The experiences she has had in her career provide the opportunity to be fully informed of the effects of mental illness, family conflicts, life transitions and stressors, and traumatic experiences for all ages, from the very young to the very old. Renee is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and uses an eclectic approach to therapy including modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Some examples of what one may experience in therapy are identifying and restructuring unhealthy thought patterns and behaviors, improving relationships through improved communication and addressing unresolved issues from the past. Therapy will always be conducted in a safe, nonjudgmental environment and with a listening ear. Each client and their experience are unique, and Renee works with each client individually to set the goals they wish to achieve.
Renee’s philosophy is that challenges in life can be seen as stumbling blocks or stepping stones. She enjoys partnering with clients to achieve the latter. Care and compassion are essential to working through such experiences and she imparts both to her clients. Renee looks forward to working with you and seeing some of life’s challenges become stepping stones.
