Can Beginning Counseling Therapy with Richard Chandler, MA, LPC, Help Me?

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, (LPC), I personally do not work under a medical model. Therapy instead is based more on helping clients come to a new understanding of their thinking, emotions, relationships and whatever life challenges they are grappling with.

Working together could help clear the way for you to resolve difficulties to move forward in more creative and empowering ways. This is a very different approach than treating mental illness such as anxiety or depression.

My clients appreciate that I don't see them and their challenges as mental illness diagnoses. Instead, we collaborate by co-creating new ways of thinking, communicating and being. We discover new insights and understanding to intelligently think and skillfully do things in an empowering way... a more intentional and effective way. I hope we might work together to improve your life so your relationships become more optimal and the pain you have been experiencing fades.
