Ready for REAL Change?
My work combines the ancient healing & wisdom traditions of Shamanism & Buddhist philosophy with the best of Western therapy & hypnosis to provide powerful medicine for the mind, body & spirit.
Awaken the power of your authentic self
Transform issues at their core.
Gentle, effective tools of body-based mindfulness, hypnotherapy and guided inner journeys
Release destructive patterns, negative beliefs and past trauma.
Establish healthy, mature and constructive ways of being and relating.
Snackable teachings on spirituality, psychology & all things personal growth. Renee shares her 30+ years as a recovering addict, therapist and Shamanic healer with depth and humor. This short show offers a wide range of topics designed to evoke and provoke your own self development.
Each segment provides practical tips and tools to nudge and nourish your own authentic self. From anxiety and archetypes to death and depossession, Renee delivers moving client stories and her own crazy life experiences in her raw, no non-nonsense, Boston-style.
Calling Renee was one of the best decisions I have ever made, one of the greatest gifts I could give myself. Warmth, peace, empathy, deep insight, spirituality and healing with a touch of laughter. I finally trust a therapist and her process 100%.

I recently attended one of Renee's workshops. Amazing! The time went too quickly and when it was over, I left with new insights and inner serenity. She shared her wisdom, spiritual practice and incorporated myth into the mix. Wow! Can't wait for the next workshop, retreat or whatever she does.

The work I do with Renee in one session would take months in other therapy I have done. When I finish our sessions, I can actually feel that I have grown or changed.

In this work all time is present time and all pain can be healed.
The goal of soul retrieval and inner child work is wholeness, personal power. We let go of what no longer serves us. We heal the past to be fully present for our lives today.
Healing our childhood wounds can radically shift our life experience and dissolve old patterns of fear, self-criticism, self-harm and addiction.
Many of us have experienced soul or power loss from abuse, neglect or self rejection.
In this work energy and power are understood as real things that have form and substance. In this way we can work directly with imbalances of life energy and restore you to health and wholeness physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Discover your soul's purpose.
Mentorship is for people ready to commit to deeper personal growth and alignment with Universal Life Force. This process will clarify and develop the unique gifts only you can bring into the world.
Learn powerful tools for healing, insight and transformation and integrate these principles and skills into your life work, your relationships and your creativity.
I will be your guide and companion as you travel the inner journey to personal power, wisdom and destiny.
Negative Energy Clearing & Spirit Release
Negative thoughts, feelings and even disease, can be seen as parasites
that feed on suffering and fear. They deplete our life energy, make us sick, keep us stuck, sabotage our positive efforts and even urge us to violence, self harm and suicide.
Nothing lives in our psychic space without our permission on some level. Usually our unhealthy habits of mind and behavior are rooted in outdated survival skills. Sometimes we unwittingly play host to the pain or negativity or others, even to dead or disembodied spirits.
Safely clearing negative or spirit energy and releasing defenses and relational patterns that no longer serve us is extremely transformative.
Intuition & Divination
There are many paths to connect with the larger consciousness system and I find Tarot to be both fun and informative.
The 78 cards in the Tarot deck represent every live circumstance and inner challenge in life. Working with these archetypes or symbols can offer a fresh and deeply intuitive approach to our circumstances.
Tarot readings are on Zoom. I work with multiple decks in a reading and use my own intuitive skills and intention to bring clarity, insight and affirmation to your own inner knowing.
Your session did more for my healing than many years of therapy. I've left the toxic mess behind. I'm living in a new place, cooking food I like, meditating and laugh out loud happy. I'm forever grateful for your gift of getting rid of my past negativity. Thank You!

I am strong and myself again after nearly losing everything. Renee was a light in my darkest time.
Renee is a wonderful practitioner. I have worked with her for 6 years and I am so grateful for her amazing work. She has done more for me than any of the several other practitioners I have seen put together. I did not see real change in my symptoms until I met Renee. Thanks so much.

I'm a Boston-born hypnotherapist and Shamanic healer who guides people to heal and transform on a soul level. My individual sessions, workshops, groups and mentorship programs in Spiritual Psi-Kology offer a unique blend of neo-Shamanism and Buddhist philosophy with depth psychology and body-based mindfulness.
I bring my 30+ years of experience as a recovering addict and ex-crazy person to my weekly podcast OpenDoor Growth, sharing snackable teachings on spirituality, psychology and all things personal growth.
All of the work I do with clients, I have experienced in my own therapy and personal growth work. I have a Masters degree in Transpersonal Psychology and am a certified clinical hypotherapist. For 14 years I studied DepthHypnosis, Shamanism and Energy Work with Dr. Isa Gucciardi and have been a student of Lifespan Integration, Hakomi Method and Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and healing methods. Through my own inner work and practice, I have come to believe that spiritual and intuitive methods of healing are more effective and transformative than the more intellectually and physically based approach of Western psychology. I am NOT a licensed therapist. I am a healer, a mentor and a guide on the deepest levels. The work of Spiritual Psi-Kology is intended as an alternative and a compliment to Western psychology and many find this work to be a great addition to traditional talk therapy, psychology and psychiatry.
My book, workbook and guided audio series Allies & Demons: Working With Spirit For Power And Healing is available on Amazon and Audible. Allies and Demons guides you through the 15 basic inner journeys of Spiritual Psi-Kology. This powerful book is filled with inspiring client stories, soul level wisdom, and my personal journey of healing and empowerment.
I know the extremes of success and failure. From bankruptcy to grad school, from divorce and homelessness to motherhood and art teacher, from addict and alcoholic to lead of Women's March 2017, I bring the wisdom gained from my many life experiences to my students and clients world-wide.
