Katie Richard, LPC

Along Katie’s journey to becoming a counselor, she truly gained experience in what it means to take heart, have courage, and show up in her own life and the lives of others. She considers it an honor to now provide a safe place for children, teens, and young adults to do the same. Katie prioritizes holding space for all her clients to have the freedom to share, explore, create, play, and heal. Katie originally planned on becoming a special education teacher, but when she took her first psychology class in college, she knew she was called to the counseling field. She graduated from Richmont Graduate University with a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy, and was soon after introduced to the amazing world of play therapy. Katie loves including creativity and playfulness into her work with clients of all ages. She supports clients facing a variety of challenges, including emotion regulation, anxiety, depression, trauma, adjustment, identity, relationships, and parenting.  She has over five years of experience in the private practice setting with a focus in play therapy and parenting support, along with over two years in college counseling experience.  

Katie is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia and is currently under the supervision of Jennifer Hosea, M.Ed., LPC, RPT-S, CPCS to become a Registered Play Therapist.
