I am a Marriage and Family therapist licensed in California. I’m from the Midwest and graduated from Indiana University.
I've had some wonderful experiences working with individuals, and I believe that everybody has the capacity and courage to change. I will do my best to help you find that courage, and to help you develop interpersonal skills by listening, challenging, and offering alternative ways of thinking and doing.
I believe that deep down, we all know what we want and need emotionally, and my work will focus on helping you understand your own unique life experience. I will meet you where you are and take this journey with you.
I know first hand that finding a therapist who you feel comfortable with and connected to is very important, so I provide a safe and supportive environment where you can talk openly. I am a good listener with a creative sense of humor. I am interactive in sessions offering a collaborative, compassionate, and emphatic approach to treatment. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and have a few inspirational moments. I really look forward to hearing from you.

I did not know what to do after a horrible accident changed my life forever. Randy has been helping and guiding me through this difficult time. It is not an easy thing but I feel extremely comfortable opening up to him about everything and just allowing myself to be honest to both him and myself.

Randy has helped me a massive amount over the couple of months we have spoken, I feel very comfortable and safe when talking to him. He offers supporting help and advice and I feel at ease talking about anything to him.
