About me

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for several decades. Earlier in my life, I focused on becoming a nurse until I met a social worker who had the training and skills I wanted so I could be instrumental helping others make positive changes. I have worked in institutional settings and community settings, in agencies and in private practice. I believe that talking things out is an important tool to help someone discover who and where they want to be.

I have compared myself to a GPS. I can show you a route and you may take that route or choose another way, knowing the GPS will be there to “recalculate.”. Most important is determining just whose road one is following. On occasion people recognize the destination toward which they were travelling is not one of their choice. It was a destination imposed
Wby some person or event. My job will be helping you chose the own right path and become your own GPS.

Life is a great adventure. I look forward to helping you discover the right path that gets you where you want to be.

I have been loving working with Randall. He's so kind and gentle to talk to, when I have been down or upset I really look forward to speaking with him, and getting his perspective on things. He gives me helpful things to put into practice when I need assistance with that, and it would have been immeasurably harder to make it through the past month I've been having without being able to talk to him.

Randall is incredibly insightful. He’s patient and thoughtful and willing to explore a person’s issues. And because he has helped as many people as he has, he knows where his patients are coming from and how to make suggestions to help them move forward. I would recommend him highly to anyone.
