Currently, I hold my Clinical Mental Health Counselor’s license and a provisional Clinical Addictions Specialist license, both with the state of North Carolina. I have been practicing for over 6 years. I am a certified Life Coach through Liberty University and a certified Yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance. I hail from an extensive military background as the daughter of a veteran, wife of a veteran, and as a proud veteran myself, of the United States Army.
I enjoy working with adults (individuals or couples), veterans, and active duty. I actively embrace culturally diverse populations. I utilize evidence-based modalities including Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Informed Interventions, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), and Tai Chi, Qi-Gong, and Yoga for the residual somatic symptoms of trauma. Additionally, I am certified to conduct Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), which enables people to heal from the symptoms of emotional distress resulting from disturbing life experiences.
I successfully conduct individual, family, couple, and group therapy in the areas of substance abuse, anxiety, depression, ADHD, anger management, adjustment, mood disorders, parenting, relationship conflict, self-esteem, trauma- and stressor-related disorders, and PTSD. A typical therapy session would include the implementation of psychoeducation, role-playing, social skills, conflict resolution management, healthy coping skills, grounding skills, and problem-solving skills, along with the development of self-awareness, critical thinking, or effective communication techniques. I inspire all clients to take an active role in their growing/healing process.
I look forward to working together with you along your journey to living a purposeful, victorious life.

I’ve been with Renee a short time now , & I can honestly say I feel comfortable with her, & can tell this will be a great experience for me. I have released information already that has been wearing me down for years. I look forward to working with her.
Renee is truly amazing and because of her, I am experiencing freedom and relief that I have never experienced before. She is the perfect combination of being highly professional and knowledgeable while also personable, real, kind, compassionate, and humble. I am truly grateful to have found her and appreciate the attention and respect she has shown me.
Renee is amazing at what she does. She made me feel comfortable and at ease. She allows you to work at your own pace and guides you along the way. Her suggestive techniques have given me so much relief!
Renee manages to help you get to the root of the issue and the truth of the matter without sugar coating anything. What would be difficult to face is easier to handle because it is done in such a respectful way and in a safe affirming environment.
Renee has been great! She's easy to talk to and her demeanour is very genuine and you can tell she loves what she does! I look forward to continue with Renee.
Awesome and very caring meets my energy and has many solutions
Renee is an amazing woman. She is the best therapist I’ve had by far you can fell her genuineness with her patients. Renee wants you to receive the best treat meant possible and if it’s not her she wants you to go and find your therapist that will help you. Renee is extremely insightful and down to earth, she’s also very engaging in our sessions. I am so glad to have found Renee.
I have received a lot of help from my counselor, I am doing better thanks to her aid. I recommend this counselor.
Insighful, kind, wise, able to communicate with anyone.
I would recommend her to anyone in need and I mean this.
I thank God for her and I was sent to her.
Renee is the best. I have had three sessions with her so far, so just getting starting however I feel confident and safe with her. I have tried many different therepist in the past and never connected well with them. My sessions always felt clinical and strict. So much so, that I summed myself up as being unable to connect with a therepist and that's why I came to better help because they offered typing sessions... and I'm much better at writing my thoughts and feelings rather than verbally chatting about them. I was EXTREAMLY weary. With Renee it's different. Shes real, honest, down to earth, extreamly well spoken, genuine, explains concepts that make sense and resonate. A combo of life experience and education. After the first typing session I switched to video because I felt so comfortable. She not only helps me understand my thoughts but also provides tools to continue educating and bettering myself between sessions. One of a kind.
