My site is undergoing a major transformation for the next two days …
Hello. Welcome to my website.
I’m Dr. Howard Richmond, a medical doctor with a specialty in psychiatry and psychotherapy. I see individuals and couples with an integrative approach that recognizes the power of emotions to drive our perception, shape our reality, and generate physical and psychological symptoms. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone.
Whether we’re facing relationship challenges, struggling with anxiety, battling depression or addictive behaviors, we can all get stuck in negative patterns, doing the same thing over and over. It’s our default, survival, or autopilot mode. Autopilot by the way, in an airplane, is good––except for takeoffs, landings, turbulence and mountains. In life, especially when there is unresolved conflict and hidden emotions, autopilot mode can set us up for a crash.
My passion is teaching others how to shift from autopilot mode to conscious-pilot mode––to integrate our whole being, our body-mind-spirit, in a direction of joy and wellbeing. Though we are hard-wired to repeat patterns deep within our brain, the good news is with proper emotional awareness and training, we can re-wire and improve our job performance, interpersonal relationships, physical health, and quality of life.
Choosing a therapist or psychiatrist is a very important decision that can be life altering. My aim is to always cultivate the utmost trust, compassion and emotional safety with each individual or couple I work with. I invite you to explore my website further.
