Denise Renye, MEd, MA, PsyD, Psychologist in San Francisco
Welcome! I am a certified sexologist and licensed psychologist invested in creating a safe space to explore your life, relationships, intimacy (with yourself and others), sensuality and sexuality in depth. Working together, we will build upon your strengths and expand your life's potential by tapping into your undiscovered aspects, creativity and intuition. My approach is direct, open and collaborative. We will work together so that your time and resources are respected.
My practice is unique as I use techniques of traditional talk psychotherapy, creative/expressive arts, nature-based sessions, and holistic coaching. My approach spans psychodynamic, mindfulness, transpersonal psychology, understanding body-mind connection, and whole person concept. I also offer both therapy and wellness coaching appointments on the phone and online.
Each person is unique while having universal experiences. We are all beings that are complex and strong and delicate and simple. Together we will consider how mental and physical health impact one another and increase your choices and possibilities in life.

Denise Renye's Groups

Parents of Children with Autism: Puberty/Sexuality

This group will provide opportunity for active participation through interactive discussion, exercises and questions. Participants will: * Have an increased level of comfort discussing puberty and sexuality with co-parent(s)/other caregivers * Discuss specific vignettes or personal experiences to gain increased patience, confidence and understanding * Gain resources for further support on navigating the sometimes rocky terrain of puberty and sexuality * Learn basic mindfulness techniques to deal with challenging times in parenting. I worked as an Early Interventionist with parents and their children and have extensive experience coaching parents around topics of sexuality, gender, puberty and development.

Mindfulness Group for Sex Workers

In this group, you will engage in exercises and group dynamic work. This group runs on 6-8 week cycles and meets for 6 sessions. No mindfulness experience necessary. This group is for self identified sex workers. The group may focus on areas of life coaching, financial organization resources, wellness and health, community building, work/life balance, and dealing with stress and burn out. I have experience working with self identified sex workers in both individual and group settings. This group has been described as helpful both personally and professionally for the group members.
