Learn more about Rick Richert

I am experienced at helping individuals experiencing trauma and trauma-related issues, depression, anxiety, grief, and addiction.  I am also experienced at using cognitive behavioral approaches in therapy, as well as Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) to help with the painful sensations, memories, and emotions associated with trauma. Plus, my office is in delightful Dunedin, Florida and near Clearwater, Palm Harbor, Safety Harbor, Oldsmar, and Tarpon Springs, Florida.

I retired from active-duty Air Force service in 2002, and from the Department of Defense civil service in 2015.  Over the course of my life I have developed a real passion to help other people understand and overcome mental health issues that arise from trauma, childhood, stress, or “out of nowhere”. Furthermore, I have gained quite a bit of experience working with individuals addicted to drugs or alcohol.

I am surely a committed evangelical Christian, with Christian values. Like many individuals, I am familiar with the challenges presented in our hectic, chaotic world. I have learned that sometimes it helps to sit and talk through issues with another individual. I look forward to helping anyone who comes my way sift through their decisions, concerns, and new ideas based upon their own value system.

If you think I can help you in any way, please give me a call.
