Meet the Faces of Mental Health News Radio: Melissa Richards, Counselor and Guest on Empowered Empaths

big-laugh-no-sweater-copyAfter earning a master’s degree in professional counseling from Liberty University in Virginia, Melissa Richards moved to Tampa, Florida, where she encountered a variety of populations and concerns in her many hours of training to become a licensed mental health counselor. Coincidentally, Tampa is also the birthplace of her first foray into private practice: otherwise known as Restoration Counseling Center.While she continues to practice today (though now based in Miami), Melissa enjoys any opportunity she’s offered that allows her to expand her counseling reach and notes the honor and joy she receives from “walking alongside so many hurting people.” That includes writing articles and speaking to larger audiences through various conferences or podcasts—and as of this summer, it also includes joining the Mental Health News Radio team.
