“I have known William Brosh for many years.  He is a highly intelligent, very responsible, serious minded professional who is well qualified on many levels to deliver a high quality of service.  I would give him my highest recommendation without reservation.”
--Stanley Graham, PhD  {Director of Education and Training, Fifth Avenue Center; and former President of the American Psychological Association}
“I have had the pleasure to be supervised by Bill Brosh. His calming presence and dynamic personality were instrumental in my learning.  His understanding of the human condition is truly remarkable.”
--Genny Cuocci LMSW, CASAC
As one of Bill’s former supervisors, I observed his thorough and empathic approach in assessing and supporting those in need. He is professional and effective in his service delivery as a psychotherapist. I would certainly recommend him.
--Karen Carlucci, LCSW
I saw Bill for individual psychotherapy for 3 years and group therapy for almost a year.   My work with him facilitated my becoming a strong, confident, and insightful woman.  Additionally he inspired me to reach my fullest potential in my own career in the mental health field.  In hindsight I believe that Bill’s ability as a psychotherapist was at the heart of helping me become the very happy and fulfilled person that I am -- that is as a wife, mother of three, mental health professional and simply a fulfilled and healthy individual.
--LL, former client

More About Me
I began my work as a psychotherapist later in life, after other diverse career paths.  My prior professional experiences included many years in which I managed and owned businesses; taught English as a Second Language; and worked as a personal assistant to professionals. 
Yet, none of my professional experiences felt completely gratifying – something always seemed to be missing.  After a good deal of self-reflection (which I learned in therapy!) the reason for my discontent became obvious:  I was not utilizing what turned out to be my best talents and qualities!  It soon became clear that my strength lay in my interest in people and in my powers of observation.  I was always curious to know the explanation for “why would John make these particular choices in life?,” or to understand “how did Mary’s experiences in life form her personality?”
Perhaps most importantly, I am, by nature and reason, very non-judgmental of other people.  I was fortunate to be significantly influenced by the events and times that I grew up in (the 1960s), which shaped an attitude of hope for a better world and a strongly held belief that all individuals possessed worthiness and were deserving of respect.  As a result, I have a very flexible attitude regarding individual (and family) choices and lifestyles.  I’m often told that I am warm and easy to talk to.
