Many challenges confront therapists today that force us to stretch our thinking.  Is it possible to be an effective therapist, run a business,  navigate HIPAA, Medicaid, and the  insurance industry.  And then add the challenges of dealing with more personality disorders, sexual issues, and the challenges of working with more  diverse families.   Richard has worked in the industry for over 25 years .  He is a licensed professional  counselor, nationally certified counselor, certified clinical hypnotherapist, certified clinical partner specialist, and a certified clinical sexual addiction specialist.  Richard has supervised many therapists for  licensure with the state of Georgia.  He also does supervision and   training around the United States for sexual addiction specialists.  Richard has  worked with a variety of issues around family law, and working with children and adolescents.   There will also be discussion around maintaining personal safety and ethics.  This will be a unique approach to ethics with lots of lively discussion around complex issues.
