William Shearer, Psychologist
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I specialize in addictive and compulsive behavior, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, and couples counseling. I am a veteran psychotherapist and also a university professor, author, and organizational consultant. Licensed in 1977, I have exceptional training and experience, and my lifelong mission is facilitating growth and positive change in others. I currently have over 90,000 hours of experience as a therapist.
I am a psychologist and organizational consultant. I am a former 12th grade United States history teacher, and a retired United States Air Force lieutenant colonel. My training and education have never stopped. I have a doctorate from the University of Tennessee, an MBA from Pepperdine University, and an MPH (Master’s in Public Health) from Loma Linda University. I also have a master’s degree in education, and a doctorate in health services administration. I have worked for over 45 years in the treatment of addictions, and eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa, and Bulimia. Additionally, I specialize in treating stress and anxiety disorders such as generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. More than half of my work is in couples counseling.
I hold licenses in both psychology and marriage and family therapy. I've been a university professor since 1974 in both a psychology graduate program and an MBA program.
I am passionate about helping others grow and make positive changes in their lives. I provide substantial out of session materials and growth producing exercises. I particularly enjoy working with couples and working in collaboration with my wife Robin, also a therapist.
