My name is Randall Freitas and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California. I have over ten years of experience and have worked with people from all ages and backgrounds successfully. I have a lot of experience working with people that have experienced trauma. I also completed an additional two years of continuing education courses at San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis. I primarily work with clients using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy however, I also understand that sometimes we are all triggered by unconscious thoughts. My experience ranges in working as a therapist at a professional counseling agency, a residential facility, a level one trauma center, outpatient clinics, senior centers and schools.

I was Randall's client for about a year, then our schedules would not work so unfortunately I had to find a new therapist. Over the course of that time frame, he helped me work on bettering my relationship with myself and my husband, building self-confidence, communication, and understanding my substance abuse. This was my second time, and a much better experience of therapy. I would definitely recommend Randall to friend or colleague.
