I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Behavior Analyst with over 20 years of experience in multiple counseling modalities. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief and loss, and addictions (substance and process). I have extensive experience helping individuals who have experienced trauma including physical and sexual abuse. I have a background in addiction counseling and am Board Certified in Behavior Analysis (BCBA). I am trained in level 1 and 2 EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
My counseling style is non-judgmental, collaborative, and compassionate. I strongly believe in a strength-based approach that allows an individual to discover or affirm their unique gifts as an individual. Strengths are often magnified in challenging times when they're most needed. My counseling approach is to tailor our interaction and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I sincerely commend you in taking the first step in establishing the life you’ve always wanted. It’s my honor to share this important time in your life and I look forward to working with you!

I went from being fed up of therapists to wanting to be in therapy with Renee forever because she is the first person who has given me the type of support and comfort I had been craving.
She is so kind, warmhearted and patient with me and even makes a point of checking in on me if I haven’t contacted her in a short while. My healing journey has been amazing under her guidance and though it might take years, knowing Renee is my travel companion makes it worth it.

Renee is an absolute amazing therapist. I've had a rough track record with therapists for the most part so I was hesitant at first but Renee put all my doubts and worries to rest right away. She is an amazing therapist who has worked diligently with me to accomplish so much healing, growth, and peace in such a short while. I put off handling the wounds of my past for 10+ years and since working with her have healed and found closure with so much in a short period of time. It feels amazing!!
