My time with Dr. Renee Turner an LPC-Intern was such an amazing journey! I use the word journey rather than experience because I genuinely feel that Dr. Turner walked with me through a journey of finding my voice as a professional. Dr. Turner always provided feedback that helped me grow both personally and professionally. I loved every minute of supervision and will fully endorse Dr. Turner as an extremely ethical, educated, and loving professional.
