Biography

In this work, he brings passion to his core values of warmth, compassion, authenticity, the building of trust, collaboration, cultural sensitivity and safety, and respectfully creating a safe emotional space for his clients. Richard builds strong connections by non-judgmentally validating his clients, to enable them to connect effectively with themselves and others, and thereby feel deeply listened to and understood.
