"The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence." - Thich Nhat Hanh
My goal is to be present with you throughout your therapeutic journey. I believe everyone deserves someone who is present, patient, open, non judgmental, and willing to listen and hear you. Empathy is more then a word, it is a philosophy and ethical standard that guides my practice. I always try to create a comforting, loving, warm, and empathetic environment for everyone who comes in.
I have over 4 years of experience helping those in need. My experience includes work with youth (6-12), adolescents & teens (13-18), families, adults, and parents. I have an eclectic theoretical framework and match my style to my individual clients to best meet their needs. I utilize a cognitive behavioral approach as well as solution focused/ brief therapy and additional behavioral and experiential therapies. I am also trained in family systems approaches as well as parenting evidence based practices.
Areas of interests include parenting challenges, youth challenges, life transitions (pre-marriage, pre & post natal, retirement, etc), grief & loss, family relationships, aging, depression, anxiety, work-life balance, and stress challenges. I work with youth, parents, families, adults, couples, and adults 65+.
My respect and understanding is unconditional for all my clients. I hope you will allow me to help while joining you on your life journey.

The days I talk to Rene are the days I look forward to the most. Rene gives some of the best advice and really takes the time to understand the situation and helps you through it. If I hadn’t started talking to her I don’t know what I would’ve done...I’m so happy I have her in my life.
Rene has been an integral part of my post partum anxiety and depression journey. She has truly helped me to get to a place where I feel like the anxiety no longer has a grip on my life. It’s no longer the driving force in my life. I’m super grateful for her patience, understanding, encouragement, guidance and knowledge in how to help me navigate it all and come through feeling victorious. She has truly gained my trust and respect.
She is a God send.
I truly feel that Rene cares about my wellbeing. She is very thoughtful, solutions oriented and supportive.
I wish everyone could speak with Rene because she gives such great advice and direction. I also don’t wish everyone could speak to her because then I wouldn’t be able to! She listens and can sense the source of the problem when I’m too busy overthinking everything. She’s able to draw information from past sessions and find a common thread. She isn’t judgemental and has had a great affect on my life. I feel better than I’ve ever felt thanks to her!
Rene is very easy to talk to and she understands and really is helping.
Rene is very understanding, knowledgeable, and a great listener!!!
She is great thank you!
I love my counselor. She is great!
