Brent Dixon of Durango Family Therapy

I believe that most people I work with have some sort of hurt from that past. This hurt could be from family, friends, event, or a personal needs going unmet. My desires are to enable healing in each person I work with and to help them to take charge of their lives.

I am originally from Texas. I went to college at the University of North Texas and received my undergraduate degree in Social Work. I moved to Colorado as fast as I could and attended Denver Seminary for my Masters in Community Counseling. I have been practicing in a variety of settings. I received most of my training working with teens (and their families) who were in and out of jail and in the foster care system. Most of these families struggled with mental illness, significant trauma and/or addictions. I then transitioned into private practice where I have thoroughly enjoyed working with individuals and couples.

I am also EMDR Level 1 Trained.

Renee Dixon of Durango Family Therapy

I enjoy helping to empower families and individuals to overcome past and present struggles in order to live healthy, full, hope filled lives. I believe in the importance of finding the root issues in a persons life in order to find true healing. I offer therapy to help address issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, life transitions, and loss.

I attended Texas A&M University and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I then went on to receive my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington. I spent the first years of my career working with children, teenagers, and families in the child welfare system who had experienced trauma and abuse. I also have several years of experience working with the elderly and people diagnosed with chronic illness and pain.

I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is a therapeutic method for processing trauma. It is a useful and powerful tool for overcoming trauma and false beliefs about oneself. For more information visit the EMDRIA website at EMDR International Association.

I love working as a therapist with clients – from little children to older adults. I am dedicated to helping others suffer less, learn powerful lessons about themselves and the world, and experience joy and fulfillment in their lives. My specialties in counseling and psychotherapy are: neuro-psychology, trauma, attachment and addiction/compulsion, as well as a vast range of mental illness issues. I hold a post-graduate certificate in Children’s Mental Health and specialty training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) – a trauma resolution technique.

My first degree is in Nursing (BSN), with a focus on psychiatric nursing. I also hold Masters’ degrees in Counseling Psychology and School Counseling, and am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). As a psychotherapist, I have worked in addiction recovery centers, therapeutic boarding schools, outpatient clinics, school districts and outdoor/wilderness settings with individuals, couples and families.
