I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida with over fifteen years of experience. I have worked with a variety of clients, as individuals or couples, who have experienced a range of mental health issues. For many individuals, identity and attachment has been a troubling factor, everyone wants a sense of acceptance, significance, and security. Additionally, I spent two years in west Africa (2017-2019) working with trauma related issues.
My counseling style is geared toward welcoming clients to feel at ease and comfortable in the therapy process. I utilize clinical research on the Attachment Theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotional-Focused Therapy (EMT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and the use of an "Empirical-Faith-based" Client-Centered Therapy process. Currently, I am working on an "Attachment and Trauma base" certification. My approach to counseling is holistic meaning, I look at the human condition as a bio-psycho-spiritual composite. All three elements impact our daily lives.
My goal is to help you become all you were meant to be. To "fully know yourself" and enjoy the life God wants for you.
I look forward in helping you take this journey of healing.

My practice hours begin Monday at noon (12pm EST). Regular hours start at 10 am EST Tuesday-Friday, and varies to provide multiple time zones and work schedules. Since I do provide global therapy to English speaking people, time zones can become an issue, so if needed, I will personally arrange Wednesday-Th-Friday early hours before 10am or a late Tuesday evening (USA; EST) solely reserved for those regions in and around times zones like Australia. I lovely do try to care for the needs of other, if I am able without bringing a burden on myself and my family.
Additionally, I reserve my weekends to bring me refreshment and rest, or serve in my community in my efforts to meet the continuing needs of others. Thank you for honoring this for me and everyone involved.
I generally can respond at least once per morning and once per evening, sometimes more! You can also book a live session with me ahead of time.

Randy is such a understanding therapist. Just the way he listens and understand my situation makes me feel so much better whenever I have a session with him.

Randy had been a great therapist within our relationship. We felt understood as a couple and Randy gave us the space to have our voices heard, the practical tools we could use to work on independently and a spiritual approach we needed as believers that helped us feel guided and fulfilled on multiple levels. My partner finds it challenging to talk about his feelings but felt comfortable with speaking to Randy.

As a new parent I had great difficulty in adapting to this new role and Randy was very helpful. He flawlessly combined biblical truths with psychotherapy techniques. He was always very kind and respectful in our communication and has a gentle demeanor. I 100% recommend Randy.

Randy is great and funny. He has a laid back and flexible style (Person Centered) of counseling. I appreciate he is able to tailor my sessions to include biblical truths for Christian Counseling.
