Hello! I'm Sadie, and I hope I can be helpful in whatever has brought you here today. I am a Licensed Mental Health Practitioner in Nebraska. I have 17 years of experience working in the mental health field in residential, outpatient, in-home, and hospital settings. The largest part of that time has been spent working with children and families dealing with trauma, abuse, relationship conflicts, depression, and anxiety, among other issues.
I received my Master of Science in Family and Youth Services/Clinical Counseling in 2012 from Bellevue University in Bellevue, NE. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trust-Based Relational Intervention but also feel comfortable with other modalities depending on what might be most effective for the client. I know that there is always a modality that can be matched to the needs of the individual.
My style begins with being person-centered. I don't believe there are cookie-cutter answers to life's challenges, so I begin by learning about the client and what will best help them achieve their own goals. I have experience as both the client and the clinician, so I know how difficult it is to seek help and open ourselves up to vulnerability. I focus on empathy and connection in my approach to meeting the client's needs. I see therapy as a team approach to tackling life's complications, so I will work with you to determine measurable goals and achieve them.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, ADHD, Adoption and Foster Care, Attachment Issues, Blended Family Issues, Divorce and Separation, Domestic Violence, Family Problems, Military and Veterans Issues, Post-traumatic Stress, Self-Harm, Sexuality, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Attachment-Based Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

I became comfortable talking to Sadie Renander very quickly. Which given my distrust of therapists is saying a lot about how easy Sadie is to talk to. She has been helping me for a couple months now and i think she is definitely the best therapist that I could have been matched with.
