Director of Multi-Site Housing & Services
Early in his career, Bill worked as a fundraiser for two different children’s museums, and he found his way into the field of mental health through watching friends pursue work in healthcare and the clergy. Bill earned a BA in Sociology/English at Tufts University, an MA in Applied Psychology at Golden Gate University, and a certificate as an End of Life Practitioner from the Metta Institute in Sausalito. After moving to the Bay Area in 1997, Bill has worked as a case manager, psychotherapist, program manager, administrator, and clinical supervisor for social service and community mental health organizations. Since becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in 2003, he has also maintained a private psychotherapy practice in Oakland and has provided clinical supervision to graduate psychotherapy students enrolled at JFK University and California Institute of Integral Studies. Bill joined Hope Solutions in 2010 to provide direct case management and mental health services to families at Garden Park Apartments, and he helped launch the mental health intern program at GPA during his tenure there. Bill has also played a primary role in launching and growing Hope Solutions’ multi-site housing programs. In addition to enjoying his work for Hope Solutions and with private clients, Bill has been honored to serve on the Contra Costa County Health Care for the Homeless Co-Applicant Board since its inception.
