Bill Munze

Psychotherapist, Coach, Consultant

About Me


I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), a Certified Clinical Professional Counselor (CCPC), and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I help people of all ages to cope with the challenges they face in work, school, and everyday life. I devote a portion of my practice to helping young adults, college and university undergraduate and graduate students. I operate practices in both Massachusetts and Maine.

I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, where I majored in Psychology and developed my interest in helping others. I went on to receive a Masters of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.


My approach is always tailored to the needs and style of each client. I engage every client with warmth and a strong relational connection. Sessions with me are typically interactive.

I often incorporate elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) into my practice. In addition, I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and I have seen dramatic results from its use, helping clients to overcome longstanding problems much more rapidly than with traditional therapeutic techniques.

I began my career in mental health in 1991, working for several human services agencies in NY and MA. In 2008 I founded Aspire Counseling and have worked as a private practitioner and a coach and consultant ever since.


I have devoted my career to assisting and enabling people and organizations to realize their potential. I am a consultant and coach to business leaders, and design and deliver leadership training programs in partnership with Burnham Rosen Group, a boutique consulting firm. I also support corporate clients in hiring and developing superior performing talent by conducting competency assessments of senior leader candidates and high-potential leaders seeking development.

From 2000-2007 I was a faculty member at Northeastern’s prestigious Cooperative Education program for the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, where I built numerous partnerships between the university and Fortune 500 companies.
