Not Taking New Clients

Dr. Bill Herkelrath or “Dr. Herk” has been a professor of counseling and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 30 years. His expertise is in education and training of counselors, psychologists and family therapists, and helping clinicians with clinical supervision.

Dr. Herkelrath was the Director the Marriage and Family Program at Western Seminary in Los Gatos CA. This counseling program created an excellent foundation for Christian counselors and their ministry of care.  

He was the Founder and Dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences in Washington State from 1993 to 2010. These were award winning, multicultural MA and PsyD Counseling Psychology programs that attracted students from around the world. Dr Herk was also the founder of the MA in Counseling Psychology Degree Program at Palo Alto University in 2012.  

Finding the right therapist can be a difficult job. You want to find someone who is caring and knowledgeable. You want a treatment plan to help you navigate the road to emotional health and happiness. As a professor and educator I have explored in detail the issues therapists must understand if they are to be successful in guiding their clients. I would be honored to work with you on your personal journey.
