About Me


How I Work

With my advanced training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), I will help you get to know yourself in a new, deep way. Together, we'll uncover and heal the parts of you that you may feel ashamed of and we'll celebrate the parts you may feel good about but sometimes downplay.  We'll find clarity on the barriers that are standing in your way of creating positive change in your life, and we'll get you "un-stuck" so that you can move forward. I will help you get through this difficult time with thoughtfulness and courage, so that you emerge transformed: stronger, clearer, more grounded, and more resilient than ever before-- and ready for the rest of your life.

My Training

I received a Masters of Social Work at NYU and a Bachelors in American Studies at Barnard College. I have trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy with the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP), as well as experiential, attachment-focused psychotherapy with the AEDP Institute. I integrate techniques from other experiential therapies as well, including Hakomi, Internal Family Systems, and Gestalt. I have worked with countless twenty-somethings in a variety of settings, including not only my private practice, but also in collaborative workspaces, health clinics, and hospitals.

Rena is an empathic listener who always seems to know the right words to say. She is skilled at understanding complex dynamics and providing just the right amount of support to be the best you possible.
