About Me

Thank you for inquiring as to what I can offer in your quest for a professional therapist. My name is Richlyn Fletcher and I have served in the helping profession as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 20 plus years. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree from Buffalo State College in Social Work and a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Fordham University in New York City.

Working in New York City has allowed me to service clients from various ethnic backgrounds, cultures and belief systems. Therefore, my approach is holistic in nature and I incorporate music, movement, art, etc. when appropriate to help with expression and to create change in the healing process. I draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness Therapy as well as individual strengths as techniques utilized to best reach your goals.

Richlyn has been very helpful even in the short time I have worked with her. She offers helpful insight and allows me to see things about myself I had not noticed previously. She is warm and smart and truly enjoy her expertise and methods.

Richlyn has been very helpful! She listens, tailors advice to me, and always helps to guide me to find solutions or make connections to things without directly telling me the answers. She's also extremely responsive to questions and any comments I may have.

In the short amount of time that I've been talking to Richlyn, she's been so helpful and has great advice. I've been able to smooth out some kinks in my relationship with my husband. I love the goals that she helps me reach every week as well. Over all I'm very happy with our sessions and look forward to continuing our work together.
