This is Bill Strong of Denver and I’d like to write a bit about myself. I’m a native of Denver, Colorado and a Licensed Psychotherapist. I’m currently enjoying my work in private practice, where I specialize in Solution Focused Therapy for Children/Teens, Families, Couples and Adults. Prior to private practice I worked in both Children’s Hospital’s child and adolescent psychiatric units, as well as other Denver area residential and outpatient programs.
I grew up in the Park Hill Area of Denver, and attended East High School (Go Angles!). My graduate degree is from the University of Denver. I am an avid outdoors-man, enjoying everything from Whitewater Rafting (yes I have my own raft) to camping, mountaineering, and fly fishing. I am a two time graduate of National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), and enjoy teaching my children and other youth the joys of being active in the wilderness. In fact, I first began working with children and families as a counselor for a local wilderness program where we took inner-city youth backpacking and mountaineering. I was a Music Major in college at the time and was fortunate to find my “calling” in this manner. Helping people is a huge part of my life, and I enjoy helping others find their own path.
My practice is Solution Focused. I have a very direct approach and share with my clients what I think (unlike some therapists who just sit and ask questions/listen). I believe that change comes from a clear focus and a determination to solve the challenges before us. Most people enter into therapy due to a desire to change painful or ineffective patterns. Solution Focused therapy helps in identifying and changing these patterns. I love my work and enjoy helping my clients. I find it fulfilling to assist people in creating “healthy change” in their lives and relationships.
That’s just a bit about Bill Strong, Professional Therapist of Denver.
