warm, skilled, empathic psychotherapist
Description (2950 characters max)
Each day can be a new opportunity or a reenactment of the past. We enter into relationships with hope only to find ourselves falling into familiar patterns that undermine them. When we are engulfed by depression, overwhelmed by our anxieties, dictated to by our compulsion to drink, use drugs, act out sexually, overeat, gamble, or surf the web endlessly, we are in the grip of patterns that undermine our lives. Richard has over 42 years experience helping individuals, both men and women, cope with depression, anxiety, grief, anger, recovery from addictions and the profound injuries of childhood abuse and neglect. He also helps couples deal with conflict and change. He earned his master's degree in 1982 with a thesis on marital counseling, has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 1984, has taught at Sonoma State University and California State University, Hayward, and is an associate of the Men's Center for Counseling and Psychotherapy.
