Renee Ritter provides psychotherapy services to children, youth, adults, and families, specialized in trauma and attachment healing, and recovery from stressful life events and transitions. Clients are supported to explore and understand themselves in context to their circumstances and history, discover the root causes of their distress and symptoms, and tap into their own adaptive healing capabilities. They will address the limiting beliefs holding them back, deepen their connection with themselves and others, improve their communication and healthy relationships, and integrate their learning to lead a fulfilling life.
