Brooke Randolph, LMHC

Both therapeutically and personally, I am committed to never stop learning and growing. I am regularly reading half a dozen non-fiction books at a time, many due directly to a client need. I believe that therapists should have a well-stocked toolbox to meet the individual needs of each client. I do not have a single approach, rather I strive to find what fits best for each individual client, meeting them where they are, and respecting their personal pace. In addition to the trainings and certifications listed below, I consider myself influenced by existentialism, IFS-informed, and Daring Way informed.
