  • About the Owner, Renee D. Frierson-Briscoe, LPC, LMFT

    About Me

    I am a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist whose training has been focused primarily in Family Systems Theory. I am trained to work with individuals (adults as well as children), couples and families. My office is located just outside of Northwest Philadelphia in Jenkintown, PA and is easily accessible via public transportation.

    With 12+ years of training and experience working in the mental health field and as a graduate of La Salle University, I have worked with a broad range of clients. Among my areas of expertise are grief, depression, anxiety, trauma and attachment issues, especially as experienced by and with African Americans.  I also work with couples providing pre-marital as well as marital and relationship counseling. In any family the couple provides the foundation, so it is very important to work to create as well as strengthen the family’s foundation.

    I am an interactive, Solution-Focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to assist clients with effectively addressing their personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a personalized approach tailored to each client’s situation.  It is with compassion and understanding that I work with each individual/couple/family to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to achieving.
