Randolph Potts, Ph.D.

Dr. Randy Potts is a licensed psychologist who earned his doctorate in psychology in 1994 from DePaul University in Chicago. For the past 25 years he has enjoyed working with adolescents, adults and older adults in a variety of settings.

He has been a staff psychologist at the Memphis VA Medical Center, a staff psychologist at the University of Memphis Counseling Center and has taught psychology in university settings. He has co-facilitated a community-based group for family members of homicide victims, and a group for military veterans with cancer. He has a special interest in helping clients navigate major life transitions such as loss, life altering medical conditions, military trauma and other traumatic experiences. He has experience providing culturally informed services for ethnic minority populations.

He sees counseling/therapy as an interactive dialogue that can stimulate reflection, new learning, growth and replenishment. He finds it important to emphasize that the person is not the problem they are experiencing — “The problem is the problem, the person is not the problem.” Within the person’s history and larger life story there may be resources for enriching the interactive dialogue, for solving problems and healing. He is married, enjoys running, listening to jazz, getting to know his new grandson, and hiking in Sedona, Arizona.
