About me

Hello! Thank you for your interest in allowing me to assist you! I am grateful for this opportunity to be of service. I was licensed to practice as an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in April, 2017 for the state of Oklahoma, and have been practicing for 6 years with a community mental health agency in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I decided to take a break from community mental health and have been working with BetterHelp full time since March, 2021.

The majority of my clients have been children who are in the foster care system. But, child clients were also seen in schools, in their homes, and other places in the community. I have had adults on my case load who require assistance in managing mental health difficulties, so my client base has been varied. My experience is mostly in the areas of trauma, PTSD, complex PTSD, anxiety, depression, ADHD, ODD, Autism, grief, loss, abuse and neglect.

While familiar with most all therapy modalities, my preferred ones are:
* Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
* Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
* Play Therapy modalities, including but not limited to Theraplay techniques, Play Therapy techniques, Sand Tray techniques, Art Therapy and Music Therapy
* Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
* Trauma based therapies, ie., TFCBT, Theraplay, Play Therapy, Sand Tray, Art, Music, etc.
** I am in the process of obtaining my Registered Play Therapist and Infant Mental Health certifications and endorsement for both modalities.

My sessions usually begin from an attachment based theory. Many of my clients experience in different aspects of their life due to disrupted attachments in early childhood., so helping them to understand that attachment is at the root of many of the difficulties they are facing, often brings the relief they seek. My role as your therapist will be to guide, not dictate, and to help you discover the changes you feel are necessary for your own progress.

Thank you again and I look forward to working with you on your journey to healing.

Renee is a calming voice, and the voice of reason for me. Her attitude about life, people, and situations is so very similar to mine. Her personal experience and understanding is always on point. She helps me understand, grow and strengthen my resolve. Much appreciated!
