Randy enjoys working with youth, helping them to see who they really are and their potential to become anything they can dream to be! Randy specializes in working with adolescent females who have experienced abuse, trauma and risky use. Randy is also a Level I Certified Equine Assisted Therapist. Randy and his wife Toni are the parents of five children. One son and four daughters. The motivation for Re-Creation Retreat came from the personal experience of helping one of their daughters through a very abusive relationship. As they attempted to help their daughter, they were amazed at the difficulty dealing with the legal system, the educational system and the well-meaning but uninformed community in which they lived. Due to the lack of knowledge about abuse of women and its dynamics and a lack of resources, they found it to be a challenge to get their daughter the help she needed and to find support for themselves as parents. As a result, Randy and Toni developed Re-Creation Retreat. It is a private school and inpatient care facility for girls with the mission of helping young women “Re-Create” their lives around true principles leading to a correct understanding of who they “really are” and who they “can be.” Re-Creation Retreat is a resource for parents who are at the point of not knowing what to do to help their daughter who may be making poor decisions, failing in school, involved in unhealthy relationships and/or just defying parental authority.
