About me

Hello. If you’re seeking a senior therapist, with many years of experience and continuing education, who is known for his compassion, wisdom, experience and sense of humor, you may have come to the right place. After some years as a carpenter, building and remodeling homes, I returned to school to complete a B.A. in psychology and social work followed by an M.Ed in counseling psychology. I’ve worked in a variety of settings as a therapist, starting as a psychiatric technician in a trauma care hospital in 1993, later developing a rural mental health clinic with five other therapists and my last eight years of practice in the student counseling department for the University of Wisconsin. I have been licensed in Washington state as well as in Wisconsin as an LPC. I also have a substance abuse treatment licensure.
I’ve had a lot of training along the way and have learned a great deal from my clients as well. My approach to helping my clients is based in this experience, training and a caring sense of the uniqueness and value of every individual. I draw on a variety of technical models of therapy, based on what my clients seem to need and who they are. While I have provided therapy in several different settings utilizing several specialties, as a semi-retired counselor I am now focused on working with clients who are seeking support for wellness, personal growth and/or anxiety or depression, using MINDFULNESS based approaches. I consider myself very wholistic in my approach to therapy. I recognize that there is a seamless interaction of processes between the mind, body and spirit. I believe that if we fail to recognize these connections, we may miss the mark in achieving the healing and growth we're hoping for. My goal is to help you achieve this healing and growth. I look forward to working with you.

Randall is compassionate, intentional, experienced, and all-around great! He listens closely and guides effectively. I trust him to bring an evidence-based approach to my therapy and hold me accountable. I couldn't ask for a better match!

He has been so helpful to me for only a short time. I could see the improvement and he has allowed me to take the steps needed to improve my mental health

I really enjoy speaking to Randall as my therapist. He is a great listener and always offers an interesting perspective to my issues and concerns. He is very kind and gentle when helping me and he has always made feel very safe when speaking to him. There was no topic that was scary or weird to bring up, and I never felt judged for my thoughts or ideas on any topic we discussed. He provided tools that have helped get significantly better than when I first started therapy. One of the most powerful skills or concepts he help me develop, was understanding the difference between self confidence and self compassion. I literally remind myself to treat myself with kindness and compassion every day. He has helped immensely.

I was really excited to have a more wholistic and dynamic approach to therapy. I’m very happy I chose to send him an intro message telling him about my hobbies/interests/lifestyle to ensure I had a therapist who saw me as a whole person and not just a list of symptoms. I feel very understood and heard by him and it has been very refreshing to feel like I’m always making progress from one session to the next. And I appreciate that he listened to my individual goals and keeps me on track during sessions. I have a long way to go but it is such a relief feeling like I’m actually getting better.
