Biography

I am a Marriage & Family Therapist of over 20 years. Although my college education taught me a lot, most of my learning and personal growth came from my own life experiences and working with clients for over 20 years. This doesn't mean I know everything, just that I know almost anything can happen in our lives.

Some experiences like getting married or having children are expected, but the most challenging ones are often those unexpected turns life hands us that can throw us for a loop. I personally believe that within each of us is the resilience to overcome obstacles. At times, we just need someone else to help guide and encourage us along life's path and that's where I come into the picture for you.

My clients have always told me that they feel 'hopeful' after first meeting with me. I thinks it's because I believe in the ability to endure, to heal and to make decisions in our life that can finally free us from old habits, mindsets and attitudes that have kept us unwittingly stuck. Know this about my process of therapy, I'm going to help you figure out what you're having issues with and then work together to find solutions to get you onto the path that you're most comfortable. This isn't about doing the same old things and hoping for better outcomes, rather finding out the possibilities that may take you out of your comfort zone toward that place you've wanted to live.

I am very experienced working with marital/ relationship issues including: adjustment- premarital and newly weds, divorce, remarriage, adultery recovery, blended family, communication/ conflict resolution and anger management/ domestic violence. I have also done a lot of work addressing anxiety, depression, trauma/ survivor, family of origin and adolescent issues.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you for a season to help you through whatever life is currently handing you.

Best Wishes,Rick Vassar, LMFT

This man is the best therapist I've ever been to. Hugely helpful. The most productive sessions. Highly recommended.

I have found Rick to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. He is very direct which I think is exactly what a counselor should be. And though he is very professional he is personal in a way that does not over step and boundaries and is very interested in helping. Cant say enough about him. Of all of the counselors I have ever been to, he is by far my favorite!!
