About me

Hello! Thank you for visiting my page.

My name is Denise and I have worked in the mental health field for almost ten years.

I have experience working with adults, adolescents, and children, and have worked with a wide variety of challenges, including depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma, and other life difficulties.

I am especially interested in working with adolescents, but I am excited to have the opportunity to work with adults as well. Most of the clients in my in-person practice are adults. I am particularly interested in doing message-based and live chat counseling.

My counseling style is a combination of psychodynamic approaches (talking about emotions and working through difficult experiences using traditional "talk therapy" type techniques) and cognitive-behavioral approaches (looking at the relationship between emotions, behaviors, and thoughts, and how influencing one can make us feel better or worse emotionally). I use more of one or the other depending on the person's preference.

Much research has shown that one of the most important factors in how much a person benefits from counseling is the quality of the relationship between the person and the counselor. So I am glad that you took the time to read my profile and invite you to message me if you have any questions. If you feel like we may be a good fit for each other, I look forward to working with you!

The best decision I made. She understand you and help you understand when you explain something that doesnt make sense to you she will interpret it for my better understanding. And thats the most I love about it and her. She is a huge help.
