” I had first talked to Renee when I was new to the word of mental health and my personal depression and anxiety. That was maybe 3 years ago, and I was so excited to find out she didnâ€™t actually leave Harmony, because she was the only therapist I felt I had a connection with. She is always so compassionate and kind to me, and makes me feel safe with her, safe to talk to her about my feelings. I opened up to her in this one session more than I opened up to my last two therapists from the last 3 years. She always has a gentle smile on her face, and is always honest and helpful with different methods of coping and things that would help improve my quality of life. I remembered her name after 3 years. A wonderful therapist, and an even better friend. “
