William Hutter, PsyD.
My work is heavily influenced from a psychodynamic perspective, which in the simplest of terms means that our behaviors and feelings as an adult are based on our childhood experiences. In our work together, we will investigate patterns from your childhood and the role they play now, discuss your dreams, and make sense of your relationships, and how you see and experience the world around you.
Over the years, I have enjoyed working with young children, adolescents, adults, couples and families on a variety of topics, from depression and anxiety, health and eating concerns, trauma, sexual and identity issues, and relationship concerns. My doctoral dissertation was on pedophilia and as such, I have worked extensively with both perpetrators and survivors of sexual abuse/assault. Another area of interest in my work has been with persons struggling with addiction issues; whether the addiction is food, alcohol, drugs, pornography, or any other substance or activity. I have experience working with persons from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds; I have lived in another country and I identify as part of the LGBTQ community, which provides me an inside perspective into some of the nuances that come along with being part of a marginalized group.
A variety of treatment options are available to you and together we will determine which fits best with your unique needs. I work from a person-centered and strengths-based perspective and incorporate solution-focused theory in my approach. I provide culturally and logistically appropriate services to best meet your treatment needs. Along with my psychodynamic perspective, I incorporate PREPARE/Enrich in my work with couples and am a level 2 trained EMDR (eye-movement de-sensitization and reprocessing) clinician.
Encouragement is a key ingredient for improving ourselves and our relationships with others. Without encouragement, increased conflict, misbehavior and other undesirable emotions can come on the scene. The idea of encouragement is something that is lifelong; children need encouragement to grow and prosper, relationships need encouragement to mature and deepen, and yet, many of us struggle with feeling encouraged or encouraging others. Having obtained my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, followed by a doctorate in Clinical Psychology, I would like the opportunity to encourage you to be the best you there is.
