About Me

My name is Renee Kochera. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Connecticut. For nearly 12 years, I have helped families couples and children resolve issues and improve themselves. Specifically, my expertise includes working with adults, couples, families and children that are experiencing a variety of mental health challenges. The specialized training that I have received uniquely enables me to help enrich you and your family.

Where I Can Help

Parenting Trouble

Helping parents understand how to better communicate with their children, and to explore why children act out or are having other difficulties in life is something that I can aid with.

Family Problems

Do you find family life to be chaotic? Are arguments at the dinner table regular? I can help your family work through issues that might be creating problems and walk with everyone toward peace.

Women’s Issues

Some issues are specific to women. Trauma, depression and other conditions can manifest differently than in men. We can explore options and address concerns that are gender specific.


Sometimes, life can divide two parents. Unfortunately, this can add a level of complexity to parenting. But it doesn’t have to be difficult and I can help families achieve a healthy balance and dynamic with their children.

If you have one of these issues, or an issue you would like to discuss that might not be listed here, please make an appointment with me so that we can discuss if therapy would be a good fit for you, your child or entire family.
