Renee Trimble, MS, LPC, LCDC

My Passion:

Throughout my 25-year career as a medical professional, there were times I traveled a parallel journey as a counseling client. Like anyone seeking a therapist, I learned first-hand how difficult it can be to find just the right combination of counseling attributes—that magical marriage of competence and concern that makes it easy to become truly vulnerable with our most personal life issues. Finding that safe place to share my most intimate concerns did not come easily.


When I answered the heartfelt call to become a therapist, I was in a unique position to provide exactly the kind of counseling I had so long searched for - counseling that provides complete acceptance and respect for the client and their journey.  A non-judgmental safe place for exploration and healing. 


My Training:

I returned to school as an adult after winning an academic scholarship from Utah State University.   Graduating summa cum laude with a BS in Psychology, earning a Masters of Science in Mental Health Counseling with High Honors and my extensive field experience gives me the expertise to meet a wide variety of your mental health needs.


Therapeutic Approaches:

I am well versed in the latest counseling sciences, such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Certified in Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy.  As a member of the  National Registry of Marriage Friendly Therapists and personally committed to the institution of marriage, I help clients that are motivated to work on their relationship. 

Renee sees clients at the River Oaks Office Monday - Friday.
