A Safe Space

success starts at home

We live in a broken world. There is not one person who has not experienced heartache, loss, trauma and/or broken relationship.

The hurt from these experiences can wreak havoc in our lives-depression, anxiety, addiction...the list can be long. Additionally, the curious thing is that hurt people often times hurt other people. It is as if the 'sick cycle' can repeat itself.

Dr. Renee St Jacques believes there is another way to live. She is passionate about change. There’s no external success without healing at the root— at the heart and at the home. What would relief, healing and freedom look like in your life and/or in your relationship?

Getting Started   

MAKE an appointment

Finding the right counselor is all about fit. Contact Dr. Renee St Jacques for a free brief phone consultation to walk you through your needs and the scope of your goals. If it is a fit, an in-person appointment can be made.

CANCELLATION AND LATE POLICY

Appointments are generally 50 minutes in length.  Your appointment begins at the stated time, not when you arrive.  Once an appointment has been scheduled you will be expected to pay for it unless you provide 24 hours notice of cancellation. The only time Dr. St Jacques will waive this fee is in the event of serious or contagious illness or emergency.

If you are not present for your scheduled session during the first 15 minutes (unless having telephoned us you might be late), it will be construed by Dr. St Jacques that you are a “no-show."

Depending upon how late you arrive, it will then be determined if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session.

In addition, new clients may find Dr. Renee St Jacques’ full consent form as a helpful resource to learn more about what the therapy process entails.
