Our identities are one of the most important aspects of our personalities. The essence of who we are, how we exist in the world, and how we pursue our values creates an inner knowledge of self. Counseling can involve identifying, exploring, and utilizing these ideas to encourage clarity. My approach to therapy begins with unconditional positive regard and stems into several branches of therapy. I specialize in talk and art therapy with adolescents and those who identify as a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. I can also walk and talk with you on the Prairie Path in Elmhurst or Glen Ellyn!

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

“Not all who wander are lost” is a quote I have loved while walking through my own life’s uncertainty. When you find yourself faced with an unclear path, talking with a therapist offers comfort, clarity, connection, and guidance. Counseling involves exploring yourself in a safe space that includes your perceptions and behaviors, and anything else relevant to the healing process. We can all thrive when provided the appropriate environment, so my primary goal is providing the type of safe space that works best for you.

Have you found yourself asking any of the following questions to friends or family members about your child: "I don't know what's up with them." "Did I do something wrong?" "They won't talk to me like they used to." Despite your best efforts, it seems like your child is just stuck in a hard place. As a parent, it can be intimidating to reach out and find a counselor for your child, because you want what is best for them. You're looking for someone that will connect with them, and walk with them through any stress, anxiety, and transitions they are experiencing.

Are you struggling with anxiety, sadness, stress, trauma, relationship challenges? Feeling stuck? Times are more challenging now than ever before. I often hear people think their problems aren’t “big” enough for therapy, but these small issues can impact functioning and quality of life. Or, they feel so lost or shameful. Good news - therapy doesn't have to be a life long commitment. My clients are often in a transitional period of their life or having a harder time coping than usual. This is normal! You deserve this opportunity to de-stress and take care of your needs.

I love to work with passionate people, whether it manifests in anger or intensity, and help to redirect that energy into positive motivation. I place special attention on working with stress, anger management, fertility issues and with substance use disorders. My specialization in recovery work from addictions came from experience working in both inpatient settings and outpatient counseling. Recovery work taught me to stabilize crisis situations and create momentum when clients feel stuck.

What type of Elmhurst mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Elmhurst?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
