Richard Anthony Robbins VIllarreal
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 98846
I have a passion for working with ADHD, Anxiety disorders, Depression, and Anger Management.
My Approaches and Specialty
I tend to be psychodynamic and client centered in my treatment. What does this mean? I put my clients first and value the therapeutic relationship as a method for change. I integrate empirically evidenced interventions into therapy sessions as we work collaboratively to create and work towards goals. I enjoy working with people of all ages and tend to specialize in working with Attention Disorders, Anxiety, Depression, Mood Disorders and Aspergers. I have advance training in working with Adolescents, young adults and transitional aged youth as well as Educational Related Mental Health.

Education and Background
I earned my Masters in Counseling Psychology from California Baptist University in Riverside, California in 2013.
I completed a traineeship working with Head Start Parents and children to develop behavioral plans, teach parenting classes and provide interventions to promote the success of their children and families well being.
Post Graduate, I worked in a public High School District where I provided individual counseling and assessment for high school students as well as participated in I.E.P. Meetings and assessments for adolescents with mental health concerns. I created support groups for students with ADHD and Social Skills.
To gain more experience I then moved on and worked in a local community mental health clinic where I provided treatment for individuals of all ages, families, couples, children and teens. At this time I also worked with foster youth in a substance abuse residential setting where I provided educational groups, anger management, treatment planning and advocacy.
I now work out of a solo practice in Temecula Ca, and when I'm not in my office you can often find me hiking, camping or riding bicycles with my family.
