Who is Charlene Rene?
Charlene Rene Collins, also known as Charlene Rene was born in Hawaii, raised in southern California, but grew up in Pensacola, FL. I am a product of the one and only University of Florida’s Gator Nation where I received my BA degree.
Upon graduation, I set out on a path of finding myself and helping my community in the process, eventually leading me to pursue my graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I truly believe everything we are, and everything we do, goes back to our roots, starting with our own families. Until we are able to heal what struggles we face internally, it is difficult for us to show up fully and healthy in the outward areas of our lives. Helping individuals and families to heal, grow, and thrive is my goal.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and two sons, reading, and jam roller skating. I love music, colorful Converse shoes, and as a HUGE Golden Girls fan, of course I love cheesecake!
Charlene is amazing and has changed my life in so many ways. She is a compassionate listener and always has a way of eloquently summing up my feelings so I can understand them from a different perspective. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who wants to practice self care and address their mental health and well being.
Incredible counseling services! Charlene is remarkable! Very satisfied.
Charlene, has been a very good listener and has brought to light many interesting and helpful points regarding our relationship dynamic and how we can better ourselves as individuals and as a couple. It has been great having a 3rd party listen and provide advice on what the next steps are to improve our relationship.
