More about me
Years in Practice: 3
I’d like to start by introducing myself. My name is Anela Richie. I was born in Hawaii and raised walking distance from the Joshua Tree National Park. Not long after graduating high school, I decided to join the United States Air Force. After being medically retired after 17 years I went to work for a large defense contractor, though I still felt the need to do more to help people, especially my fellow veterans and their families. My passion has always been helping people, even while in the military. Helping people realize their true potential, find their happiness or work through what they could not go a minute without thinking about; no matter what it may be.
So, I set out on a new adventure and career by enrolling in school at Argosy University. Throughout school I set out to help fellow Veterans get re-acclimated to civilian life by volunteering for local veteran’s organizations. Additionally, I volunteered for a local foster family agency working with families to complete their resource family evaluations for Riverside and San Bernardino counties. I completed three years of clinical training working in Murrieta Unified School District where I was able to consistently work with children and their families to improve the child’s mental state while in school through various therapeutic activities including the practice of mindfulness. This further ignited my passion for helping people and led me to open my private practice here in the Inland Empire.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
