Clinical Director

Rich is not taking new clients currently.


My professional path has included a law degree and litigation practice.  I graduated with an M.A. in Rehabilitation Counseling in 1992.  Soon thereafter, I had a serious burn injury that required months of healing and rehabilitation.   I am now a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.  I have been adjunct faculty at the Department of Education at Drake University.  Currently I have my own private practice in West Des Moines, Iowa.

In meeting with a client it is important to accept the person exactly where they are, in a safe and non-judgmental space where we can explore their issues, find and nurture hope, and together work toward growth and equanimity.  As a counselor, my job is to hear, accept and understand my client as a whole person and provide strategies to achieve their goals.  Growth, healing and change can be challenging and may take hard work on the part of the client and the counselor.  I am honored to be a part of that process with my clients.
