Reaching out for help can be difficult at best. It takes strength to begin that search, especially when you may be struggling just to function in your everyday activities.

About Friendly Psychology

Psychological treatment is both an art and a science. Friendly Psychology offers clinical therapy and support for adults of all backgrounds. We believe that each client we work with deserves to be understood in the context of their own life and experiences.

We do not offer a one-size-fits-all “boiler plate” psychotherapy treatment plan. Instead, we believe in being partners in your growth, engaging together to provide you with the tools, strategies, and guidance you need to thrive. Whether you are seeking brief psychological intervention, life coaching, a friendly ear, or an evidence-based treatment for anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, and other mental health conditions, we will discuss the available options and determine the best fit for you.

One important underlying principle that echoes throughout our work is that the past cannot be changed. Healing often begins with acceptance, understanding, and resolution of the challenges we face in our lives – whether they come from specific events, or simply the emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations that we’ve developed over time.

Led by licensed clinical psychologist Dr. Leigh Anne Randa, Friendly Psychology is the place to turn to receive the treatment that you deserve.

Our Approach to Therapy and Counseling

Dr. Randa approaches each individual as having a unique set of experiences and beliefs that interact with their environment and physical selves. These experiences, which can lead to both helpful and unhelpful ways of perceiving themselves, their relationships, and the world we live in, often need to be addressed using approaches that are tailored to the individual.

We are here if you just want to talk or are looking for some life guidance. Dr. Randa also provides many evidence-based therapies. Some of the treatment approaches we may pursue include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Circle of Security
  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)
  • Internal Family Systems Informed Therapy (IFS Informed)

By applying complementary therapy styles and techniques, our clients experience positive change in their current lives, address long standing patterns in behaviors or perception, release traumatic memories stored in the body, and change negative thoughts that may be holding us back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

What We Treat at Friendly Psychology

Dr. Randa has a Ph.D. from Seattle Pacific University and has extensive experience working with veterans in trauma recovery. This training and education allow Dr. Randa to support patients with most mental health challenges. At Friendly Psychology, we specialize in treating conditions that include:

  • Generalized Anxiety and Anxiety Disorders
  • Major Depression and Depressive Disorders
  • Bipolar and Related Disorders
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Other Trauma and Stressor related disorders
  • Childhood or Developmental PTSD (cPTSD)
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Grief/Loss, and More

Dr. Randa does not require a diagnosis to provide treatment, and many of her patients receive help for their day-to-day struggles and needs. If you feel like you could use someone to talk to in your life, Friendly Psychology is able to help.

Our Service Area – in person and Remote Therapy in AZ

Comprehensive remote in KS and MO

Dr. Randa is available for in person sessions in the Phoenix area. For those with more complex schedules or preference for remote therapy, Dr. Randa is well practiced in providing mental health care via telehealth.

Dr. Randa is a preferred therapist in Kansas City, MO. While no longer physically located in Missouri, she continues to provide full therapy services via HIPPA compliant telehealth services, and is licensed in several states, including Arizona, Kansas, and Missouri. Remote therapy offers many benefits that are not available with an office environment. There is no commute, scheduling is easier, and clients can see a psychologist from the comfort of their own home.

Through online therapy, Dr. Randa is also available to patients that may not otherwise have access to a psychologist in some of the more remote parts of the state. She is currently based in Tempe, AZ, and plans to continue to offer remote therapy to clients in MO, KS, and AZ indefinitely.
