Loving someone the way they need to be loved versus the way you want to love them requires effective communication.
About Eric Williams
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I have experienced the pleasure of working with hundreds of people from all over the globe in my private practice in Fayetteville, NC. Being a veteran paratrooper, military service members and dependents find it easy to communicate relationship and personal stresses with me. My experiences being raised in a south GA community with gang violence and crime allow me to connect with youth labeled “at-risk” or “juvenile delinquent.” For that reason as well, I speak at a local high school for career day. Because autism awareness has become a new passion for me, I serve on various committees supporting autism and the board of directors for Autism Society of Cumberland County. I am also a husband of eight years and father of twin boys diagnosed with severe autism. When I am not serving as a human jungle gym for my kids, serving clients and the community, and being a self-proclaimed world’s greatest husband, I enjoy spending time with friends, working out, and listening to music.
Eric Williams Success Stories
Marriage and Military Life
As a recently married woman to a servicemember and a mother of two kids under the age of 10 and another on the way, not to mention newly located to a new state, I found myself at times to be in way over my head.more
I contacted Military One Source with a personal S.O.S.! This agency located a few different marital therapists that specialized in my kind of situation.
Eric was one of the few that actually called me back promptly and the only one that struck a chord.
I went into this with fear in my heart that I wouldn't be understood and would be more discouraged than I came - this was not the case.
Eric offered not only a a sympathetic ear (ladies your husband can only take so much; sometimes we need a professional!) in a nonjudgmental environment, but he offered real world advice I could apply. The funny thing is I went in there speaking on my behalf and that of my husband's, and I always left my conversations feeling like Eric included both us in his feedback.
Eric is able to connect on a level that helps to bring solidarity and clarity into a somewhat hectic and mostly misunderstood lifestyle of a servicemember and their spouse's - something I need and value greatly.
I recommend Eric highly if you are looking for a professional therapist who can help with kindness and humor and can expertly navigate these often murky waters of matrimony, military life, and parenthood.
Eric has definitely enriched my life and that of my family's.
