, learn about and locate emotional support and other helpful resources, determine what levels of assistance are available and preferred, and address any special concerns.  

Unparalleled Privacy, Comfort and Personalized Attention

While I help people from all walks of life, I'm able to offer an exceptional level of privacy for those in high profile or sensitive positions.  Upper level executives, physicians, attorneys, therapists, and public figures appreciate the discretion and heightened confidentiality of my convenient yet secluded office setting.  Our conversations are covered by federal and state laws governing privileged confidential communication.This means nobody can make me give any information about a client without that person's premission.  You're safe.

I hope this brief description will help you decide whether I'm the right person for your specific needs. If you have any questions, or if you're ready to set up a time to meet in person, I welcome you to contact me directly.
