About me

I knew from the end of my senior year of high school that I wanted to help children and teenagers who are having a hard time. Ever since then, my professional experience and education has been centered around working with youth. My professional experience has been with teenagers that are in very challenging situations and I would like to use that experience to help others live a better life. I primarily operate in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and and Cognitive Behavior Theory. I believe these approaches offer the most comprehensive and efficient solutions in therapy. The training and education that I have received help me be able to help a wide range of issues that many young people face.

Richard is a very thoughtful, kind, and loving therapist. The type of person my son & I both need to guide him onto his life path.

Written on Dec 10, 2022 after therapy with Richard for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and grief

Richard remembers details and facts and is able to continually support my healing. He has great techniques for grounding and meditation that have been very beneficial to guide my process.

I have enjoyed my sessions with Richard. He is a very good listener. It finds my weak areas and that is not easy to do. :-) I also like that he respects and understands my Christians values.
