William Schroeder is a licensed professional counselor and has a Master’s degree in counseling from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio. He and his wife own Just Mind. His area of expertise includes cognitive counseling of adolescents and adults. He believes the principle factor in counseling is the relationship between client and therapist. Trust in one another is vital in creating change. He works very hard to create an open atmosphere where problems can be revealed and client and therapist can together work toward solutions.
Eighty percent of William’s practice involves working with high functioning teens and adults on the autism spectrum (formerly known as Aspergers) and those who have ADD/ADHD. He enjoys this work and builds strong relationships with these clients that produce results. He researches best practices and works with clients to build customized plans for results at work, in relationships, and in growth in self-understanding. He thinks of what he does as helping clients deepen their emotional intelligence. William’s style is very warm, humanistic, and solution-focused in his approach to helping people overcome obstacles. He has completed Level 2 of Gottman training, basics of interpersonal neurobiology (accessing neural networks), advanced training in ADHD with James Ochoa, training on Aspergers from Tony Atwood, and is practiced in using mindfulness in sessions to help clients overcome anxiety. He is the founder of Just Mind and the Austin Mental Health Group, which has over 2,000 therapists as members.
William has a range of clients, from college students to people in the tech industry. His background in technology, music, and television helps him relate to clients, and he is highly personable. He works with clients on a variety of issues including loss, life transition, life improvement, developing relationship strategies, breaking free from depression, divorce recovery, and personal growth. Being a survivor of Hurricane Katrina, he understands the lasting effects of PTSD and trauma. He feels this experience has helped to increase his awareness and understanding of trauma survivors.
