Jeremy Richards, MD

Board-Certified General and Adult Psychiatrist  

​About Dr. Richards:

Dr. Richards takes a holistic approach to every clinical encounter, seeking an empathic understanding of the underlying bio/psycho/social/cultural/spiritual landscape that contributes to the presenting situation. He favors a mindfulness based framework, and a dynamic, affect-focused approach. He is also experienced with targeted cognitive behavioral therapies, existential therapies, and other tailored  therapeutic approaches. When medications are needed, he finds it important to discuss how the pharmacology fits into the wider perspective of recovery.  

Dr. Richards attended medical school at the University of Rochester, NY. (Home of the Bio/Psycho/Social Model and much snow).
