Renee Frierson-Briscoe, LPC MFT
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor whose training has been focused primarily in Marital and Family Therapy. 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 8+ years of training and experience as a marriage and family therapist and as a graduate of La Salle University, specializing in family systems, 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.
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 highly 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 accomplishing.
