Therapist InfoAbout Me:
Hi, I am Rachel Richards, LMHC. It is an honor for me to help each and every client.
Almost 30 years of experience in mental health and a personal commitment to authenticity, honesty and compassion allows me to serve the diverse needs of clients with flexibility and expertise.
I enjoy making genuine connections with people as I believe that it is through connection that we all can heal.
My commitment to providing therapy comes from a deep appreciation for the innate humanness and capacity for healing contained in each individual.Description of Services:
Having a good fit in the client-therapist relationship is integral. Research consistently shows that the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client is one of the primary predictors of client progress in therapy. Potential clients can use the introductory session to ask the therapist questions about their approach to determine whether it would be a good fit for them.
What to expect: Your first therapy session will primarily consist of you giving background information to the therapist. You’ll go over why you want therapy and what your goals are. The therapist will explain their philosophy, their process, and other expectations they have for your work together as you explain your own. If there is a good fit you will schedule follow up sessions. All sessions are conducted online via HIPPA compliant software that protects client confidentiality and private health information.Credentials & Certifications: M.S.

My ProcessOverview of Experience:
Psychedelics can show us things that we might have otherwise been unable to see - things come to the forefront of our consciousness and integrating this experience into one's life requires opening the mind and having support to allow deeper questioning of the self and the world that can lead to dissolution of cultural conditioning and ego.
“Psychedelic experience is only a glimpse of genuine mystical insight, but a glimpse which can be matured and deepened by the various ways of meditation in which drugs are no longer necessary or useful. If you get the message, hang up the phone. For psychedelic drugs are simply instruments, like microscopes, telescopes, and telephones. The biologist does not sit with eye permanently glued to the microscope, he goes away and works on what he has seen.” Alan Watts
