Richard Casdorph is a primary therapist with Daniels Academy. He is relatively new to the whole “Utah experience.”  He has spent most of his life back east in the West Virginia area.   His accent and positive energy often give him away!  While living in West Virginia, he stayed busy in the business world running a military dealership, managing a horse ranch, and managing commercial properties.  Richard realized early in his adult life that he loved “journeying” with people.  So, about 15 years ago, he ventured to Colorado and began committing his time and effort to helping others “find their way.”  After obtaining more education, he started working at homeless shelters and halfway houses in the Denver region.  While living in California, he discovered that he enjoyed working with teens and their families through mental health issues, crises, and addiction. Richard is married with a “full life,” enjoying his children and grandchildren.  His passions in life are motorcycles, high country experiences (especially in the Rockies), and good food.  It should be known that Richard affirms himself to be a “gym rat.”  He strongly believes that to stay healthy, you must “live close to your heart and follow your natural design to your destiny.”
