Richard M. Burleigh, PLPC
I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from Kaplan University in Criminal Justice where I focused my coursework on forensic psychology. My Master’s of Science degree was obtained from Walden University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am licensed as a Provisional Licensed Professional Counselor by the Louisiana Licensed Professional Counselor Board of Examiners.
I believe in working with clients to identify problem situations currently impacting their lives. Together, we will develop goals and work toward achieving those goals with open and honest communication. I focus on clients with a variety of mental, emotional, and behavioral struggles. My work experience also involves counseling individuals with multiple diagnoses. My approach to counseling is born from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. This simply means that I work with clients to identify patterns of thoughts and actions in order to understand presenting problems fully and develop solutions. I conduct psychotherapy (talk therapy) in individual, couples, family, and group settings. I work with clients of all backgrounds beginning at age 10 through adulthood. For clients under age 10, exceptions can be made on a case by case basis and with additional stipulations which will be discussed at time of scheduling.
Personal, dedicated, and professional
