About William J. Downey, MSW, LICSW

Greetings! My name is William. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW). I have been practicing as a social worker for the past 15 years. I have experience working in Hospice and Palliative Care and my practice is primarily focused on working with adults. I recognize the courage and strength that it takes to embark on this journey toward wellness. I take pride in being truly present with my clients and I will provide active listening and will validate your concerns. Whether you’re struggling with work, school, relationships, family, or behavioral concerns, I am here to walk alongside and empower you to live your fullest life and be your healthiest, most authentic self. I believe therapy sessions are a dynamic process of active listening and productive feedback from both the therapist and the client. I specialize in (CBT) cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and solution-focused therapies in a mutually respectful, collaborative, and engaging format.
