Treatment specialties and clinical interests:  I enjoy working with individuals of all ages experiencing challenges with mood, depression, and anxiety. I have a particular interest in working with individuals struggling with anxiety, micro-traumas, aging, grief and loss, and depression.

Clinical Approaches: I typically use the person-centered approach. I have also used cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, art, and play therapy techniques. I have training in Sand Tray, Nutritional, and Integrated Therapy.

Education and Experience: I obtained a Master of Art degree in Community Counseling from Eastern New Mexico University in 2006. I worked with adolescents and children with various mood disorders, PTSD, and attachment issues at the Children’s Treatment Center for nine years. As a Behavior Support Consultant, I worked with adolescents and adults with intellectual disabilities for four years and supported Central NM Community College students with disabilities by determining and giving accommodations to help them succeed in the classroom for about a year. In addition, I’ve worked with individual psychotherapy clients on and off over the years.

Personal interests: I love various forms of art. I also have a love of learning whether it is about a rare disability or a therapeutic technique. I like to align my research and education with the population that I am counseling at the time, so I can adapt my clinical techniques to fit the current population I support.

** We are working on getting Renee approved to see clients with the insurance companies our group is contracted with (BCBS, Presbyterian, Western Sky, True Health NM, and Medicaid). Until she is approved, you have the following options if you are interested in working with Renee:

  • You can request to be on her waiting list until she is approved with your insurance
  • You can pay out of pocket for sessions ($125 plus tax for the first session and $100 plus tax for follow ups) until she is approved
  • You can see if you have out-of-network benefits and you can pay out of pocket for sessions and we can give you a “Super Bill” to submit to your insurance for reimbursement until she is approved with your insurance
