Hello! My name is Kelly Richardson

I am a Licensed Psychotherapist as well as a Mom, hence the name “Thera-Mom”.

I live in Northern California with my husband, three kids, and a black lab named Sunshine. I love being a therapist and offering a safe place for people to take their mask off for one hour and just be themselves. As simple as it sounds, it can be life-changing.  I have the privilege every day of watching people’s lives transform as they let go of trying to be who they aren’t and start embracing all that they are. More importantly, I love being a MOM to my active, sport-loving kids- two boys in college (Go Aggies! and Go Hornets!) and one girl in high school (Go Bulldogs!).  Each of my kids is so amazingly different, it’s hard to believe they share the same gene pool.

Like most moms, I wear a lot of hats– sister, daughter, wife, friend, mother, cousin, worker.  Our roles and jobs are varied and in one day we can wear five or ten different hats.  As women, we represent so much within us because each hat matters and each hat allows another side of ourselves to shine.

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–unapologetically and authentically–like in my therapy office.  Walk this crazy journey called life with me, as hectic and stressful as it may seem at times.

Be Your Own Michelangelo

When I was a little girl I was certain I wanted to be Tinkerbell  at Disneyland.   I wanted to wear that cute little green costume, fly over the parade down Main Street and sprinkle pixie dust... for the rest of my life. As I got older, that dream changed.  I went...
