Headway

Hi, my name is Bill Deggs. I operate a general practice where I work with both children and adults. I believe that a safe and trusting relationship is the foundation for all therapeutic work, and I am passionate about utilizing Strength-Based approaches for achieving better Mental Health. My focus includes Anxiety, Anger Management, Depression, Disorder Prevention, Trauma, Grief and Loss, Relationship Issues, Substance Abuse, and Adjustment to Life Transitions.

I myself struggled with Anxiety and Depression as a young person, and I have learned much about empathy and helping others through my own trials. I hold graduate degrees in Psychology, Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling. Additionally, I have years of specialized training and experience in the fields of Play Therapy and Substance Abuse Treatment. I enjoy carpentry, hiking, biking, traveling, and generally being outdoors which is why I moved to the Austin area! If you feel that counseling with me would be a good fit, please contact me to start your proactive journey today.
