9 years defines my experience providing dual diagnosis mental health related counseling services to adolescents, adults and elders in a variety of inpatient/outpatient services in the criminal justice system in conjunction with integrated clinical health systems services. This experience gave me a new direction and way of life consisting of personal growth and change I would like to share with you. Our goal is to share my experiences with those who seek to enhance their level of personal growth and change. Serving adolescents, adults, elders, couples, families and groups with my training in in an eclectic variety of treatment modalities, the actual counseling approach with a given client is determined by your preference and personal goals. With the hope that your goals will center around the self discovery of personal strengths and yielding an increase in self esteem you will realize that your integrity is the most valuable asset about yourself. Upon this discovery you will be able to share with others as you become an extension of the counseling process. My theory is when people have hope and learn to challenge and replace irrational thoughts, beliefs and attitudes they create the biology of courage. By normalizing stress people are fee to experience change. In Relationship focused therapy the counselor will identify strengths by asking family members to take note of the family dynamics they want to maintain The counselor will look for exceptions to the problem by asking couples to recount times when the problem did not occur and to account for why, to formulate a solution and highlight strengths. Couples will review worksheets and experience discoveries by working together to identify strengths and cultural differences. In my experience within the past 9 years couples will experience cohesion within the family unit in which they will find new meaning and purpose. Couples will set goals that identifies a renewed value driven direction as they discover what they want to work towards and what is really important to them.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for William Shanahan. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.
He’s very kind and knowledgeable.
Tom provides an environment to quickly jump into some conversations in an open manner and helps you understand the psychosocial aspects and limitations of each phase of life.
William is very thoughtful and genuinely vested in our family’s well-being. We appreciate everything he has done thus far.
It is clear before you even meet William Shanahan that he is very passionate about helping couples. We appreciated his compassion & understanding of issues we presented to him. He was well-educated & approached solutions/communication styles in several ways so we could find what worked best for us. He is patient and kind and we very much enjoyed working with him.
He has helped my husband and I grow and communicate. We’ve put into place the exercises he’s given us and it has allowed us to input these practices into our everyday lives as well!
Uncle Tom is the bomb
I answered the first question with the wrong response. I wanted to rank him as highly and as warmly as possible. Thank you
He has been absolutely wonderful, I would recommend him to anyone. Completely understanding and helps me put things in perspective.
Interactive and gives positive perspectives. Relatable.
I really enjoy talking with William
He’s helped us so much
Very helpful and understanding to my partner and I. No judgement just absolutely thrilled on what William has done for us. 10/10 would recommend him to anyone needing couples therapy. Best thing we could have done was hire him for our therapy needs.
William (Tom) was fantastic! He gave tools and resources that we were able to use. He listened and gave us advice that we were able grow from. I highly recommend him!
William is great! He listens and provides lots of resources to help navigate what you want to work on.
William is attentive and helpful in between sessions as well. My partner and I are pushed to figure out our own solutions that work for us through the exercises. It’s been a good experience so far.
I appreciate how straight to the point William is.
He’s been great. Thank you.
