About Me

I have been a professional counselor for the past 6 years. I have worked in hospital settings, forensic (court mandated work), as well as private practices. I work from an existential focus, and believe in helping others make meaning out of the world they live in can help in connecting to their true sense of purpose and being. I believe that the best therapy is based on authenticity, trust, and honesty with each other. I also consider best practices as working with the client as a team. By allowing the client to be their most honest selves during session, we allow for optimum growth, and long lasting change. If you feel that we would make a great team, I definitely want to hear from you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Richard McCoy. 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.

Written by S.A. on May 20, 2022 after therapy with Richard for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and bipolar disorder

Richard's knowledge with trauma and dealing with bipolar disorder is vast. He is very supportive and I can't imagine having someone else as my therapist. He is wonderful!
