My name is Dr. Recco Richardson, Ph, D. and I am a clinical therapist who specializes in equipping children and teenagers with the tools they need to have more successful, balanced lives. With 25 years of experience, I love working with adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, poor decision making, bipolar and other symptoms. As well, I utilize traditional counseling approaches/techniques and play therapy methods such as music, coloring books, stuffed animals, and shooting hoops in my office in order to create a safe environment in which children and adolescents are comfortable discussing their concerns and developing behavior modification strategies. As a veteran in the mental health field, I also have over 15 years of supervising experience over aspiring counselors who are seeking an additional degree or certification or over co-workers who report directly to me.
Between my three offices located in Flint, Flushing and Clarkston, Michigan, I see over 400 clients per month in individual, group, and/or family counseling and I take pride in their personal successes that we achieve together. ADHD, Anger, Bipolar, Oppositional Defiance, Anxiety, Autism, Depression and others are disorders that I am well-acclimated with, able to diagnosis and treat effectively. While these conditions are a part of the children’s lives that I see in counseling, they do not make up the totality of life. Together, my clients and I set measurable goals towards a desired outcome and make action steps accordingly to achieve them. This system of accountability is best seen with me, versus a parent or a sibling, because I serve as an unbiased party who simply listens to the grievances of the client while offering reasonable solutions.
Whether it is online, over the phone or face to face, your family may be in need of counseling and together, we can improve the environment in your home and provide the social and emotional skills that your family needs. These skills include but are not limited to:
1. Venting properly
2. Accepting discipline
3. Letting things go
4. Getting along with others
5. Avoiding drama
6. Managing anger
7. Parenting defiant children
