Therapist in Matthews, North Carolina, Caressa Richardson, MSW, LCSW

Caressa Richardson, MSW, LCSW

Welcome! My practice includes working in children, families, adolescents, and adults. I specialize in anxiety, depression, life transitions, loss and grief, and trauma. I welcome the opportunity to help you overcome challenges and achieve your goals. It can be very hard to ask for help and make changes in your life. I will strive to help work along side you to achieve your happier healthier self.

My therapeutic style is eclectic. There is no “one size fits all” in regard to therapy and I will do my best to tailor treatment based on your specific needs while providing a safe and judgement free zone. I like to pull from several areas that include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused, Mindfulness strategies, Narrative Therapy, and Family Systems, all while using an Empowerment approach.

A little bit about me- I was born and raised in Connecticut. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Connecticut in 2013 and my Master of Social Work degree in 2017 from Winthrop University. In my free time, I enjoy spending my time outdoors with my husband, daughter, and pup, reading, and trying new restaurants.
