About Renew Psychotherapy

Renew Psychotherapy was founded in 2007 by Charise Casiano Medeiros, MS. Having worked in various agencies and organizations, Charise Casiano found that the field of psychotherapy continued to lack in fostering serenity within their clients.

In the midst of everyday life, we encounter many people and situations that contribute to our difficulties in maintaining a positive sense of our self. Our lives and relationships have become chaotic and we, in turn, have lost our balance.

Thus, Renew Psychotherapy focuses on better enabling a more peaceful way of life. Through developing positive and constructive tools, you will build confidence in yourself and your relationships. Renew will provide you a safe environment for you to discover your core sense of self and maintain a renewed way of living.

If we can all maintain a positive and accountable stance in our own individual life, can one imagine what effect we may have on society as a whole?

Meet Charise Casiano Medeiros

Charise obtained her BA degree at California State University, Stanislaus and immediately pursued her MS degree at Mount Saint Mary’s College. During her college years, Charise left for one year to do missionary work. She traveled the United States troubleshooting with teenagers. It was from that particular experience that Charise found a love for counseling and began new endeavors working with adolescents. Her career has included working with juvenile delinquents, foster families, special needs children and homeless shelters, in addition to having been a youth minister and a junior high teacher. Charise is a firm believer that one’s development into a person of character, dignity, values, and love begin at home. Thus, Charise looks at the importance of how our families and our environment contribute to our being and what we, in turn reciprocate in our own individual lives as well as our relationships. The focus of therapy is proactive with education and choices – learning to make constructive choices despite where we came from. Charise will provide you direction in your path of life when you are afraid and she will influence hope and courage to make the necessary changes.
