About me

Hello and welcome! I'm glad you made the decision to seek help. You did the right thing.

My name is Rick Haynes. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years of experience helping people solve life's problems. I am certain that with time and working together, I can help you as well. Life can be challenging and overwhelming at times making us feel depressed and anxious. Frequently, our mind seems to have a mind of its own, dwelling on worry and indecision. At those times, we suffer emotionally and aren't at our best either at home or work. Our self-esteem takes a hit, and we feel defeated. By reaching out for help, you have taken the first step toward feeling better.

I believe a trusting therapeutic relationship forms the basis for someone to share thoughts and emotions and change her or his life for the better. Our sessions will provide you a safe place to explore your emotions and solve problems. Our starting point will be where you are now, work at pace you find comfortable, and discover ways for you to take charge and begin to feel better. You may feel stuck today, but with effort you will get unstuck.

I find a combination of interventions from cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness exercises, and supportive psychotherapy to be most helpful to clients. In concert, this skill set helps a person change how they think, which changes how they feel and behave. We will set goals and solve problems in this practical hands-on manner. When you are ready, I may ask you to keep a journal of your thoughts. Awareness of your thinking patterns will be essential.

If my experience and approach is what you are searching for, I would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
