Rennet’s practice incorporates how lived experiences of marginalization and structural inequality are held in the body. To treat both loud and silent trauma Rennet uses Somatic Experiencing, Compassionate Inquiry, and other treatment modalities such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Structural Family Therapy, and Emotion Focused Therapy. Her practice also offers EMDR for adults and children. Services are offered in person, teletherapy and video online.
