My name is Allese Renee. I am from Virginia and have traveled to many states. I have always worked in the humanities field.My approach is eclectic, meaning I am familiar with many theories and apply the best approach depending on the client’s needs. Sometimes that might mean narrative therapy one day and psychodynamic another day. I believe the client is the expert of their care and I am an assistant or guide with specialized knowledge. When requested, I tailor my approach with a Christian, non-denominational lens. This means I can pray during or after the session with the client, we reference God regarding the presenting issue and sometimes use Bible passages when applicable.Because I am a trained art therapist, I can introduce art into the session. If the client is opposed, we are not obligated to do art. Art therapy entails using media such as photography, pastels, clay, metals, words/poetry/books, acting, dancing and other creative expressions. However, there is still processing in that session just as in a talk therapy session. Personally, I love to read, write poetry, create new cooking recipes, and make art. I traveled around the US before landing in South Carolina. And, I love animals!
