About Dr. Richard

Dr. Richard’s development as a therapist began many years ago. One of the biggest difficulties was learning to understand many of life’s hardships were the training necessary to answer the Call to assist others.

Transpersonal Psychology came into my life at a time when everything was good except me. Beautiful wife, thriving young adult child, successful business. I had the big house on the 9th hole of the golf course, multiple cars, closets stuffed full, and enough money so that finances were an after-thought.

I just wasn’t happy.

My biggest lesson was learning to create happiness rather than awaiting a sense of happiness that was suppose to come in the next purchase. Happiness was always to come in the next acquisition: that happiness never happens.

Let Dr. Richard assist you in addressing childhood instability, paternal abandonment, betrayal, commitment, relationships, parenting struggles.

You’re accomplished, you’ve played by the rules, you’ve maximized your professional potential, you make good business decisions, on the surface your life is in order. Perhaps you struggle in relationships, in the midst of a crowd you sometimes feel alone, despite the well put together presentation you feel drained, listless, unfulfilled.

Maybe you have growing concerns for your children. Your child appears to struggle, begins making poor, and often dangerous, decisions. Your child begins to struggle academically, appears to lack motivation, expresses in anger or uncaring about anything important.
