Richard Hodges, PsyD (LPC)

Currently, I have earned a doctoral degree in psychology and am in the process of becoming a Licensed Psychologist. I also have master’s degrees in clinical and counseling psychology and a master’s degree in business administration. Since beginning my studies in psychology, I have worked in two hospitals, a university counseling center, and two psychotherapy clinics. On a volunteer basis, I have overseen twelve-step addiction groups, groups addressing grief, and a homeless shelter. Prior to my career in psychology, I was an executive overseeing international and domestic human resources.

At WKM Psychology Clinics, I work with adults, couples, and adolescents dealing with mood issues such as depression and anxiety, trauma, and personality functioning. I also assist clients going through life transitions, including moving through various stages of life, career transitions, and chronic illness. My approach to psychology is based on valuing the client and recognizing their role as an “expert” on themselves and a partner in the journey to new insights and new experiences. My orientation is cognitive-behavioral, relational, and existential. In therapy, I consider and incorporate spiritual issues to the extent the client wishes. I am also trained in administering and interpreting several psychological instruments. These include assessing cognitive and personality functioning that is useful for diagnosis, evaluation of learning disabilities, and treatment planning.
