Hi, My name is Randee.
"Don't Settle for Crumbs When You Can Have the Whole Cake"
I am here to help you get the whole cake; be it having your voice, setting boundaries, honoring feelings, communicating clearly, achieving balance, feeling empowered, maintaining healthy relationships, and more.
I am also here if you are feeling anxious, angry, depressed, experiencing PTSD, and more. I am also versed in teaching parenting skills, stages of life transitions, and grief and loss.
Teaching you healthy communication skills will lead to positive behavior changes.
My background is Family Systems. When I work with people I work at 3 different levels. Intra Psychically which is how you individually think, feel and behave. Inter-personally, how you are in relationships. And Multi-generationally, patterns of behavior you learned from your parents that you want to unlearn or keep those that suit you.
I believe we are all born with invisible buckets inside of us. When we don't get our feelings met, we put them in the bucket. Over time, our buckets get full; we put another feeling into the bucket and it overflows. This is when people come to seek help.
You might have feelings originating from 10 years ago, or only 2 days ago. Feelings don’t have time clocks and they don’t have intellect (otherwise they would be thoughts). We will work on feelings from your past and feelings from your present; they are still real. I honor people’s feelings and their need not to feel feelings so if something is too overwhelming we’ll go a little bit at a time.
Goals in therapy will be set by you. I see myself as a light at the end of the tunnel. I won’t push you through or pull you through; I’ll walk with you. I give homework assignments for accountability and will teach you techniques, both of which are tailor-made for you.
The most difficult thing in life is to feel. When you are feeling, you really are at your strongest. Therapy is the journey towards empowerment, changing behaviors, and getting your needs met. Starting therapy is a huge step and if you've come to this site, you have already taken your first step.
I am happy to be your partner along this journey.
