I am ready to partner with you as we commit to your growth as a person and professional. It takes great courage to sit with another person and share what you have kept dormant. Often times this includes a secret carefully stowed, aspirations and dreams waiting to ignite, and your deepest desires for connection, belonging, and purpose. I work hard at earning your trust, devote the time and resources to grow as a clinician, have a team of mentors and consultants, and built the foundation of my skills in the most challenging/rewarding training environments. My success is only possible when current/previous clients are soaring!

I may be a great fit if you are looking to: explore your career, bring your authentic self to romantic and platonic relationships, prepare for or in a current life transition (marriage, children/parenting), find adaptive ways to manage stress, maintain a balance of mind-body in demanding environments (school, workplace, relationship, family of origin).

I am available for daytime appointments in Evanston (M-Th), Wicker Park (F), and Logan Square (Sa). I offer a free phone or virtual consultation. Please take advantage of this! It would give us both sense of how quickly and comfortable we can begin. E-mail, call or text rich.espinal@onelifehealing.com or 312-586-8721. Servicios son ofrecidos en espanol.

Estoy listo para unirme y dedicarnos a fortalecer su vida personal y profesional. Se requiere bastante valor en sentarse con otra persona y compartir lo que se ha mantenido latente. Algunas veces esto puede incluir un secreto cuidadosamente guardado, aspiraciones y sueños esperando ser encendido, y sus deseos más profundos de realizar conexión, dirección, y su propósito en esta vida. Yo me dedico a ganar su confianza, dedicar el tiempo y recursos necesario para mi propio crecimiento, tengo un equipo de consultores y educadores, y logre construir la fundación de mis capacidades en ambientes clínicos rigurosos y gratificantes.

Sin embargo, mi éxito solo es posible cuando mis clientes son exitosos en logrando sus metas. Seriamos buenos compañeros si quisiera: explorar su carrera, auténticamente conectar con otros, prepararse para o está en una transición (matrimonio, paternidad), manejar el estrés de una manera más positiva, lograr sentir balance y equilibrio en su vida.

Me ha encantado, y me ha traído mucho orgullo, servir a la comunidad latina, hispana, y caribeña. Estoy disponible durante el día en Evanston (lunes-jueves), Wicker Park (viernes), y Logan Square (sábado). Ofrezco una consulta gratuita. Nos daría la oportunidad de conocernos y si es apropiado tomar los próximos pasos juntos. El mejor contacto seria e-mail.

Professional Connections

In dealing with the subtleties, nuances, and complexities of human problems, Rich is as attentive and smart as they come. And he understands what all sought-after therapists understand: Doing this work is a privilege. It is a privilege to bear witness to people's stories, both joyful ones and painful ones. Rich takes this privilege seriously and acts on it to help transform lives in a variety of contexts (individual, couples, families, and groups). And he does all of this, I will add, with warmth and from his good nature.

Rich's presence as a person and as a therapist is calm, nonjudgmental and warm. He is a person I feel comfortable recommending to anyone as he is client-focused and works with integrity and openness.
