About me

After more than 18 years in the counseling fields as a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in Wisconsin, my approach to collaborating with clients has a two-fold approach. First, I believe in a holistic approach. Almost every problem we experience has various pieces. Somewhat like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, the pieces need to be laid out and evaluated to see the relationships among them to come up with solutions. This includes the present moment, our upbringing, our current employment, our own relationships, stresses past and present, any traumatic experiences we’ve had, etc. My second approach flows from the first belief in a holistic treatment. I encourage clients to develop a SANE lifestyle. Evidenced research shows a direct link among the elements of Sleep, Activities, Nutrition, and Exercise to our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. I embody what I encourage others to do. I also believe the path to wholeness lies within each of us and through the experience of heartfelt conversations we find that power within to bring about our own healing.

Written on Jan 25, 2023 after therapy with Richard for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Richard is extremely understanding and extremely knowledgeable about many things beyond his profile description. He is extremely respectful of your ideas and works hard to learn with you in order to communicate and recontextualize in the best way for you. I highly recommend him.

Richard is an extremely kind, caring, and truthful therapist. He has really helped me navigate my own thoughts and rework my mindset. I would recommend his services to anyone! He never falls short on the number of acronyms he seems to know, which are always very helpful.

I have only been seeing Richard for a month and he has already helped me so much. He is very knowledgeable in the field and does a great job listening to my thoughts, reframing and reaffirming what I have said, and asking meaningful thought provoking questions.

I find Richard very thoughtful and responsive; he's very helpful in getting me to brainstorm a path forward when all the options I'd considered so far seemed suboptimal.

Work with me!
