My name is Dena and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri. I received my Master’s degree in Counseling from Webster University in 2010. I have direct clinical counseling experience in a healthcare setting. I operated as a lead counselor in an intensive outpatient setting working with children, adolescents and adults providing individual, group, and family therapy. Additionally, I worked in the Intake Department where I gathered information and assessed individuals for the proper level of psychiatric care. In this role I also provided community resources and referrals. I have experience working with a broad range of severity and clinical issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, family issues, comorbidity, and substance abuse.
Working collaboratively with individuals is my priority throughout treatment. I utilize a blend of theoretical approaches and interventions that are goal-oriented, with a strong emphasis on building a supportive therapeutic relationship. In addition, I focus on identifying each individuals’ strengths and coping skills. My approach is one that is supportive and validating. I provide a therapeutic environment that is safe and non-judgmental. It is important to me that my clients feel heard and understood at all times.
I am looking forward to establishing a collaborative and valuable relationship that provides you with the support for positive change.

Dena is amazing and has helped me so much. I’ve learned from her and understand myself better.
Dena is a fantastic listener. She always gives me plenty of space to vent and process all sides of an issue before diving in with suggestions or alterative ways of thinking. When she does provide feedback, it is always respectfully framed in a way that lets me know she is not telling me how to think or feel.
I feel comfortable being my true and vulnerable self in our sessions, because I know she sees and understands me, without judgement.
I highly recommend working with her.
Dena has been a mainstay in my life and keeps me level. I look forward to our sessions and recommend her to everyone I can!
