About Kathy Richardson
- Individual Counseling
Kathy Richardson has more than 30 years of experience providing counseling and psychotherapy to adults. Her areas of specialization are ADD/ADHD, anxiety, and major life transitions.
Mrs. Richardson uses elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and family systems therapy in her work.
CBT is a heavily researched and popular form of psychotherapy that links our thoughts to our feelings and behaviors. If we’re able to challenge our distorted or irrational thoughts, and replace them with more rational ones, we may be able to change our resulting feelings and behaviors.
CBT has been found to be particularly helpful in the treatment of anxiety and depression.
A native of Massachusetts, Mrs. Richardson has a master’s degree in social work from Simmons College (Mass.). She also completed two years of specialty training with children at the Tufts New England Medical Center, as well as two years of family systems training at the Family Institute of Cambridge.
Mrs. Richardson offers daytime and evening hours. She provides teletherapy, or online therapy, via Doxy and Zoom.
