RBSCounseling is owned and operated by Richard B. Staples, CAGS.     

 Services include: Individual Therapy, Family Therapy, Group Therapy (based on need and referrals), and Psychological Assessment.

 At RBSCounseling, it is believed that there is a strong relationship between emotional and physical well-being. The practice provides treatments for conditions which incorporate this interaction.

 Rich Staples uses an integrated treatment model that strongly considers the relationship between the mind and the body. This approach combines knowledge of mind/body techniques with an eclectic approach to outpatient therapy.  A significant point of reference to distinguish Mental Health Counselors from Social Workers, Psychologists, Nurse Practitioners, and Psychiatrists, is that Mental Health Counselors increasingly utilize a wellness model for counseling clients, versus (or in conjunction with) the more traditional medical/illness model for assessment and diagnosis. Working with clients from a perspective of wellness is defined by emphasizing the strengths present within all people and looking for the positive aspects of the self to enhance life, rather than simply looking at people as having a set of problems that need to be solved.
