I completed seminary and then added courses to become a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri. I am a therapist with 30 years experience in working with clients with many issues., including stress, depression, grief, anger management, self esteem, relationship issues, I had a difficult childhood and worked with youth at a behavioral hospital. I also have worked in an outpatient setting with adults and teens. Clients relate well to me and begin healing in the process of being understood and better grasping their issues. My style is insight oriented, helping clients identify and develop ways to improve. I believe relationships need respect, good communication and a peaceful interaction to thrive. Relationships are a key to fulfillment, including a person's attitude toward themselves. When clients are able to better understand themselves and their goals, they find the counseling experience meaningful.

Very good. Reasonable and compassionate
First session with Rick was great! Already setting me on a better path. Can’t wait for our next session.
I like that Rick really listens to me and our conversations are very comforting. I feel better after each session.
