Dr. Monica Richards

Monica Richards, a full-time missionary with Damascus, wife and mother of five, and licensed Doctor of clinical Psychology, has an amazing ability to drill fearlessly into deep issues, develop trust, and facilitate pathways toward healing and wholeness for each individual she encounters.  She has developed, especially through her study and work with the Theology of the Body Institute and the John Paul II Healing Center, a love for presenting the Gospel of freedom, dignity, power and identity in a way that is engaging, entertaining, and direct.  She and her husband Aaron share a combined 30+ years of experience in professional ministry and have worked in leadership with Catholic Youth Summer Camp and Damascus since 2001.
