Feeling alone and not having all the answers to your circumstance can be distressing. You no longer need to feel isolated and uncertain. Step into a safe, nurturing therapeutic relationship and a peaceful healing space. You will be supported in gaining personal insight, a deeper understanding of your past and present, and begin to strengthen your connection within and with others.
My supportive guidance aims to take you on a path of improved mental health and wellness for you, and your family. When working with people of all ages, I seek to understand your needs and the ideal horizon point, and move towards them.
Growing into the best version of yourself often means doing something different from yesterday. I look forward to discovering new solutions together and being this journey of change with you.
Renee Ritter, Dip, BA, MSW, RSW
Some of my own childhood experiences took me on a path of healing, self discovery, and determination. We cannot always choose our life circumstances but we can grow and heal to overcome them.
As your therapist I will bring wisdom from my own life experiences of change and healing along with knowledge from extensive training and professional experience. I have a blended academic background with an earned Social Service Worker Diploma from Sheridan College, a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Waterloo, and a Masters of Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University. I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. I have completed advanced training in trauma and relational therapeutic work for young people and adults.
My work with children, youth, adults, and families spans over 20 years in healthcare, educational, and community-based settings both in Canada and internationally. I embrace and value working with diverse populations. I have expertise working with clients who are struggling with trauma, relational struggles, anxiety, mood concerns, addictions, inattention, learning and school issues, disruptive emotions, behavioural concerns, and parenting.
