Wayne Riendeau View Specialties



I am committed to providing a safe, compassionate and supportive environment for you, in order to help you navigate the various life challenges we all face.  My counseling approach is to seek to understand your specific situation and together, we will focus on the issues that motivated you to contact me in the first place.
 
As a Christian, I believe that God is crazy-in-love with us, and as human beings, we have infinite worth in His eyes. 
 
Because I believe this to my core, I treat every one of my clients with the utmost dignity and respect, and I pray that each person I get the privilege of working with will come away with a renewed sense of hope, happiness and healing as a result of trusting me with their time and the issues they are seeking guidance for.  It is a responsibility I take very seriously.
