Over the course of his career, Richard has met some of the most interesting and fascinating people that he could have ever thought to meet. Every day is a blessing for him.

Hey, does anything surprise him?
Caring, Empathetic, Compassionate
I enjoy going to work now. I actually laughed the other day.
He always clears things up for me. I am grateful and that’s why I keep going back to him.
I mean, there are just some things that I could never talk to anyone else about.
It is like having the top of your head removed and then having installed a skylight to the stars.
Learning that I was not alone in my experience was a great feeling. Now I can move on.
Personally, I like the pictures, charts and diagrams that he draws.
I like that he was a minister. He is so pastoral and understanding of my concerns.
You can sure tell that he is a trained teacher. It was like being taught a lesson in life; a lesson that I actually paid attention to.
Richard helped me out with my grief. I didn’t think I would ever breathe again. Don’t get me wrong, I am still devastated. A parent should never have to bury her child. But for the first time in a long time, I saw a twinkle of light. What a gift that was.
Richard helped my husband and I work out some things. It sure helped us clear out a lot of things that were in the way of our relationship.
Since I started seeing Richard, I have not been behind the 8-Ball playing catch-up.
I like the conversational setting AND I had fun. I laughed so hard!
Where did my pain go? I feel so good.
After a session, I drive home ready to tackle the world.
Nowhere else can I go to talk about aliens, my sex-life, my job, spiritual enlightenment, fantasies, paranormal stuff, gardening, my house design, choosing wallpaper and how to pray all in one place with one person?
A Personal Note From Sterling:
I am so happy that people perceive me as someone who is kind, open and positively inspiring. I am humbled by the above responses.
My life has seen its share of ups and downs. Sometimes, the downs were pretty dark.
Along the way, I learned to treasure my time spent with other people. I like to be still, present and honestly listen.
I offer this more traditional counselling service in addition to my intuitive art focussed service because there are times in life when we simply need a place to talk, share and be supported in a confidential setting with someone who has a pastoral care background. At times, it can be difficult navigating this world and simply knowing someone is there to listen to you who will not gossip about you or tell other people about your perceptions can be the hopeful inspiration one needs to rise above the fog and embrace life.
I think we all deserve to move forward in our own ways.
I sincerely care,
