My name is Randall Freitas and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in California. I have over ten years of experience and have worked with people from many ages and backgrounds successfully. Much of the work that I have done has been with clients that have experienced trauma. If you need a safe place to talk about stress, anxiety, anger management, past trauma, being a survivor of abuse and/or grief processing please reach out to me so that we can schedule an intake interview. I treat all clients with respect and dignity. I am an ally and member of the LGBTQIA + community. I'm looking forward to speaking with you soon.

I specialize in treating LGBT concerns (individual and relationship), and augment my practice with specialized training in transgender care.
*I offer teletherapy to clients in California, Nevada and Colorado. I offer in-office visits in Sacramento and San Francisco when allowed by local ordinance and client comfort.* Sometimes we expect far too much from ourselves. Each client is invited into a space where there is no expectation and where they are free to be themselves, without fear of judgement or misunderstanding. Adults can sometimes struggle to find space to hold compassion for themselves. Couples (and all variants of relationship structure) can also use a nonjudgmental time and space to feel heard, while building tools for communication.

I help adults and teens looking to become more aware, learn and better themselves. Maybe there is something that needs to shift/change or maybe it is just a growth-oriented process. I have done a lot of my work with people who identify as Trans /Gender Non-Conforming/Nonbinary. Other queer populations who I have a lot of experience helping include couples, polyamorous relationships, the Latinx community, long-term HIV survivors, and gay / Queer men. My work celebrates diverse genders, sexualities and kink identities. My ideal client is open to work in a way that combines talk therapy, yoga/somatic approaches and art-based therapies.

As a member of and ally to the LGBTQ + community, I support all marginalized people as we heal the wounds that have kept you bound.
You find it difficult to attract or maintain healthy relationships in your life. Growing up, your family was dysfunctional, and you wonder how that’s impacting you today. Your family ignored your feelings or always seemed to sweep important issues under the rug. Constant criticism created pressure to conform to others’ expectations and hide how you felt. Over time this pressure left you numb and confused about what is or isn’t ok to be or feel? Doubt and insecurity creep in leaving you feeling anxious, angry, and depressed. You want to express yourself and hold healthy boundaries in your relationships, but don't know how to do that?

While I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults, and LGBTQ +, I have experience and enjoy working with clients of all ages.
Accepting new clients! Adolescence can be an exciting but equally scary and confusing time in our lives. In today’s ever-changing world, teens and young adults are faced with an incredible amount of stress that can feel impossible to navigate at times. I am passionate about helping teens and young adults develop life-long coping skills, discover a healthy sense of self and embrace what makes them uniquely beautiful. I believe therapy should be tailored to the individual, as each human’s experience is uniquely their own. I’m here to listen and learn without judgment to find the best approach for you.

As an LGBTQIA + allied clinician, I am kink/poly friendly and feel passionate about helping people thrive in their preferred lifestyle.
Do you feel like you are “too sensitive for the world around you?” Are you fine one moment and then overwhelmed with emotions the next? Maybe you’re in a “good” relationship, but can’t stop wondering whether it’s right for you. It can feel scary and lonely when it seems like your life is going well on the surface, but underneath there is a different reality. Many of my clients live with trauma, anxiety, extreme stress levels, and depression. They manage to expertly float through life finding “success” while feeling empty and depleted. The good news is that the skills that have helped you come this far are already in place.
