About me

It takes courage to ask for help and to admit that we don't have all the answers. My name is Rick and while I don't have all the answers either, I am an experienced therapist committed to helping people process their history, make sense of their experiences, understand how to change behaviors and to chart a new life path forward. We are all on a journey and need others to support us along the way. I use a cognitive behavioral approach as the foundation to treatment along with solution-focused, client-centered and psychodynamic approaches. More specifically, I am committed to ensuring my clients feel heard, understood and supported able to make informed well grounded decisions in their life. My approach is to create an environment where you can unravel your experiences, understand them in new ways, and gain new insights as a result of deeper understanding.

If you feel that I may be a good fit for you, I look forward to hearing from you.

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

I felt comfortable speaking to Rick in our first interaction and he listened taking into account the difference in our cultures which is great. He spends time trying to understand my culture and background so he can be more helpful.
