Richard Dietrich, M.C.

As a Registered Psychologist, I have a Master of Counselling degree specializing in Counselling Psychology. I work with adult individuals addressing a broad range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, stress, relational concerns, PTSD, among others. I have a focus on developmental trauma, which means helping clients address their unhelpful patterns that developed from adapting to difficult childhood experiences. I am also an LGBTQ ally.

I take a client-centered, strengths-based, and outcome-informed approach. I utilize the Therapy Outcome Management System to monitor client progress and to collect feedback from clients about the service they receive, which helps tailor therapy to clients’ unique needs.

Feedback from clients and colleagues about my presence during therapy have included words like “warm, gentle, caring, humorous, insightful, thoughtful, and genuine.” I aim to bring these qualities into the therapy experience so people can feel free of judgment and a strong sense of support in a collaboration for healing.
