About

Rennicke & Associates is a family.

A family bound together by a shared passion to cultivate genuine client relationships and to collaborate in their growth and healing.
As professionals and voracious learners, we’re at the leading edge of the latest forms of clinical training and specialized in the application of advanced therapies. We know the evidence base and push beyond it.

As people, we are free from the dogma of our industry; just every day, transparent, authentic folks who care. We’d like to think we’d be pretty good company over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Our therapists are encouraged to be accessible, compassionate and open to sharing their personal experiences.

We know that empathy and creativity can create a safe, fun and playful environment where clients can explore and discover their true selves, especially when coupled with affirmation and celebration of the multiplicities of their cultures and identities.

We don’t shock
We never judge
We are only here to help our clients…
To reach beyond coping mechanisms
To remove negative bias
To see themselves through kind eyes
To rebuild healthy respectful relationships
To reform/deepen their connections and community

And like all good families
…we are wonderfully, imperfectly human and radically accepting.
