After more than 20 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.

I didn’t have much luck with past therapists. I was skeptical to try out better help but I’m so glad I did! He is the best help I’ve ever received! You know he’s not in it for the money, he truly just loves helping people! Really understands and is there to see you succeed! And when I couldn’t afford it for awhile. When I came back, he’s still available to help me! Highly recommend him!

Finding Richard as a therapist was nothing short of having an angel come into my life during a very hard time. I haven't had the greatest luck finding compatible therapists in the past, so I've tended to avoid therapy altogether. Richard was an exception and has offered insights into my life and past that are facilitating positive change at a time when I need it more than ever.

Richard is a great listener who acknowledged the concerns I had. Having had therapy before with another organization, there is a significant difference between the professional and technical knowledge between Richard and the other organization's therapists. He has decades of experience in psychiatric nursing and has decades of Spanish speaking skills, making him a great therapist for Spanish speaking individuals. could not recommend Richard enough.
