Richards

Dory Richards has been freeing people from the obstacles that hold them back at her clinic in Spring Hill, Florida since August of 2017.Though Dory has been practicing as a therapist since 2012, her journey truly began as a child. She always knew she had a calling to help people heal, but her brother had told her that nursing would never be for her.Dory brings a warm, compassionate, and caring energy to her clients. She specializes in improving self-worth, helping couples and families resolve conflicts and develop powerful communication skills, effective parenting strategies, making life transitions, reducing anxiety, and creating healthy boundaries. Most importantly, she instills hope, help you create possibilities, and develops a sense of inner peace. Her counseling philosophy is to listen without judgment and try to understand who you are, walk alongside you with compassion, and provide guidance and authentic feedback by coaching you through the process to create solutions.Dory uses a Gottman technique when taking care of her patients. Combined with cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-based Christian counseling, Dory is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good mental health. This combined technique eliminates those obstacles of fear, depression, and anxieties that tend to hold us back.Education:2012 Liberty University Earned M.A. degree in Marriage and Family TherapyLicensure:

Sean

Sean is known to be motivational yet laid back, and for the way he always has others laughing with his witty sense of humor. He is certified as a Gottman Seven Principles Leader. This is the technique he has been using to help his clients achieve breakthroughs in their marriages and help to build power couples since 2021.Sean recognizes that sometimes, we feel buried and surrounded by walls that we can’t move. His aspiration is to help his clients regain the power and hope they have lost. Whether that is hope in their relationships, themselves, their careers, or battles with addiction, we often focus on the problem, rather than the solution. His strength-based solution-focused approach offers his clients, the tools that they need to learn to take small steps in the right direction to achieve their goals to create a better future.When not seeing clients, Sean enjoys outdoor adventures. He is very nature-oriented and feels that nature has so much to offer us when it comes to learning and healing.
