I have known Melody Richards for almost 20 years as her pastor, friend and co-counselor. As her pastor I know Melody to be a woman of deep faith who is thoroughly committed to the principles of the Bible and the power of prayer. As her friend, I know her love for people and her reputation for integrity and loyalty. As one who has counseled clients with her in the past, I can vouch for her skill as a therapist. She is proficient in the best secular and faith based methods of counseling. She has proven to be especially effective in assisting clients with marriage and family issues. She also has been quite successful in helping folks who are dealing with stress, depression, or symptoms of grief.
We have sent dozens of clients facing a myriad of issues to Melody for help. She has exceeded our expectations with each client. Her record of success with those we have referred to her is phenomenal. I highly recommend Melody as a trusted resource for effective faith based counseling.

Melody changed my life. After losing a loved one I thought life was spiraling out of control. The courage it took to walk into her office was only half the battle, letting my guard down and opening myself up to a complete stranger was another. Melody quickly allowed me to win that battle through her personal approach, faith background, and sincere appreciation for listening to me. Most importantly, Melody taught me how to use the emotional experience of losing a loved one in a positive way and gain control of my own destiny. My weekly meetings quickly turned into the highlight of my week. I will forever be indebted to Melody, and highly recommend her to help you through the curve balls life can throw your way.
Several years ago, my marriage was turned upside down. Melody was a miracle worker in our lives. She helped turn this challenging time around in our marriage. We remain strong and committed in our journey together…thanks to Melody’s guidance. God has blessed Melody and her faith based counseling and has allowed me to realize sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right places.
