Contact Renée Today!
I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with the families of the Lake Norman area. It is my mission to provide a safe, warm, and welcoming space for clients to explore, conquer, and overcome their everyday challenges in a therapeutic setting. I am inspired by my clients' natural abilities to grow and develop, and thus aim to provide an atmosphere that nourishes and draws out inner strengths that can assist my clients in conquering their challenges. I work with a strength-based, person-centered approach, meaning I work to encourage my clients to seek, find, and utilize their inner strengths in a non-directive and empowering way.
In addition to my clinical mental health licensure, I am also one of the few nationally Certified Play Therapists in the LKN area. I am specifically trained to meet the emotional and developmental needs of ages 2-12 through therapeutic means. I integrate encouragement, responsibility, and wellness into every session and provide an atmosphere that fosters independence, growth, and healing for children of all ages. I employ creative methods, such as art and music, when working with the younger population in order to allow my clients to express themselves through methods other than traditional talk-therapy.
