Hello, My name is Rene’.  I believe women to be one of the most powerful resource in the world. Though it is a challenge and requires continuous relevant education to serve you on a level of excellence, this is my charge.  I completed my graduate student internship counseling women with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders at Akoma Counseling Concepts, LLC.  I  completed my bachelors degree in psychology and graduated with my masters degree in mental Health Counseling from Bowie State University in Bowie, MD with honors for achieving "Summa Cu Laude” status. I am licensed to practice as a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor with certification in Drug and Alcohol Addiction. I am practicing under the clinical supervision of Shivonne Odom, LCPC, LPC, PMH-C. 

My goal is to serve each woman in a way which promote love, joy, peace, and unity between heart, mind, and soul. Until our journey, shalom…
