What We Do

Care that fits your unique needs
At Rinnovare Counseling Center, we partner with you to create a customized treatment plan using a combination of evidence-based counseling approaches, such as:

Anger management

While reducing anger is one goal of anger-management treatment, it also places great focus on developing and growing healthier responses to situations that lead to “harmful anger.” This program includes (at a minimum) an overview of anger problems and use of an anger log, as well as work to understand the nature of anger, the role of trigger thoughts, and anger management skills/concepts. We also spend time focusing on brain functioning, cognitive distortions; plus the roles of communication and assertiveness, empathy, stress, and consequences. 

Animal-assisted therapy

In psychotherapy, this involves using animals to help you recover from and cope with mental-health disorders. Activities include holding, grooming, feeding, and playing with the animal during your counseling session.

Cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy

This model assumes behaviors, thoughts, and feelings all affect one another, and that changes in one area affect other areas too. The work includes tasks and strategies designed to help you re-evaluate beliefs and then decide whether or not these beliefs are accurate or desirable to continue holding. We also work to alter behavioral responses using tools like mindful meditation, practical problem solving, and stress management.

Dynamic psychotherapy

This can help you understand how your unconscious feelings and thoughts affect the ways you act, react, think, feel, and relate. This type of psychotherapy aims to help you experience life more deeply, enjoy more satisfying relationships, resolve painful conflicts, and better integrate all the parts of your personality.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress. EMDR therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain.

Experiential therapy

Here, we use recreational and expressive activities, such as music, arts and crafts, animal care, and guided imagery to identify, explore, and release repressed negative emotions associated with past and present relationships and experiences.

Family systems therapy

A defining feature of family systems therapy is the idea that you can better understand your symptoms by recognizing the system of relationships you function in. We don’t attribute problems and symptoms to the family or to you, but look at how they emerge from the interaction of all components. This approach aims to avoid blaming, placing guilt, or making accusations within the family system and, instead, works to improve overall family functioning by altering the exchanges between family members. It is the responsibility of each member to reflect on themselves and make changes that support the well-being of all other family members.


The goal of psychoeducation is to improve quality of life through increased knowledge and understanding of psychological conditions and their impact on you and your loved ones. It is often used in the treatment of anxiety disorders, personality disorders, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, and clinical depression.

Relapse-prevention therapy

A form of cognitive behavioral therapy, relapse prevention therapy is designed to teach you to identify relapse cycles and to create intervention strategies. The goal is to reduce the risk of relapse through increased self-awareness and self-management.
