I believe through my own life experiences and transitions, better equipped me as a counselor to be sensitive to the need of my clients and extend a fresh wind of hope! I have worked with clients for over 10+ years dealing with trauma, marriage conflicts, depression, and life transitions. I am passionate about my role advocating for you to apply the tools learned through our sessions to your daily life. The first step is calling to schedule your appointment today!
Have you ever wondered, "What is going on with my child?" "I don't know if this is normal behavior?" "I am at a lost and don't know what to do?" Hi, my name is Richard, and I am a therapist who works with children as young as 3, preteens, teens, and adults. I help people work through their emotions, anxiety, and behaviors that lead to feeling stress. Play therapy and regular talk therapy offer a way to explore these questions in a creative and safe space. I believe in allowing a person to examine their life story and see the paths taken to end up where they are now.
Are you feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or stressed? Have you or your child experienced a traumatic event and/or abuse? I am here to help you work through these difficulties and improve your quality of life! I approach therapy in a compassionate, non-judgmental manner, which allows a safe environment where healing and growth can take place. I have found that using a combination of Interpersonal, Cognitive Behavioral, Experiential Reframing, and Trauma-Focused therapy techniques can be extremely effective in helping others overcome their difficulties and experience the peace and contentment that they seek.
I work with ages 8 to 99, on issues including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, stress,grief, trauma and anger management. I employ an eclectic approach to therapy to adapt to the unique needs of each client. I draw from several modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused and narrative therapies and family systems. I work with children using play therapy. I encourage and support additional ways to promote good emotional health including humor. Laughter boosts the immune system, relieves physical tension and leaves you more relaxed.
Amidst a world of continuously changing life circumstances, unexpected hurts, and complex relationships, it is only natural for you to feel weary. Possibly you've identified the problem, yet you don't know where to go from there. Regardless of the difficulty you may be facing, I long to enter into your life and walk with you towards growth. Because I believe we heal in the context of relationships, my hope is that our relationship can provide a safe context for you to let go of your burdens and experience wholeness. As a companion on your journey, I am passionate about promoting a safe place for you to experience transformation.
Now I work with adults, including senior citizens. I work with grief, depression, anxiety, aging, and relational issues. Training, personal experience, and professional practice have tended to focus my attention and work in those areas. I start with an assessment of a person's issues and their strengths to cope with those issues. Together, we develop other strengths that are needed. I see my task as that of a navigator to help you, as the driver, find the best path to achieve your goals, traveling at your most appropriate speed. I help you watch for obstacles and deal with them.
I enjoy helping overfunctioners live a more balanced life. Another way to think of it is if you struggle with perfectionism and overachieving to the point of stress/exhaustion or anxiety/depression, I can help you learn to love and accept yourself as you are and be okay with using self-care and asking for help when you need it! I am also passionate about working with teens preparing for or adjusting to college and helping people manage tough life transitions, overcome self-criticism, learn when and how to say ‘no’ (set boundaries) so that you can start saying ‘yes’ to yourself, and work through past traumas.
My approach to working with clients is to prioritize finding their strengths. Often times, people look at seeking mental health treatment as an indication that something is wrong or lacking within. Instead, I work with individuals and their communities to bridge their strengths as a vehicle to their healing. Further, working with me is a collaborative process where we will use your self-awareness to guide the content and goals of our work together.
Recovery is possible! We are all capable of changing, healing, and growing. I support adults, couples, and families who are experiencing relational conflict, depression, grief, anxiety, life stress, life transitional periods (e. g. divorce, job loss, midlife transformations), serious mental illness, and other struggles as well. I am especially passionate about supporting adults recovering from substance use disorders (addiction) and their families.
Do you feel anxious, depressed, or just lacking in something you cannot define? Are you tired of feeling stuck or searching for meaning that seems distant? Instead of scrolling through more therapist lists, are you ready to make a profound connection and to take the next step forward in your journey? If so, then I encourage you to contact me to allow me the privilege of joining you on your path. Together we can find the answers you seek.
