Dr. Carol Randolph is a clinical psychologist in California. Her practice is open to clients ranging in age from late teens through adulthood, and she specializes in helping clients navigate such concerns as anxiety, trauma, and difficulty adjusting to major life transitions. Additionally, clients often visit Dr. Randolph for support in handling day-to-day stressors, including relationship stressors and planning for the future.
Dr. Randolph's approach is dynamic, supportive, and relational in nature. Her training across various modalities, including mindfulness practices, means she is able to assess and provide the most appropriate treatment for problems presented in the course of psychotherapy.
After obtaining her Ph.D. from a fully accredited institution, Dr. Randolph completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship through UCSD's Department of Psychiatry working at the Gifford Clinic and the Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic in San Diego. She also participated for many years in post-doctoral study through ICP's (Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis) satellite program to deepen understanding and to refine her skills.
Since 1999, Dr. Randolph has been part of UCSD's Department of Psychiatry voluntary faculty, and continues to provide psychotherapy supervision to psychiatry residents in training.
