Mental Health Workshops*

In this therapeutic workshop led by Renee Duricy, LCSW we’ll use experiential exercises and group discussion to turn our attention inward to connect up with our Self energy and begin to recognize and understand some of our various parts that serve to help and protect us but sometimes get in our way. We’ll begin the work of welcoming all parts of ourselves with love and compassion in a safe and empathic environment.

*Please note this is a workshop led by a licensed therapist to discuss and introduce strategies to support ongoing mental health in your own life. If you are experiencing a crisis or high acuity, we invite you to seek appropriate individual or group services specific to your needs, as this is not a replacement for that and want to make sure you receive the best care.

WhaleBeing Mental Health & Wellness Yoga Retreat - Renee from Valtina Health & Wellness

Renee Duricy, MSW, LCSW, CLC

I believe in the power of connection in the healing process – connection with ourselves, with others, and with the world around us. I create a safe space in which to explore those connections and what is getting in the way of healthy and meaningful relationships with yourself and others. My primary specialty is working with trauma and I have also worked with depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, maternal mental health, life transitions, and relationship issues. I believe that the answers are within each person and my role is to help you hear your inner voice, trust it, and have the courage to follow it. I primarily use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS) along with skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been practicing in a variety of settings from the Veterans Administration to community based clinics since 2000. I currently have a private practice in Salida, CO where I primarily work with adults and late adolescents. I also love teaching and I supervise social workers and other mental health practitioners who are working toward their licensure.
