Hello! My name is René, and I would love to sit with you for a spell. I am a counselor, in the State of Texas, offering online therapy.
Counselor in , TX
Supervised by Mark Cagle, LPC-S
I come from a military family, and I have extensive history working with Veterans and their families. I specialize in PTSD, mTBI/TBI, justice involvement, addiction concerns, and entering the civilian society/workforce/education system (transition). I can help you land that second career. I can also aid in VA disability applications and upgrades, due to mental health. MIL communities of expertise: Special Warfare, Medical Corps, Police, Infantry, across all Branches.
I have been working with survivors of abuse, for at least a decade. I most commonly work with persons who have survived childhood neglect and abuse, sexual abuse/assault, emotional abuse, physical abuse, financial abuse, controlling relationships and systems, gaslighting and manipulation, abuses at the hands of religious leaders, and the weaponizing of the justice system. Abuse can be found in nearly every community. My moral stance is that abuse is neither deserved, nor is it sought.
PTSD is very real. This is a normal reaction to an abnormal circumstance. I have worked with persons living with PTSD, as well as other disabilities, for 14+ years. I have conducted research on PTSD, and continue to write about the realities of PTSD. I not only understand the daily experiences of living with PTSD, I am also quite familiar with some of the leading therapies used to combat PTSD. I am trained in cognitive processing therapy (CPT), and can offer this brief therapy to you.
I have been trained to deliver CPT to persons in my care. I have aided persons in feeling reduced PTSD symptoms, with the CPT protocol, since 2020.
I have used Psychodynamic principles in my work with persons in my care, since 2009. I believe that the relationship I share with persons in my care, is what allows us to take a holistic look at what a person experiences in their day to day life.
