I was intimidated to start therapy for the first time, but Rich has made the process easy and encouraging. He has helped me build confidence to know that I'm able to take better control of my own mental health.

Richard has helped me tremendously! I have been to a few other therapist and no one has listened and cared like he does. He is very encouraging and never judges. He gives advice and sends links to articles to backup his advice. He has been the best therapist I’ve ever been to.

Richard Barbee is wonderful! In all my years of therapy, I've never had anyone whom I feels listens so attentively and follows up with me. I have learned even more about myself and possibly why I am the person I am. He puts things in perspective, and I'm seeing a lot of growth through our sessions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking therapy.
