About My Work and Me
Solomon Richberg III: I started my therapist career as a graduate intern for a substance abuse clinic in south Florida. My passion for helping people with addictions drove me to help other populations. I moved back to my home state of New York to complete my Masters in Social Work at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College in 2014.
I was fortunate enough to work with people in Prisons, Child Welfare, and Crisis centers. I have treated people with anxiety, addiction, depression, anger, and people transitioning into new stages of their life. I have a private practice in Orlando, Fl helping people heal from their pain and help adjust their autonomic nervous system, so can regulate normally again.
Before being a therapist, I was a Division 1 student-athlete and played football at the University at Buffalo as a lineman. Being an athlete helped me learn to be discipline and give 110% on and off the field. Today, I give that same 110% effort to my clients. I am constantly growing as a therapy and continue to practice the most cutting edge approaches to heal my clients. I empathize with how anxiety and depression can hinder us from the next level. I have learn over the years that stress, trauma, and depression is not caused from the event, but the disruption of the nervous system due to the event. I am now using approaches that help the human autonomic nervous system that provides miraculous improvements compare to traditional talk therapy.
I understand the difficulty of trauma and how it affects the body. If we come together with a plan for regulating the body, then stress, trauma, and even depression may diminish overtime. I offer both in office appointments, but due to high demand from other parts of the state of Florida, I am accessible to all areas in Florida via teletherapy as well.
My Work Experience
I have worked with most populations, but my main focus is people in crisis. Half of my career is working with people with the highest stress level and finding ways to help them regain stability. I have helped people that suffer from anxiety.
I have treated clients with transitioning new stages of their life, such as retirement, graduation, new home, illnesses, the birth of a child, and the death of a loved one. Those situations can be daunting for people, so anxiety and depression are common to deal with in these situations.
Unfortunately, we will face most of these stressors in our lives, but I do have good news about it. Fortunately, these situations can be resolved. It can be difficult to handle it by yourself. It can be even more difficult without the proper tools to help cope with these situations. Therefore, therapy can be greatly beneficial in addressing these problems.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Florida, and I am trained in using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) to help resolve these problems.
I selected these areas for training because they emphasize the importance of restructuring our cognitive thinking. I will help determine the cognitive distortions that are hindering you. Unfortunately, with Covid-19 (Coronavirus), anxiety and depression have increased tremendously due to the pandemic's frequent deaths, isolation, job losses, and other factors.
CBT will help you cope with these situations, and I am here to help. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower the champion within you.
