Dr. Lyneia Richardson, PhD
"I am here to help Mamas find their way back- or to a place where they feel (re)connected to their mind, body, and spirit. I believe in empowering mothers to reclaim themselves on this journey to healing."
Dr. Richardson is a licensed psychologist with nearly 10 years of therapy experience working in a variety of clinical and community settings.
Her approach is integrative and holistic, placing special emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, the interpersonal process and cultural diversity.
Additionally, she uses a client-centered approach acknowledging the client as the expert of their own life. She has always highlighted the lived experiences of women in her research and clinical work, particularly those from the African diaspora.
As a new mother, Dr. Richardson recognizes that mothering is not an individual experience but one of community. She envisions creating a sacred space where the stigma surrounding how one "should" feel or be following childbirth, being a mother, a spouse, etc. is broken and replaced with compassion.
