About Richard

I am a veteran of the United States Air Force, grieved the loss of children, survived a marital separation, and after 20 years of marriage, I am happier now than I have ever been.  I have peace.

 

I was trained as a Marriage and Family Therapist in collaboration with Friends University and Christ First Counseling Center in Topeka.   My qualifications include a Masters in Science in Marriage and Family Therapy with a license to practice in Kansas, a B.A. in Elementary Education and years of experience as a Registered Nurse in both ICU and mental health. I have been married for twenty years, have lost three children, am the father of a living son, and survived a marital separation.

I will not ask you to do what I haven’t done myself; and what I have done is found peace, purpose, love, joy and understanding.  A therapist helped me get there. Though able to help with many things, my particular areas of expertise are relationship difficulty, sexual intimacy, career, existential distress (god, purpose, meaningful living, etc) , and parenting.

I can be reached directly (including text) at 913-271-7099 or by email at richard@cfhtherapy.com
