About me

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.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Richard Broach. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

We haven’t worked together long. In just a handful of sessions I feel seen and safe. Richard has my healing and growth as his priority in our sessions. He meets me where I am at and sees my potential for growth and recovery. Richard fosters an environment that is non-judgmental, compassionate, educational and consistent.
Thank you!

Having seen a plethora of different mental health professionals throughout my life, Richard was the most welcome breath of fresh air I've experienced in many years. He wasted no time at all in ascertaining exactly not only what was bothering me from a surface-level expression, but to offer more descriptive verbiage as well as extraordinary insights almost immediately. The biggest things I have been missing is an accurate way to speak to my discomfort and specific tools with which to address said discomfort; Richard provided me with mountains of both within the first two sessions!
