Dr Randi Hennigan joins us from Texas after moving to Bend with interest in being closer to family and with excitement to live full-time in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She received her Bachelors in Psychology from Baylor University and her Masters and PhD in Family Therapy from Texas Woman’s University.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Randi has spent the past 10 years working with young adults, adolescence and families in a variety of settings, including outpatient community mental health centers, schools, and private practice. Randi is also an adjunct professor of graduate counseling and research courses and is currently a member of a research team studying the process of emotional cutoffs and reconciliation in adult children, parents, and siblings.
Randi greatly enjoys working with families and admires the many unique qualities young adults bring to the family system as they transition into independence. In particular, Randi appreciates the therapeutic process of empowering youth and their families to identify their strengths, create successful means of reaching their goals, and identify ways to restore and maintain positive communication and relationships.
Outside of her professional endeavors, Randi enjoys camping, hiking, kayaking, and bird watching as well as drawing & painting, relaxing with a good book or cup of coffee, and listening to her record collection.
