I believe in a goal-oriented approach to therapy by helping clients build on their strengths and values distinct to them. I encourage clients to see themselves as unique, creative, and responsible individuals; capable of striving for self-improvement and self-fulfillment. As a therapist, I see a variety of people, focusing on adults with depression and anxiety and the struggles that come along with those feelings. I am passionate about helping everyone find happiness, direction and fulfillment. I see clients with a holistic approach, emphasizing a trusting, respectful relationship, developing and empowering proactive behaviors, while appreciating their individual qualities. I believe fostering effective change is developed with openness and honesty during our sessions- focusing on individual concerns, questions and frustrations and working from there. I realize sometimes it is difficult asking for help, therefore, believe it shows how much clients understand the importance of making intentional efforts to have good health and happiness in life.

I feel like Ricci really listens and connects. Although I have only had a couple sessions, she was able to make some keen insights that have helped me in my daily life. I also feel that Ricci genuinely wants to help me and has the knowledge and skills needed to do so. I will continue our sessions and do the work.

She was awesome, she took the time to actually listen to me and asked questions that helped me look deep inside myself. Was able to get me to see things that I never knew was there and wouldn't of considered. She provided excellent advice and gave me tools and worksheets to help me over come my negative. She saved me and I can't thank her enough. I definitely recommend her.

I’ve been seeing Ricci for about 5 months now. She’s absolutely lovely and has been super helpful with teaching me skills to cope with anxiety. Couldn’t recommend her more!
