About Me

Have you felt sad, lonely or unheard? Do you experience feelings of nervousness or even panic? Are you struggling with important decisions in your life or feel overwhelmed? 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!

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.

Talking with Renee has been very helpful. I feel like I vented and dumped all of of my emotional baggage onto her lap and Renee does a great job listening to everything, organizing it, and stating it back accurately, simplified, and understandable. I can definitely tell she has been doing this a while which helps me have confidence and trust in her.

I have lots of talk therapy in my life but it's been a while since I've felt the need to speak with a professional. Renee is providing me with exactly what I need right now -- focused. present-based dialogue. We defined my goals for our sessions and she keeps me on track. I've come away from each session with terrific insights and forward-moving ideas that I put into practice in my daily life and philosophy.

I've only had one visit with Renee, but for all of my concerns and worries going into counseling for the first time, she managed to negate them all. I don't regret my decision to start at all.

This was my first time partaking in any type of counseling/therapy service, and Renee went above and beyond to ensure I am feeling confident and understanding how to cope with my anxiety! Highly recommend.
