Hi! I’m Rena. I am a passionate, feminist-oriented, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and a trauma survivor. My focus is on working with women, ages 18 and older, to overcome and heal. My motivation comes from the growth and inner strength of each and every client I work with. My goal is to help clients heal, and from that healing, experience their lives in a way that will bring them peace, stability, and empowerment. I believe in the healing power of mindfulness which is interwoven into all my therapeutic approaches.
I am EMDR trained which allows me to provide evidence-based therapy for complex and single-incident trauma, anxiety/stressor-related disorders, and mood disorders. In addition to EMDR, I utilized cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), HeartMath techniques, self-compassion mindfulness, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindful/relaxation techniques, and hypnotherapy as integrative approaches with EMDR, or as standalone approaches for those who prefer not to engage in EMDR.
