Torey C. Richards, LMHC
Hi, thanks for taking the time to get to know me!
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida and behavior scientist currently specializing in mental disorders and adolescent mental health.
I’m a Certified E-Therapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Qualified Supervisor for Registered Mental Health Interns in the state of Florida.
I received a B.A. in psychology from the University of Central Florida in 2002, and a M.S. in counseling & psychology from Troy State University in 2007.
I’ve been licensed mental health counselor since 2012.
My experience include working in both an inpatient and outpatient substance abuse facility, a crisis unit at a psychiatric hospital and working at an inner-city high school helping teenagers with anger management, substance abuse, anxiety, depression and other issues.
Currently I serve as the Director of Mental Health at a county jail as well as independent private practice.
My theoretical orientation is eclectic with strong influences from cognitive behavioral, existential, rational emotive behavioral, motivational interviewing, positive psychology and acceptance & commitment therapy.
I am an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction books. I also enjoy working out, writing, photography and art in my spare time.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you will participate in the discussions.
