As your therapist I am here to guide and support you as you walk through challenging situations and move down the path of achieving greater well-being, awareness, and happiness. Together we will highlight your strengths and examine thoughts and feelings that contribute to your personal struggles, symptoms, and challenges.

Arthur Williams III, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Arthur Williams III is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Louisiana. He works with all types of adult clients to include couples, LGBTQIA+ and straight, substance abusers, EAP referrals, people suffering from anxiety and depression, and those seeking a clinician with a Christian perspective. Arthur's background includes Lead EAP clinician, Alcohol Drug Social Work Supervisor, Program Manager, Graduate Student Supervisor, Program Manager, and Senior Clinician.

Arthur received his Bachelor of Social Work from Dillard University. He believes can uniquely help by reflecting on his many life experiences and the many clients that he has come into contact with over the past 35 to 40 years. For example, with those suffering from grief, he may share how he can relate: "I understand losing someone close to you. It's devastating, most times unexpected, and you feel lost. I felt the exact same thing when I lost my 16-year-old son unexpectedly in 1995."

Arthur tends to look at things just a little bit differently from the average counselor/clinician. If you think that Arthur might be a good fit for you, please don't hesitate to reach out or schedule an appointment with him.

I believe that Stephanie Dean is an amazing individual and counselor. Not only does she care about her consumers, she also cares about other counselors that are new to the way things happen. I noticed that it was easy to speak openly because I feel that she truly empathizes when I express my issues and frustrations. She is always a joy to speak with and to. She will be an amazing asset wherever she goes.
