Learn more about therapy with me!

If you’re looking for a therapist, I’m going to guess you’ve spent a lot of time trying to figure yourself out. You may ask yourself “why” a lot, and you may have come up with some answers, but mostly come up with more questions.

Unraveling the complexities of your past, present and future can do that. You may switch back and forth between feeling numb or shut down and feeling ungrounded and “all over the place”.

As a therapist who specializes in trauma and relationships, I can help you build the necessary awareness and skills to address your emotional challenges, in order to gain a greater sense of connection and well-being. I can help you learn how to listen to yourself, know yourself, trust yourself and develop the inner resources to pivot where you need to, connect deeper where you want to and give yourself the love, compassion and validation that has been out of reach.

About Renee MacDonald, LCSW

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of NY, ME and FL. I graduated with a Masters in Social Work from Adelphi University in 2005 and before that with a B.A. in Sociology from SUNY New Paltz.

I’ve worked in mental health for over 15 years. I’ve been fortunate to have had a lot of great career opportunities across the mental health and medical fields (in both inpatient and outpatient settings) including being a therapist. I have had jobs that I loved (and some that I didn’t love as much). I taught graduate school social work students for several years, too.

Being a therapist has always felt like home to me and it’s where I do my best work. I’m grateful for the opportunity I am given to help others.

If you’re ready to feel better and are willing to put in the work….please don’t hesitate to contact me here. If we talk and discover it’s not a good fit, I’ll gladly help you find another therapist who might be.
