If life is handing you more than you can handle by yourself, it’s time for a positive change. I can help support and guide you and together, we can empower you, to face all of life’s challenges.
I am a licensed social worker in Michigan with over 20 years of experience working with many people just like yourself. I have successfully helped people who have experienced depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and OCD.
I consider it an honor to support individuals on their personal journeys toward: inner peace, mindfulness, effective communication, deeper relationships, self-awareness and contentment.
You have already taken the first step to a transformational change in your life and where the mind goes, the energy flows! If you are ready to take the next pivotal step, I am here to support and empower you to do great things.
*Please note that I do not conduct “texting only” therapy. I believe that it is vital to establish a connection and build rapport with my clients initially, via video or even phone calls. You can however, feel free to text me via your portal at anytime.
I look forward to working with you!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Renee LaVigne. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Renee has been a huge help to me. She was very focused on my goals and very aware of what I was looking for in a therapy. I was suffering from low self esteem, anxiety attacks, sleeplessness, and downward spirals. She encouraged me to dig deeper and acknowledged when I was taking a big step or discovering something new about myself. I highly recommend her to anyone going through life changes or struggling with their confidence.

Renee is absolutely wonderful. She beautifully balances challenging my typical patterns of thought with wit and humor. I can’t say enough about her clinical expertise in guiding me to reach my goals.
So grateful that our paths crossed!

Renee is laser focused on the goals I set and we talked over. She listens to me, reads the things I have written and then challenges me to see the things I don't see or don't want to see. This can be hard, but it is what I was looking for to get to my goals. Very straight forward and nice. She quickly earned my trust and I feel safe opening up to her.

I have been seeing Renee for a few months now and our sessions have helped me immensely. I have made a lot of progress in my relationships and also on my journey of loving myself and finding peace. I recommend her for anyone looking for an attentive, mindful, personable, and kind counselor to walk alongside you.
