About Me

My name is Richard Spires and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I believe in the therapeutic alliance. Counseling is a team effort and we get the best results when we work together. Part of my counseling style is that I take the time to get to know you and try to truly understand the issues you are dealing with. I have been to counseling myself I've had lots of experiences where I felt like the therapist wasn't trying to understand my problems . I told myself that when I become a counselor I never want any of my patients to feel like I didn't care. So I take pride in getting to know you and doing my best to understand your problems. So whenever your ready to talk I'm ready to listen.

Richard is a great professional, amazing listener. He offered me a different perspective of things and he is extremely helpful. He sets goals and gives me the tools to achieve them. I always feel comfortable and happy after our sessions.

Caring and responsive. Sense of humor and listens to what needs to be said. Non judge mental and give an overall view of what issues are. Great to talk with. Highly recommend!

Richard is very kind, patient and encouraging.
He has brought up a lot of new ideas on how I cope with anxiety and depression while being understanding of how hard this is.
I highly recommend him!
