Welcome to Inner Renewal Therapy

A place for healing, growth, and support. Imagine it as a personal journey to discover your strengths, navigate life's ups and downs with newfound resilience, all while gaining effective tools for a more balanced and fulfilling life. 


Alina Lamoreaux, LCSW

Ever felt like you need to be "stronger" or "try harder" just to make life a bit easier? You're not alone. Many clients I’ve worked with share these thoughts, thinking that if they were just a little "stronger" or pushed themselves a bit harder, life would fall into place. But here's the thing – it's not about needing more strength. It's about having access to the right tools, the right support, and the right help to truly thrive. And that's where I come in – I'm here to provide you with the tools and support you need to live life the way you want to.

Welcome to Inner Renewal Therapy. I'm Alina Lamoreaux, the founder of Inner Renewal Therapy and a therapist with 15 years of experience dedicated to walking with you on your unique journey. I've had the privilege of supporting individuals of all ages, from children to adolescents and adults.

In our therapeutic journey, I draw from a diverse toolkit of evidenced-based interventions. These include exposure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, play therapy, sand tray therapy, anxiety reduction, stress management, and techniques. My ultimate goal is to help you gain effective coping skills to manage feelings and emotions in a healthy way.

I specialize in treating perinatal issues, obsessive-compulsive disorder, stress & anxiety, trauma, grief & loss, and body image issues & self-esteem challenges. Your struggles may have become a familiar part of your life, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to settle for just getting by. Relief is possible, and you are not alone in this.

My clients often share that they appreciate my warm and approachable nature. In therapy, it’s essential that you feel safe and comfortable opening up, and I’m here to create that space for you. I provide direct feedback and encourage the development of resilience tools that are necessary to overcome the obstacles that may be standing in the way of your progress.

My Specialties

Reproductive and Perinatal Health Challenges

If you're navigating challenges in conceiving, facing pregnancy-related anxiety or depression, or coping with the
emotional impact of reproductive health issues, know this: you're not alone. Inner Renewal Therapy is here to provide compassionate support, guiding you through the highs and lows of this unique journey, including the heartache of pregnancy and infant loss.

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." - Maya Angelou


Trauma varies from person to person and is a subjective experience, encompassing anything that an individual defines as deeply distressing or harmful to their well-being. Natural disasters, childhood scars, relationship trauma, emotional abuse, or sexual trauma - with the use of evidenced based trauma models including prolonged exposure techniques, I'm here to help you begin healing from the
wounds trauma causes.

Trauma creates change you don’t choose. Healing is about creating change you do choose.” – Michelle Rosenthal

Grief & Loss

Navigating the challenging road of grief can often feel like a solitary journey. However, through therapy, you not only find a safe space to express your emotions but also gain a compassionate companion in your grief. My role as your therapist and grief companion is to provide support, understanding, and guidance, helping you navigate the difficult terrain of loss and offering a comforting presence as you work through the complex emotions associated with grief.

"Only there, only when ready, will we be able to blossom (albeit painfully) into a joy that cohabitates with grief — rather than displacing or replacing it." Joanne Cacciatore

Anxiety-related Disorders

If you're grappling with generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, or specific phobias, know that support is within reach. My aim is to
help you develop effective coping skills and enhance your overall well-being.

Obsessive-Compulsive Related Disorders

For those confronting the challenges of obsessive-compulsive related disorders, we understand the weight that intrusive thoughts and compulsions carry.
Together, let's work towards managing their impact on your daily life.

"Having OCD is like being allergic to life - every waking moment is spent in a state of mental hypersensitivity." - Unknown

Body & Self-esteem Issues

Embracing a journey towards a healthier relationship with your body and self-esteem is transformative. If you're grappling with body image concerns and low
self-esteem, remember that you are worthy of love and belonging. I offer a supportive space designed to help you navigate this journey, fostering self-confidence and addressing the psychological factors that may impact your self-esteem.

What to Expect

At Inner Renewal, I understand that taking the first step toward therapy can be a significant decision. I want to ensure that you know exactly what to expect during your journey to renewal and well-being. Just as a dandelion progresses through various stages of growth, so too will your therapeutic experience evolve. Here’s what you can anticipate at each step:



The seed of your therapeutic journey, the consultation is the very first step towards growth and healing. In this free 15-minute chat, we'll discuss your concerns and needs for therapy to ensure that we are the right fit for each other before committing to service.



Once we've established that Inner Renewal is the right choice for you, we'll set an appointment for your first visit and email a link to our paperwork. Please make sure all of the paperwork is filled out before your first appointment.


Initial Visit

Your first counseling visit at Inner Renewal is all about getting to know your story, the problems you have been facing, and the way it has been impacting your daily life. This marks the beginning of our journey together, as we work towards understanding and addressing the roots of your challenges.


Individual Sessions

The closed dandelion represents a natural phase in therapy where individuals often turn within, seeking introspection to provide time and space to heal. It symbolizes the true, hard, but deeply rewarding work. In these sessions, we'll work towards your treatment plan goals, addressing the core of your challenges, and guiding you through the transformation that comes with introspection and hard work. This phase is often the most rewarding, as it's where profound healing and personal growth take place.


Therapy Completion

Just as a dandelion releases its fluffy seeds into the wind, therapy can help you release the negative thoughts, emotions, and patterns that may have held you back. When your treatment plan goals have been met and you're experiencing relief, you may be ready to decrease or stop sessions. Our goal is to empower you to navigate your life with the tools and resilience you've gained. 


Be Like the Dandelion - A Symbol of Growth and Renewal

Your therapeutic journey at Inner Renewal is a partnership, and we are here to guide and support you through each stage. The dandelion’s transformation from a tiny seed to a resilient puffball symbolizes the change and growth you can achieve. We’re committed to helping you tap into your inner resilience, explore new perspectives, and embrace the personal growth and transformation that is possible through therapy.

Why doesn’t constant trampling defeat the dandelion? The key to its strength is its long and sturdy root, which extends deep into the earth. The same principle applies to people. The true victors in life are those who, enduring repeated challenges and setbacks, have sent the roots of their being to such a depth that nothing can shake them.
