Therapist in Exton, Pennsylvania Renee Richey, LPC

Renee Richey, LPC

Walking into a therapist’s office for the first time can be stressful, with a lot of uncertainty. Trying to find a new therapist who you will feel compatible with can be frustrating, with understandable skepticism. I believe that sessions should include non-judgment from the therapist and a willingness to meet the client where they are in terms of readiness for change. The overall goal is to empower clients with awareness and strategies to manage life’s situations and stressors.

My name is Renee, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. The beginning of my career included offering in-home and community based services to clients with traumatic brain injuries and disabilities, which I did for four years. I then transitioned to working in a mental health partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), and establishing an outpatient group program (OP); all three modalities were primarily group therapy settings. While I greatly enjoyed group therapy because it can offer support that individual therapy does not, I transitioned to providing individual therapy services for older adolescents and adults.

I believe it is important to meet clients where they are in the process of change; therapy can be overwhelming, and that is okay. The goal would be to allow the opportunity for non-judgment, active listening, feedback, and teaching coping skills. I have training in
areas of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, Humanistic, trauma focused/trauma competency and EMDR, solution focused, mindfulness based (MB), and strength focused.

One statement I often make to clients is: you will get out of therapy as much as you put into it. Regardless of how uncertain you may be about therapy, try to approach it with an open mind.
