Ricky provides individual therapy known as his Thrive Program to all members of the community seeking support. As a multi-award winning psychotherapist Ricky is highly sought after for his specializations in working with teens. Throughout his career he has been able to learn from some of the most highly regarded members of the mental health community, including Dr. Arwen Podesta; Dr. Gabor Mate; Dr. Jordan Peterson; Dr. Gerald Corey; and Dr. William Bischoff. He has been able to apply his knowledge to various disorders, including--but not limited to-- trauma, panic disorders, and major depressive disorders. He began his career focusing on those with panic disorders and self-harming behaviors, including non-suicidal self-injuries (NSSI) and for this reason he has been a staple in providing evidenced based and theoretical approaches to teens and young adults struggling to find inner peace.
Ricky utilizes the following evidence based theoretical models that include:
Ricky is the pioneer of Integrative Identity Therapy (I.I.T) which theorizes that mental health disorders are actually a phenomena event in a persons life that is rooted in the fragmentation of personal identity. Fragmentation can occur due to trauma, addiction, family expectations, etc. The process for integrating personality has been largely fragmented in the field of psychology until Integrative Identity Therapy. This theoretical model provides the framework of integrating personality through careful research of the mind-body connection. This research gave rise to the neurobiological pyramid of influence a tool that is crucial in helping orient and synthesize personality. Through this process an individual can find sustainable healing that leads to long lasting remission from various disorders.
"Ricky saved my daughters life and helped support our family through one of our most difficult moments. He personally met us at the hospital and stayed with us for 7 hours as they found a bed for her. He sat with us and talked with us during this entire time. His concierge services are an absolute must when you have a child or a loved one who needs some additional support. Ricky truly is a part of our family." ~ Rebecca M.
"When it comes to addiction in Louisiana. Ricky is the name that everyone knows. If you need help call him today." ~Joseph V.
