About Me

Hello! I am a Marriage & Family Therapist licensed in the State of Alabama. I have worked in the social service field for more than 20 years and have worked through a wide range of concerns. Being a teen is difficult and many adults talk as if they have forgotten the pressures of this age span. In teen counseling and problem-solving, I like to focus on the here-and-now actions of the client and their ability to create and choose a better future. I like to help clients discover what they really want and how their current actions are more or less useful in obtaining their goal.

I work with individuals, couples, and families- my specialty is relationships. Intra-personal relationships, personal relationships, or social relationships they are all important. So whether you are on an introspective journey, or an individual navigating life with friends; perhaps you are partners doing life together, having intimate, satisfying and responsive relationships is crucial. I have experience in working with issues of controlling parents, difficult communication with parents, anxiety, transitions spirituality, and more. I have been in the helping business for a while now.

My therapy style is professional yet warm and interactive. I offer a holistic counseling experience; that combines attachment theory, structural family therapy and emotionally focus therapy principles, helping clients to develop mere useful interactional patterns of behavior in their relationships, overcome their challenges to achieve their personal goals and improve their competence, capacity, and productivity.

I look forward to working with you!

I have enjoyed talking with him, he's personable and he's so easy to talk to. Couldn't ask for a nicer therapist.

Tj woke up with his face balled up. Soon after speaking to you, he was talking to me and laughing. He also expressed that he likes you! So that’s a great thing! Didn’t know i’d see results so soon! Thank you for being present!

Eric is very sharp. After a single session, we are already working through reframing my thoughts. Seeking help with trauma, but also receiving help about work. I will say other counselors have been more flexible with schedule.

The best decision I've ever made is to choose teen counseling. Eric Richardson is the therapist that was selected for me. He has been more than helpful in assisting me in navigating me through this difficult time in my life. I would definitely recommend his light-hearted therapy approach to anyone.

Eric Richardson is very attentive and he listens to get an understanding. He does positive reinforcement and ask questions to get an understanding. He provides questions to get us to think about.

Eric is a great listener and makes you feel at ease in his therapy approach. He listens, is empathetic and I appreciate his use of faith to bolster the therapy experience. I am very glad he was assigned to me during this difficult season in my life.

Best therapist I’ve ever had.
Strongly understands my concerns and helps me works through my issues. Goes above and beyond and responds very quickly. Can’t suggest him enough.

He is very knowledgeable, empathetic and hands on in his approach. I left my first few sessions with techniques that I can use daily.
