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 wide range of concerns. 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 infidelity, parenting, communications, anxiety, transitions spirituality, premarital, and more. For more than 20 years, I have been in the helping business.
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!

Mr. Richardson was the best thing for me, I’ve been so against therapy my whole life and now look forward to meeting with him every week. He is exceptional at listening to you and talking in a way that is comprehensive and helpful… It doesn’t matter what your reason to go to therapy is, everyone should consider Mr. Richardson

I’ve always wanted to try therapy but I was scared of it being too invasive. I’ve been very comfortable. I’m leaning how to be a better human, wife, mother … Mr. Richardson provides useful tools that are now apart of my every day practice. I am so glad I started this journey. I should have done this years ago. Better late than never!
