Rene works as a counselor, therapist, and life coach with PCS-Counseling. She received her Bachelor of Science with High Honors and her Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from Madonna University. Rene has trained in multiple therapeutic techniques including Psychodynamic, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Strategic Intervention Coaching and Mindfulness Training. She specializes in depression, trauma, obesity issues, and individuals struggling with a variety of life issues and challenges. Rene also provides psychological testing and assessment for adults.
Rene uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or Training (ACT) which cultivates acceptance, mindfulness and openness to experience as a very effective model for life coaching. With ACT, clients develop mindfulness skills which will enable them to fundamentally change their relationship with painful thoughts and feelings. When practicing these skills in everyday life, painful feelings and unhelpful thoughts have much less impact and influence. Instead of wasting time and energy in a fruitless battle with inner experiences, ACT allows her clients to invest that energy to take action – guided by their deepest values.
Rene has years of experience in helping others to achieve their goals and dreams. She is passionate about the ability of individuals to change and works closely with her clients to understand their goals and provide a supportive and collaborative environment. Rene does both short and long term work and has flexible scheduling including night and weekend appointments. She has some openings available for a sliding fee scale as needed.
