About Sladich Counseling

Hi, I'm Richard Sladich


From shyness to social anxiety, I have the solutions that can work for you.  

Free Consultation

I do offer a free 15-minute consultation to help us both get an idea of what it will be like to work with each other. This is available in person or over the phone.


I know what it feels like to have social anxiety.  If you would like to read more about my own journey out of the same anxiety and depression that you may be feeling, please find my story under the Credentials section.

Social Anxiety

Are you looking for help with social anxiety? Visiting this site means you are probably facing some challenges in life. It takes courage to seek help, and I commend you for taking the first step.

I know what it takes to beat social anxiety because I learned to overcome it myself. Social anxiety can feel overwhelming, and if untreated can lead to lower quality of life as you slowly isolate yourself from others. The potential feelings of a lack of control as well as a lack of understanding as to why this is happening often results in depression.  Fortunately, both social anxiety and depression can be very aptly addressed with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

My experience enables me to offer extremely effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. I treat a number of mental health issues, while focusing on the treatment of social anxiety in Raleigh, NC.


If you have social anxiety and related depression, I feel strongly that I can help you. Please contact me for a free 15 minute consultation in person or by phone.

My Treatment Focus


As your counselor, my focus is to provide you with a safe, comfortable, supportive environment where you can express yourself without judgement, without shame, and with acceptance. I enjoy working with clients regardless of race/ethnicity, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation. Working together we will develop your individual counseling goals and a plan to achieve those goals. You can find more detail about therapy with me under the Therapy tab.
