Assistant Professor of Clinical Mental Health Counseling
Dr. Eric A. Williams teaches in the clinical mental health counseling program. His time as a counselor has seen him in many places, counseling everywhere from military bases to grade schools. He is credentialed as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor (LCMHCS) and as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of North Carolina.
Eric believes that we are all influenced by and influencing others; he hopes that the clinical mental health program at Huntington University will positively influence students and that that influence trickles down into others in their communities.
A Georgia native, Eric and his wife have three children: twin boys with autism and a neurotypical daughter. As a paratrooper with the US Army, he served on the front lines during 9/11. He is an avid fan of the Georgia Bulldogs, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, and the Atlanta Falcons; any New England Patriots or Alabama fans may not do well in his courses. (He’s kidding. Really.) In his spare time, Eric enjoys playing with his children, blogging, posting inspirational quotes on social media, spending time with friends, serving the autistic community, and working out.
