Hello. My name is Rena and I help people feel better about themselves, their relationships and their lives. I know that life can be very challenging and a person can feel many unpleasant emotions such as anxiety, hopelessness, and frustration. But life is also full of joy and beauty. Together, we discover and work to overcome the obstacles that get in the way of your happiness. I truly care for and admire the people I work with. My goal is for you to feel the same about yourself. Compassion allows you to investigate all parts of yourself; identifying the beliefs and behaviors that negatively impact your life; giving you the power to take positive actions. You learn to tolerate your emotions, release them in healthy ways, and uncover the important messages hidden within them. Your emotions become your guides to self-care.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to individual and couple's therapy, I am passionate about the benefits of group therapy; not only because it is more affordable than individual therapy, but I believe that group therapy provides a heightened "in the moment" opportunity to gain insights into yourself and others.

There is availability in my Depression Support and Therapy group on Thursday evenings.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love people. Every client is a unique and intricate person that I have the honor of getting to know. It is very rewarding for me to be able to provide a caring, safe environment for people to learn and grow.
