Biography

Dr. Terri Richmond is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who has been a practicing clinician in Illinois and Northeast Indiana since 1997.  Although, her area of specialized study and training is in the treatment of children and adolescents, over the years she has worked with a wide variety of populations.  She has practiced in an extensive array of clinical settings including adult and adolescent inpatient, community mental health, adult and adolescent residential, therapeutic day schools, as well as adult and juvenile court systems. Her primary approach to therapeutic interventions is based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).  However, she is an advocate for “meeting a client where they are,” meaning that she believes that clinicians should be open and flexible to the design of their treatment interventions by selecting the interventions that are most appropriate for the individual client.  As such, Dr. Richmond frequently draws from other theoretical orientations forming an “eclectic” approach to treatment.  Dr. Richmond has extensive experience in psychological testing, behavior modification, and the treatment of mood disorders, trauma, and severe and persistent mental illnesses.          

Dr. Richmond’s passion remains with serving the underserved.  She has spent the span of her career working in the underserved areas of Chicago and Indiana and is an Alumna of the National Health Service Corps. She has also worked with local clinicians and politicians to develop and implement community programming and mental health services in areas designated to be most in need. Through these experiences she has gained a great deal of understanding of the dynamics of diverse populations and the importance of attending to issues of diversity in working with clients.
