ABOUT DR. RICHARDSON
Dr. Tara Richardson was born and raised in Kansas. She attended the University of Kansas and then earned her medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine.
Dr. Richardson then completed her general psychiatric residency at the University of Kansas School of Medicine - Wichita where she served as chief resident. During residency, she received awards for excellence in research, teaching, and outpatient care. After residency, she completed an additional fellowship in Integrative Psychiatry, focusing on the role of general health, nutrition, trauma, and autoimmunity in mental health. She is a board-certified general psychiatrist, meaning she is able to treat patients of all ages.
Prior to starting this practice, Dr. Richardson served as departmental faculty at the University of Kansas School of Medicine - Wichita and acted as medical director for a senior behavioral health unit and the outpatient resident clinic. She served as councilor for the Kansas Psychiatric Society, and volunteers for both PANDAS Kansas and the Neuroimmune Foundation. She now takes care of patients (from pediatric to geriatric) across a variety of settings, inpatient and outpatient, rural as well as locally.
Dr. Richardson resides in Kansas with her husband and 4 children.
I do have a limited number of appointments available (currently ONLY via televideo) with FreeState Healthcare in Wichita and am able to accept some insurances through that location. They have a number of other wonderful psychiatrists there who see patients via televideo also and may have sooner availability. Please contact them at (316) 670-3800 if interested.
While telepsychiatry appointments can be done anywhere with reliable internet, federal mandates that physicians must hold a license in the state where their patient is physically located. Patients must be physically located in Kansas at the time of their visit.
There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.
