THERAPIST 


Hello! I’m Rena Arwood, a licensed professional counselor who enjoys working with diverse adults struggling with persistent mental health diagnoses, trauma, addiction, and grief issues. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology, with a Behavioral Health Concentration, from Tusculum University. I then completed my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Carson-Newman University. I began my career in community mental health, IOP, and then residential treatment, working with chronic and persistent mental health disorders and addiction.

I am certified in DBT and EMDR-trained in addition to experience and training in CBT, ACT, and Reality Therapy. As an integrative therapist, I believe in working collaboratively with clients to identify individualized treatment plan goals that not only improve outcomes but also increase the potential to gain awareness and power over maladaptive behaviors.
