About Me

Hello! My name is Kelly Richardson and I am a Licensed Psychotherapist as well as a Mom, hence the name “Thera-Mom”.  I live in Northern California and I specialize in working with teenagers. I love being a therapist and offering people a safe place to take their mask off for one hour. As simple as it sounds, it can be life changing.  More importantly I love being a MOM.  I have the trifecta right now with my active, sport-loving kids- one in college (Go Aggies!), one in high school (Go Bulldogs!) and one in middle school (Go Cougars!).  Each of my kids is so different, it’s hard to believe they share the same gene pool.  Like most moms, I wear a lot of hats.  Our roles and jobs are varied and in one day we can wear five or ten different hats.

I am new to this whole blog-thing but I am not new to writing about being a parent, raising a family, dealing with teenagers and trying to sneak a few minutes (or long seconds) a day to take care of me.  Let’s be honest- being a Mom is a full time job no matter how old your kids are and finding time to just do you feels impossible. It’s nice to have a place where we can do life together, like in my therapy office.  Walk this crazy journey called life with me–as hectic and stressful as it may seem.  Read my blogs, comment with your thoughts, challenge my thinking, share your ideas and help me, help you. Thank you Jerry Maguire.
