Hello There!
My name is Renee Kumaga. I am a culturally-affirming social worker and human being. I’m Ghanaian American and I’ve been exposed to various cultures and faiths throughout my lifetime, which I bring into the therapy room. I have a varied skill set in providing services to adults, couples, and families. I seek to provide quality care and services with a holistic perspective-catering to one’s emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.

Are you struggling to let go of past hurt or are you stuck in the same patterns in your relationship or work? Are you struggling to move forward from a past relationship? Do you keep choosing the wrong partner, but you don’t know why? Are you having difficulty setting boundaries with family and friends? Do your parents struggle to understand you due to immigration, education or cultural differences? Are you feeling alone in your pain? Is shame, anger, low self-esteem, resentment, sadness or anxiety holding you back? Do you notice that you’re engaging in the same maladaptive behaviors as your parents? Do you want to better understand who you are and why you cannot break your patterns? Do you need new tools to help you cope with the challenges of life? Allow me the opportunity to support you while you navigate through your emotional suffering and identify healthier ways to cope. You’ve had to survive for many years, let’s work on you thriving.
