Welcome to my practice web site.
My name is Dr. Randi Fredricks and since 1991, I have been a published researcher and author on pioneering studies and books about
individuals, couples, and communication.
I enjoy and look forward to working with individuals and couples who want to improve their
lives and relatiomships. My approach to therapy is active and supportive, using strengths and working as a team with clients.
I use a powerful healing method that combines the deep wisdom of psychology and natural medicine
with the current scientific research on the healing qualities of both. In addition to having a Ph.D. in psychology, I have a doctorate in
naturopathy (natural medicine). I offer a holistic approach to therapy which heals the
Natural Remedies for Mental Health
At San Jose Psychotherapist, one of the therapies I use the most is solution-focused therapy, emphasizing specific goals and expecting positive change. It seems that when
we focus on a results-oriented approach to therapy, change is much easier.

Addiction Treatment (Alcohol, Drugs, Sexual Compulsivity, Codependency)
Blended Family Issues
Career and Job Satisfaction Issues
Couples, Marital, and Family Issues
Issues associated with Chronic Illness

How I Work as a Psychotherapist
Our personal relationships can give us with great joy, fulfillment, and opportunities for intimacy. They can also bring challenges,
conflict, frustration, pain, and confusion. In intimate relationships, many people experience problems with communication, difficulty
balancing time with their friends and careers with time spent with their partner, struggles with the balance of power control, money conflicts,
sexual problems, different priorities about how to spend leisure time, and issues from their families of origin or prior relationships.
Therapy can help address these areas with the assistance of an objective, empathetic professional. Skills in problem solving and
clarifying expectations are developed.
Many of the questions you may have about therapy in general and my practice in particular are answered on this website.
