    Randi believes in the power of a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship to facilitate personal growth, improved relationships, and to help facilitate desired change in one’s life. She is deeply committed to providing a genuinely safe environment in which her clients feel understood and supported.


    Randi specializes in the treatment of chronic pain using a mind body approach. She believes that chronic pain can often have psychological causes, which are commonly rooted in childhood experiences, as well as current and/or longstanding stressors. Learning to identify and experience conscious and unconscious emotions is integral to relieving chronic pain. Using psychoeducation, mindfulness,  Cognitive Behavioral and Psychodynamic therapies Randi helps her clients to get to the root of their psychological issues, aiding in the relief of physical and emotional pain.  Randi is certified in Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) which is an evidence-based approach rooted in neuroscience, which has shown that although chronic pain feels like it’s coming from the body, in most cases it’s generated by misfiring pain circuits in the brain.   PRT is a system of psychological techniques that retrains the brain to interpret and respond to signals from the body properly, subsequently breaking the cycle of chronic pain.
