I’m Ren Elliott, a Licensed Professional Counselor based out of Missouri, and I specialize in the treatment of trauma, depression, and anxiety, as well as assisting my clients through any kind of life transition or identity concerns. My approach is person-centered with an emphasis on self-compassion and breaking the shame cycle. No longer should you beat yourself down for the barriers you’ve dealt with; I want to help my clients start new cycles of being comfortable with themselves and be genuine to who they are as well as reclaim their personal sense of power.

You’re feeling broken. I can help you pick up the pieces. You want more out of life. Maybe you want a more healthy, vibrant marriage. Maybe you want to let go of anger and resentments from past traumas that are stealing your peace and joy today. Maybe you want to say “no” more-without feeling guilty. You are not your problems. You are full of possibilities that are just waiting to be discovered.

During my career, I have worked with both individual and group settings, including adults with people living with HIV, veterans, incarcerated people and transgender/gender variant individuals. These populations included people with depression, bi-polar disorder, personality disorders, anxiety, PTSD and depression. I co-facilitated a group for trans youth and co-coordinated it for 6 years. As a proud bisexual, trans man, I love to work with my LGBT communities. I celebrate kinky and poly people. I strive to be an imperfect ally to non-binary trans people and people of color.

No matter how hard you try, it's never enough. The thoughts never stop and it's impossible to focus or get anything done. Keeping your head above water seems like the best hope of getting through your day as things continue to pile up. It's exhausting and and your motivation becomes non-existent. You try to push through by numbing and holding your emotions in but it isn't working. You pretend everything is "okay" in hopes people don't see how bad things really are but you snap and take it out on those you love the most. You don't want to keep going this way but you don't know what else to do. You need help - SOON!

I work best with people who are looking to talk to someone who feels like a real person, not a stuffy, dry dude in a suit. I work with a wide variety of issues, needs, and goals, but I also have a special focus on matters related to sex and gender. All you have to know is that you want your life to be different, and we can figure out next steps together. We will explore obstacles that are keeping you from living your best life in a warm, nonjudgmental space. I know you're tired of hurting; I will support you while you grow and gain new skills to feel better and change your life.

“I can’t do this anymore”. What started as occasional irritability, unhappiness, and overwhelm now lingers day after day. Your emotional and mental reserves have dried up. You know there is more to life than just "getting through the day". You’re trying to live the life you desire. But nothing feels like it makes sense or has any real meaning. With all the demands of work, family, relationships, external circumstances, and even yourself, this is not the life you expected. You know that if something doesn't change, your heart, soul, or mind won't survive.

Life happens, and at times, its challenges cause us to experience intense emotions or feelings of defeat. These challenges can create complications, especially if it is traumatic. Whether that trauma is due to an unexpected event, like the death of a loved one, sexual assault, recent incarceration, or something else entirely, you should not have to navigate life's challenges alone. I want to partner with you through your challenges and assist in developing strategies that will support in smoothing out life's transitions. I'm a passionate and encouraging therapist with a strong belief that there's hope through all life's challenges.

Do you ever wish others would put in half of the effort you put in into the relationship? Are you tired of initiating plans and not being reciprocated? Do you feel like you don’t have a voice or even feel you don’t know who you are anymore? People-pleasing behaviors may have kept us safe from conflicts and dangers but could have also costed us resentment, low self-esteem, anger, anxiety, and depression. What if we can learn to love ourselves the way we love others? What if self-love doesn’t mean we stop caring for others, but we start caring for ourselves the way we deserve to be?

Do you feel stuck? Do you feel like you are on survival mode most if not all the time? Do you prefer an approach that addresses both the body and the mind? I am here with you. Not everyone is the same and not every style of therapy will fit you. I have said yes to all those questions and trained in different modalities. BUT something was still missing because of how I felt in the body was not addressed often. I can understand if you feel the same way. I determined to find that something and believe Somatic Experiencing connects the dots for me and I want to help you.

Sometimes life can feel like you're trying to run underwater while it seems like everyone else is running on a track. We can feel hopeless, stuck, and unsure of where to turn. I hope to provide a place that feels like a safe landing pad amongst the chaos. Together, I hope we can explore your pain, joy, fears, and hopes so that you are able to move towards living whole-heartedly. I am passionate about working with individuals from college-aged and older to work together in identifying root themes and growing your coping skills.

Back-to-school grind got you stressed? I can help you apply methods that work regarding daily planning, organization, and systems development tailored to your needs. When you walk into my office, the space is yours. Dim the lights and kick back (I may do the same). I meet my clients where they are at and work at your speed. Your agenda is my agenda, and I promise to keep it real. I work with older teens and adults of all ages who might be dealing with ADHD, personality disorders, substance use, anxiety, depression, panic, relationship difficulties, multicultural relations, school/career-related concerns, and self-esteem.

Is your mind going constantly? Are you longing to relax, be present, and enjoy your life, but instead are feeling overwhelmed and defeated? The people I work with are intelligent, determined, and also incredibly frustrated. They are an amazing support for others but often incredibly hard on themselves. My clients tend to dazzle everyone around them one minute and feel like an imposter, completely crushed by the details and stuck in a state of struggle the next. I love working with entrepreneurs, college students, creative spirits, burnt out helpers, sweary moms, and anyone else trying to win the daily battle with a busy brain.

Hello there, athlete (and sport parents)! I'm glad you're here. Being an athlete is amazing (most days), but it comes with challenges. Maintaining a high level of performance AND enjoying your sport experience can be tough. Maybe you've lost your confidence, can't shake anxious thoughts, or you're afraid of letting others down. Maybe you're feeling the demands of athlete life. You're probably doing a lot of traveling, training, practicing and competing, sometimes sacrificing a personal life for your sport goals. Challenges with coaches and teammates happen too. Seeking support is such a strong choice. We'll work through it together.
