Richard is a Board Certified Psychotherapist with over 25 years experience as a counselor, therapist, consultant, instructor and program manager in the fields of mental health and chemical dependency in Washington D.C., Northern Virginia and South Florida.
His primary counseling specialties are relationships, couples counseling and men’s issues. Other specialties include anxiety disorders and addictions.
Richard’s other special therapy interests are attachment issues, emotionally focused therapy and the use of mindfulness, meditation and mind-body approaches.
Richard created a self-help model called “Who’s In Charge?” This simple tool helps people to understand their internal parts — the Child, Teen, Critic and Adult. This helps people understand where certain feelings or behavior patterns originate. This same tool is easily used to make positive life changes.
