Sometimes a psychologist can solve problems you don’t necessarily have.
That was the case at HotelParisi in La Jolla. At a friend’s suggestion, proprietor Sami Ladeki added psychologist services to his establishment this fall.
The friend was Dr. Carol Randolph, a licensed clinical psychologist who has a private consulting practice in La Jolla, and will be on call for the hotel’s guests.
Randolph’s suggestion about adding her services to the hotel’s offerings came up over a cup of coffee, Ladeki recalled.
The reasoning behind it, he said: Travelers sometimes are under unique pressure, whether business travelers who are preparing for an important meeting or presentation or guests dealing with an important life event.
According to Randolph, being removed from a person’s regular routine may bring about a different outlook on a person’s life situation or priorities.
Parisi guests are able to dial Randolph’s office through the hotel’s phone system, Ladeki said.
