Renee Avis, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
People ask me why I love the work I do so much.
I love the work that I have done with others and will do with you for several reasons…..
- Having the privilege of guiding you through moments of uncertainty, anxiety and discomfort to places of balance and inner peace.
- Meeting you where you are in your struggles. From there we work on building a trusting, connected and recovery focused journey.
- Guiding you through your journey. Challenging and supporting you through this journey can include, eating disorders, body image, postpartum depression/anxiety and struggles you may face with being a woman/girl in this world that can be difficult to navigate.
A Bit About Me
I believe it is important you know a little bit about me before coming in to your first therapy session. Knowing a few things about me, and what is important to me in the work we will do together will, I hope, lower any of the anxiety you may have about starting your personal journey.
I grew up near the beach and have always felt a sense of peace and happiness when my toes are in the sand and I am watching and listening to the waves role onto the beach. I have created my office so that I can share this sense of peace and calmness with you in each session that we spend together.
I spent my Undergraduate years living in the Northern Virginia area truly enjoying my time at George Mason University, where I received my BA in Psychology.
A little more than a year after graduating from GMU, my husband and I found ourselves in Atlanta, Georgia working on our graduate degrees. I received my Masters in Counseling from Argosy University.
I have since spent the last 11 years happily working in treatment facilities and private practice fulfilling my passion as a therapist.
