Kassel Therapy
Rena Kassel MA., LPC, NCC, AAPT

     As an MA, LPC-Clinical Mental Health Counselor, I help clients explore their thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviors. Therapeutic counseling allows the client to discover personal courage and strength to realistically approach and resolve personal issues. Counselor and client explore the behaviors that may disrupt relationships, work, education and spirituality. Often, clients discover the repetitive nature of their difficulties, issues which arise time and again within different contexts and relationships.  Over time, the nonjudgemental and accepting nature of clinical mental health counseling aids the client to reach a more clear self-understanding. This understanding fuels heartfelt committment to personal growth and the belief in the capacity to change. I work within clearly contracted, ethcial boundaries, with respect for my clients, their values, beliefs and cultures. I have education, training, and experience in empirically validated treatment modalities. I use Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief (SFBT), and Family Systems Therapies. When needed I draw upon Humanistic, Developmental, Existential and Gestalt Therapies. I have experience conducting Group Therapy and have been practicing individual, couples and family therapy for 3 years.
