About Bill Maier

"I have helped over 1000 to develop a felt sense of safety in order to risk exploring new choices in their lives. I work with adults, youth, couples and families in a nurturing interactive style.  My 12 year-old granddaughter says I am the nicest person she knows.  

You are never too old or young to recognize and reorganize damaging habits. Setting up patterns of self-improvement is life long and satisfying.  When you come into therapy it is a time to expand the sense of yourself.  Your and my job will be to get familiar with the values that have helped you get through difficult situations and use them now. You may be a combat veteran, mental health worker, medical practitioner, business person, laborer or law enforcement worker having family or relationship problems.  Or you may be a student or young artist who is experiencing problems with anxiety or depression.  You need clear and practical strategies for replacing automatic reactions with mindful responses.  Feeling understood by another human being is useful for flexible problem solving and clarifying your values.  The majority of my experience is working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  "PTSD will definitely get better with knowledgeable treatment."

I would be happy to provide you or your group with a presentation or training on trauma recovery, Attachment Theory and/or their neuroscience. I am available as a consultant for therapists.   Please call or email to find out how I can be helpful for you.
