Renee works with clients to unpack the impacts of racism that hold them back from feeling comfortable in their own skin. As a social worker with over 10 years of experience, Renee empowers clients experiencing depression, anxiety, and low self esteem to uncover their inner strengths, tap into their power, and grow into the most authentic versions of themselves.
Renee reminds clients that peace is possible, despite life’s challenges. Her goal is to support clients through those challenges to find the contentment they've been yearning for.
Renee practices from a strengths-based perspective, identifying and building on clients’ strengths to empower them to take charge of their lives. To live, not simply exist. Renee also takes into account the client's overall situation, identifying life transactions and environmental pressures like work, family, and relationships. She uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients recognize their unhelpful thoughts, patterns, and behaviors and change them to work towards their goals.
Renee empowers clients to become their most vibrant selves and enjoy the process of self liberation. This journey won’t happen overnight, but Renee is committed to working with each client to become who they were meant to be.
