Dr. William McVey
William began working in mental health after receiving his MA in Counseling Psychology in 2013. As an openly gay, cis gender male, much of his career has been focused on LGBTQ+ issues. William completed his internship at an HIV Non Profit in Nashville, TN and continued working there for the next three years. He moved to the district in 2017 and most recently was working in community mental health.
He has provided psychotherapy regarding LGBTQ+ issues, addiction, couples therapy, trauma, anger management, grief, adjustment issues, mood disorders, severe mental illness, HIV, and medical comorbidities. On top of providing didactic therapy, William has facilitated groups regarding many of these issues. He has also provided psychotherapy to children/young adults and worked with families regarding mental health (ADHD, ODD, Gender Dysphoria, Adjustment Disorder, etc.) and behavioral issues.
After working in these different arenas, William has seen how important wholistic health is, and the impact of incorporating the many different aspects of a life into treatment. He provides therapy from a trauma informed viewpoint.
William is a goal driven, solution focused clinician; he utilizes an integrative, evidence based approach to psychotherapy, curating interventions to the needs of his clients. William views his clients as the experts of their own lives and strives to facilitate their process in actualizing their desired best selves.
William spends a lot of his free time at art galleries, cultural events, dinner parties with friends, or perhaps going to the symphony (his undergraduate degree is in music). William is a supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and sits on the board of the Proud Professionals Network. William is also an avid runner and gym goer, believing that life should be lived in balance.
