Randy's mission is to provide quality counseling services to the community with policies and procedures that are as simple, uncomplicated and straightforward as possible.

After the intake assessment is completed-which takes one or more sessions, I will work with you to develop a treatment plan that focuses on identifying your most important goals going forward.
I prefer to use a strength-based approach to counseling rather than a pathology based approach of having to provide a mental disorder diagnosis to a health insurance company.
My choice not to accept insurance for payment also permits me to provide you with greater privacy and confidentiality, and to structure a collaborative treatment plan with you that works best for you.
In these days of worry about where private information will end up, and how it might be used in the future-you will have peace of mind in knowing that your confidential mental health information will not end up in the data base of an insurance company. Check-out the "TOP 10! Again!" page to identify more benefits of keeping your insurance company out of your mental health care!
Similar to going to a family physician for an annual check-up, I am most interested in establishing a collaborative therapeutic relationship as your family therapist, that you can rely on again for "check-ups" as you journey through life. To help you know what to expect financially, it is my policy not to raise a client's fees during a particular course of treatment. In other words, the fee that you start with is the fee that you will end with.
Reduced fee services are considered on case-by-case basis. I value working out a modified fee for determined clients who need financial assistance. Please contact me if you have further questions.
As a way to assist future mental health professionals and give back to my profession, I also offer a discounted rate to LMFT, LPCC and Social Work graduate students who need personal counseling for their graduate program. Please contact Randy if you are interested.
Cash, check and online ATM or major credit cards accepted for payment. Go to the "Make a Payment" page if you prefer to make an online payment-it's fast and easy!
Your appointment time is scheduled just for you. If you do not show up for your appointment, and have not notified Randy at least 24 hours in advance, you will be expected to pay the full cost of the session.
