About Ellsworth “Tony” Williams

As a retired Army combat Veteran with 24 years of distinguished service, I’ve experienced firsthand the challenges and triumphs
of Military life. My journey, from the frontlines to the field of Clinical Mental Health Counseling, is fueled by a relentless commitment to serve — a commitment inherited from my father, a fellow Army veteran.

Earning a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health
Counseling from Troy University, a CACREP accredited institution, equipped me with the knowledge and skills to make a tangible difference in the lives of Veterans and their families.

The transition from Military life to civilian existence can be daunting. Recognizing this, I founded Veterans Counseling Veterans (VCV), a501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to bridging the gap between Veterans and mental health support. Our focus? Veteran suicide prevention, intervention, awareness, postvention, and providing essential support in cases of Military sexual trauma

At VCV, we believe in the power of shared experiences. That’s why our team comprises Military Veterans and spouses of Veterans, all professionals in the behavioral health field. We’re not just counselors and advocates; we are peers who understand the unique challenges of Military life.

“We are all Family, and we Take Care of Our Own.”
This motto encapsulates our mission at VCV. We offer Veterans the choice of behavioral health providers with Military experience and create a collaborative space for professionals with shared backgrounds to network, share ideas, and advocate for each other.

As a Florida Veterans Hall of Fame inductee, I am honored for my contributions in mental health. Yet, the true reward is seeing fellow Veterans and their families find the support and understanding they need.

Whether you’re a Veteran seeking support, a professional in the behavioral health field, or someone passionate about Veteran welfare, I invite you to connect with me. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who have served our nation.
