For adults and teens, I offer psychodynamic talk therapy, exploring history, self-concept, and goals; for children, play therapy to help express emotions and put them into words and parent coaching to help parents understand what to expect from their child and how to help kids achieve their potential.
I am here to support humans - children, teens, adults, and families - as they navigate the complex world of human emotion and relationships. We are all good people. A good life can be hard, complicated, challenging, and even a difficult life can be rewarding, fulfilling, and well-lived. I seek to join with those who are struggling with that complexity to help them achieve the goals they have for themselves, to help them cope with inherent disappointments, losses, and stressors, and feel the joy of personal growth.

For teens and adults, I am a good fit and offer a safe and empathetic space for you to feel comfortable "opening up," and to support you as you make things in your life better. I enjoy listening and learning about each person's unique realities and perspectives. I am honored to be allowed to share in your thoughts, ideas, and issues.

Mid 2022. These are difficult times for all of us, each in our own way. At times we feel anxious, overwhelmed—and alone. We’re upset about our thoughts and how we act. Yet it seems hard to reach out for help. Connecting with a caring and wise therapist, however, can be of great benefit. At this point in your life, I extend my hand of assistance with all the experience and skills I have developed over the years. Seeking help is a smart thing to do. If you don't call me for a session, call someone. You are worth it. Most importantly, you CAN feel better. Cordially, Dr. Randall

Why am I here, and what are my lessons? The hard things in life, the things you really learn from, put you at a crossroads where you feel stuck and the pressure mounting. Everything is stressful and you feel powered down by the confusion, responsibilities and commitments. Something has got to give! Fortunately pain is an excellent teacher precisely because it gets our attention. I assure you the struggle you're experiencing now is guiding you. Struggle is a bonafide indication of real and important progress. Strength is in the struggle.

I am a warm and inviting clinician, and I am interested in you as you are, unconditionally. There are many beautiful moments in life, and sometimes we have to work through messy and complicated things to see that beauty. I am here to support you through both life's unexpected events and ordinary stressors that may blur your vision and impair your ability to see your joy and your gifts. I hold a non-judgmental space for you be vulnerable.

I believe wholeheartedly in the healing power of authentic and meaningful human connection. I believe growth and change are best fostered in an environment where you feel heard, seen, respected, safe, and valued. As a therapist, it is of the utmost importance that the therapeutic work we do together be a completely collaborative process. I feel passionate that the relationship we have with our emotions, especially the painful ones, dictates the quality of our lives. As humans, we all struggle with painful feelings, whether from loss, anxiety, illness, or changes.

Engaging in therapy can be a difficult decision for many people. Whether you are going through a life change, or you feel the need to put the past behind, or maybe simply wish to know yourself better, relate to your loved ones better, improve your academic or professional performance, face your fears, overcome a loss, or just wish to learn more efficient ways to deal with life stressors... these are all great reasons to engage in therapy. For me, genuineness, openness, and a non-judgmental approach are essential ingredients to connect with you, support you, and guide you in your journey.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
