RENEE CHILLCOTT, LMHC
- Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Renee Chillcott is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor that has been practicing Neurofeedback training since 2005. Renee attended The University of Central Florida where she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology in 1995. She then went on to complete her Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling with Nova Southeastern University in 2001. She has been a mental health counselor in a variety of settings including Outpatient Treatment Agencies, Alternative Education Settings, and Private Practice. Renee received her license in Mental Health Counseling in 2004.
Neurofeedback was not a new concept for Renee. While working on her undergraduate degree, she worked for a Neuropsychologist in the Orlando area. She learned the basic concepts of Neurofeedback as the office was limited to treating attention/focus disorders in children. What impressed her the most, however, was the effectiveness of change that the parents were enjoying and the fact that these results were occurring without medication intervention. Although she was not in a place of her career to be able to initiate Neurofeedback into a practice setting, she never forgot the possibility of effectively treating mental health issues naturally. As she worked for agencies alongside Psychiatrists Neurofeedback was always in the back of her mind and after becoming licensed, she attended a Neurofeedback training course in Orlando through EEGSpectrum.
Immediately after attending the training, Renee opened a private practice clinic in Orlando, Florida in 2005 offering Neurofeedback and Counseling services. She founded the Chillcott Counseling Center and sub-contracted with the Center for Health, Learning, and Achievement. In 2009 Renee relocated to the South Florida area where she grew up. She joined the team at The Center for Brain Training located in Jupiter, Florida and opened their second location in Delray Beach. In 2010, the Delray Beach practice was moved to Boca Raton in the current location. March of 2015, Renee took ownership of the practice and changed the name to The Brain and Wellness Center. Renee always had the vision of a multidisciplinary practice where clients and families could have access to multiple services promoting coordination of care. Therefore, in the summer of 2015, the office underwent an expansion and additional practitioners were added. In addition to constant continuing education, in 2020, Renee became certified in SSP (Safe and Sound Protocol through Integrated Listening Systems) and Nutrition and Integrative Medicine for Mental Health Practitioners (CMHIMP).
Renee decided to enter the field of Neurofeedback because there was very little information made available to people/parents about alternatives to medication. Through the use of Neurofeedback she saw more significant and permanent changes in not only her clients, but also her own family and herself. This inspired her to become the educated and caring Neurofeedback practitioner she is today. At The Brain and Wellness Center, adults, teens, children and families enjoy a variety of services from multiple providers. Neurofeedback, Brain Mapping, Nutritional Counseling, Learning Programs, EMDR, and a variety of counseling styles are among a few of the services offered.

Tina Landeen, LCSW
- Licensed Clinical Social Worker
The words of a therapist I worked with when I was younger often come back to me. He said:
“Once you walk this path of healing for yourself, you’ll be able to reach back and guide others on the path.”
That version of me felt like that was asking a lot. I was stuck, blowing up relationships that I put everything into, forcing outcomes only to have them crumble around me. I was lost in the jungles of my own perceptions and I was grieving the path that I thought I needed to feel fulfilled. I was scared, very, very stubborn, and out of ideas. I decided to trust, to allow the process to unfold and it turns out, that man was right.
Self-discovery is a lifelong process but repeating dysfunctional patterns and self-sabotaging behaviors doesn’t have to be. Therapy gives you the self-knowledge that you can use to make authentic decisions for yourself that are in alignment with who you really are and what you want out of life
My work is to hold up a mirror, to show you things from different perspectives. Your work is to be open, patient, and loving with yourself through the process. It’s a brave thing to look at yourself honestly and change old patterns.
I really enjoy being a guide in your therapy process.
I am well known for two things in my office, I don’t wear shoes in the office, I wear socks, and a sign I have in my office that says Lila Hum, which means Life is Play…which is my life philosophy, to enjoy the time we have here to play.

Staci Morey, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, passionate learner, trauma-specialist, mom, and friend.
Originally from San Diego, I moved to South Florida in 2008 to be closer to family! I graduated from FAU with a Master’s in Clinical Social Work. Helping people overcome their challenges and become more authentic to themselves is incredibly rewarding.
I have expertise working with trauma, depression, anxiety, family issues, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, among other things. It’s a true gift to get to help people process, learn, and grow.
After becoming pregnant with my daughter, I became motivated to study perinatal mental health. There is not enough education and support out there for new mothers; it’s a wonderful, overwhelming, formative time! I specialize in helping people who are moving through the journey to parenthood (or are already parents) helping them find happiness, heal, and thrive as the caregivers they want to be!
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, making up ridiculous songs to sing to my daughter, listening to podcasts and thinking about where I’d like my next adventure to be!

Kristan Torres, LMHC
Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Qualified Supervisor, MHC
I have been a therapist for over 12 years. My passion is helping people to find truth, healing from heavy burdens and pain, and ultimately the freedom to live out genuine, purposeful lives. I am a Christian Counselor, and a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors. I founded Hope Christian Counseling in 2010. I believe God meets us in the therapy room, directing our work and doing the healing; after all, He is our Healer (Jeremiah 17:14). I want to encourage you in your relationship with the Lord, wherever you’re at.
Over my career, I have worked with many clients with different issues including depression, anxiety, dysfunctional relationships, trauma, grief, self-worth, spiritual issues/growth and more. Over the last several years, my focus has become working with clients who have experienced some sort of trauma(s); whether it’s smaller or larger traumas. What’s important is the effect the trauma had on you personally.
I am an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) trained therapist. EMDR is a unique approach to therapy which utilizes a specific protocol to activate the right and left sides of the brain to process traumas that tend to get stuck in the right side of the brain; leaving a person reliving what happened without much relief. EMDR is very effective at allowing a person’s brain to heal and move forward from trauma. After completing EMDR therapy, the traumatic memory is able to be in the past, and the person doesn’t have to re-experience the trauma any longer. I have been amazed by the results from using EMDR therapy with my clients, where they have experienced breakthrough and relief from the effects of their past traumas.
My approach is genuine and down-to-earth. I meet you where you are in your journey with empathy and compassion, recognizing that it’s your journey and you have to make the decisions that are best for you. However, I will challenge you when it’s clear you are making choices inconsistent with your chosen values; choices that may be harmful to you (or others), or choices that are keeping you from growing and healing.
Therapy is an investment you make in yourself, and to some degree, to the lives of others around you. Because as you change, you will inevitably be different with others. Your healing can affect generations to come. Think about that.
I’m here to work with you when you’re ready. Let us approach God’s throne of grace together (Hebrews 4:16).

Individuals seek therapy for several reasons; sometimes individuals are in a crisis and need a safe and non-judgmental space where they can heal from emotional hurt. At other times, it could simply be to find a space to develop, to grow and challenge oneself to achieve a sense of well-being.
I work best with individuals seeking a safe, empathetic, nurturing and collaborative therapeutic relationship. I have experience in a variety of clinical modalities, that include individual, family, adult and elder care consultations, as well as numerous therapeutic groups. My clinical approach is integrative and eclectic. I am a board certified PTSD counselor as well as an EMDR, Mindfulness and Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease trained therapist.
My areas of expertise include working with clients dealing with depression/anxiety, prolonged grief, relational issues and trauma. I also specialize in Dementia related disorders, working with both caregivers, and the patients. I am passionate about instilling quality of life and securing wellness, growth and development to all my clients.
Additionally, I am a published author of a children’s book. The topic of the book is Alzheimer’s Disease and how families can learn coping strategies to alleviate stress within the family dynamic.
