Hi there, I'm Mindy!

My name is Mindy Richard and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California. I have 16 years of experience working with individuals and families in medical and educational settings. My focus is working with clients with emotional challenges such as Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, mood instability, and emotional distress related to coping with illness and injury. My goal is to help each client learn tools to increase their quality of life and decrease emotional distress.

My approach

My therapeutic style is open and engaging. I believe that every individual has strengths within that can be enhanced. I believe in treating every client with dignity and respect. My approach combines person-centered therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral techniques, and motivational interviewing. I like to first understand who you are and work to meet you where you are at. Starting with your strengths and building upon those strengths allows you to have control of your own process. Providing you with the tools and support you need to increase your quality of life and emotional health.

My focus

I am experienced in providing therapeutic support to those struggling with Depression, Anxiety, and mood instability. I have unique experience providing therapeutic support to those suffering from life-threatening diseases such as cancer and other medical ailments.

My communication style

I am very warm and welcoming to all clients. I believe that every client is unique and deserves an approach tailored to their needs. I work to identify your specific needs and provide an environment that meets those specific needs. When working with me you will feel heard and understood.

My journey to mental healthcare

I have always wanted to help people in some way. I became a Social Worker in 2007 with the goal of helping people. During my work as a Social Worker in a trauma center I realized the value of therapy. I became licensed as a therapist in 2013 with the goal of providing therapeutic interventions to clients to increase their emotional health. I continue to do this work as I see the growth in each and every one of my clients and enjoy being a small part of each client's journey in emotional health.

My goals for you

I will work with you to understand your specific ideas of emotional health and wellness. We will utilize your ideal emotional health to set reasonable and obtainable goals together.

My first session with you

During your first session, we will work together to get to know each other. I will work to understand your current emotional struggles and will start to identify your goals for wellness. This will help to build the foundation of our therapeutic relationship.
