Inspiring Stories from Far North

The heart of our mission at VoyageDallas is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the Dallas-Fort Worth area’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool. Check out the rising stars from Far North below.

William DeFoore

I got my M.A. in Clinical Psychology in 1973, and my Ph.D. in 1982. I’ve been in practice as a counselor ever since. I’ve always enjoyed helping people and seeing them overcome their problems.
