Rich has been a wonderful support, and has provided excellent guidance, empathy, and understanding. I feel listened to and understood in our sessions, and feel like the tools he has given me and helped me work on have made such a difference to my life.
I cannot recommend Rich highly enough! Thank you.

Rich Painter is everything you'd hope for in a counselor. I feel comfortable and supported sharing heavier thoughts and it is just as easy to talk about lighter topics as well. I feel that even if I don't have a subject in mind to talk about, I still always learn helpful tips to better deal with everyday life situations.

I am very pleased with Rich's therapy approach.
