I specialize in working with clients with life transitions, grief and loss, DBT Informed Therapy, depression, anxiety and CBT/Trauma Informed Therapy.
My clientele includes children, adolescents, teens and adults. My approach to therapy involves using research based methods to help clients improve mood, stabilize anxiety and accomplish their goals.

I work with our therapists to develop therapeutic approaches to treatment and by providing current, innovative clinical resources to our practice. I believe engaging in current professional development is essential to strengthening our skills as therapists.

Tiffany Baker, MSW, LCSWA
I am a licensed clinical therapist associate with several years of experience. I strongly believe that no one person is the same and that we are all uniquely made. We are not all made to fit into a perfect box of what society views us as, and my goal is to ensure that my clients are confident enough to step outside of that box and eventually have the tools to pull back that lens and navigate those tough moments with ease.
My clientele includes adolescents, teens, women, men and emerging adults. My approach to therapy is to help my clients learn to advocate for themselves in any situation that may arise in this journey of life. I practice from a strengths-based approach, where I always meet the client where they are. When focusing on their strengths and acknowledging some of their challenges, I help empower clients to overcome their anxieties and tap into their inner abilities to see their goals, both long and/or short term, come to fruition. I embrace an eclectic approach to therapy, meaning that I utilize a combination of techniques when working with clients, some may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Therapy, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
I am accepting clients with BCBS and self-pay.
I am a Licensed School Counselor with over 20 years in school counseling and education. I believe that all challenges we experience in life are opportunities to learn about ourselves and grow as individuals. As a Group Facilitator, it is my goal to focus on concepts of trust and creating a safe environment, so you feel free to process thoughts, develop healthy coping skills for improvement and growth.
My motto for life is "He who has a WHY to live for can bear almost any HOW." -Friedrich Nietzsche

You only have control over three things in YOUR life…The THOUGHTS you think, the IMAGES you visualize, and the ACTIONS you take.
As the Executive Assistant for Renewed Strength I am often the first voice people hear when inquiring about services. It can be a little daunting reaching out for help, but I take pride in making sure that whomever calls feels welcomed and supported. I have served as a caretaker in various stages of my life including teaching, ministry and community action. So in this role I serve as a caretaker for new clients. Each day I pray the support and information I provide inspires wisdom, strength, independence and courage for all.
My motto for life is "I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me."
