Bill Ratliff Headshot

As a retired pastor, working in ministry for 35 years, my passion is helping people find God’s best for them through life coaching and counseling. Life Coaching focuses on a person’s future to train, encourage, motivate, and hold them accountable.  I enjoy teaching skills to assist people in overcoming obstacles that keep them from reaching and fulfilling God’s purpose for their lives. Pastoral counseling focuses on healing hurts in a person’s past to help them solve problems in present life. People can move forward to all that God has intended for them when healing occurs.


I have worked extensively on marriage issues. I have led marriage retreats and seminars. I do marital and pre-marital counseling. I also work with families, adolescents, and men, addressing grief and loss, anger management, and life transitions, to include caring for aging parents and those with developmental disabilities.
