Richard H. Thornes, Ph.D.
Richard H. Thornes, Ph.D., provides psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and families with an eclectic approach, emphasizing cognitive-behavioral, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Positive Psychology methods and principles. I have over 45 years of experience as a psychotherapist, with experience in a university counseling center, in a community mental health center, with 14 years as an associate professor at Lansing Community College in Michigan, and 38 years in private practice settings.
I do not limit myself to a specific specialty area, but most of my clients present depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, problems in work, and losses of loved ones.
I emphasize the importance of relationship interactions and attachment issues in understanding an individual, identify issues in discovering personal meaning and hope, and seek opportunities for promoting post-traumatic growth and for broadening and building one's personal strengths and potentials.
