Becca Richards, LCSW, PMH-C

Owner & Therapist

Hello! I'm Becca, owner and psychotherapist at the Village. Building a family feels like building a boat while you are in the water sometimes, right? I have been walking alongside others in their parenting journey for many years, and I am delighted to offer a space that is dedicated to this very special time of life. Whether you are planning your family and having fertility struggles along the way, or you are having your children and need support to navigate all of the ups and downs, I am here to walk alongside you. Everyone needs a village, allow us to be that support system for you. 

Becca has limited availability.

Hello! I'm Ann and I've spent the last 12 years serving women and their families in the Champaign-Urbana area in a range of capacities. My family and I are proud to call this area home. My abundant personal and professional experience informs my beliefs and practices in the therapeutic realm. I rely on honesty and authenticity in my work and I hold the therapeutic relationship in the highest regard.

Cassie Bestor, LCSW

Therapist

Hello! I'm Cassie and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to serve you as part of The Village. People of all walks of life are often told to "ask for help"...perhaps you're here because you know just the help you need or you are looking for guidance to define what "help" even means for you. I'm happy to meet you where you are and walk with you through the next steps, seasons, and beyond. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the CU area I have worked in both the medical and mental health realms. I witnessed great resilience of parents working through the myriad of situations and emotions, some expected, some not, that come with the journey. I look forward to talking with you!

Cassie has limited availability.
