Denise Fisher

(MA, NCC, LPC)

About Me

My name is Denise Fisher and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Tennessee and Virginia. I am also certified through the National Board of Certified Counselors. I have over 20 years of experience working with children, teens and adults in community based programs and 12 years experience working in the field of mental health. Counseling individuals and groups, including families and work groups has provided me with the opportunity to encounter a broad range of situations, including depression, anxiety, life changes, relationship issues, coping with grief and loss, trauma and stress.

I believe that, as individuals, resolving life challenges requires a personal approach. Meeting people, where they are, is an essential focus of working through difficulties and through a person-centered and individualized approach, I seek to provide support, guidance and honest feedback. My therapeutic approach is tailored to meet the needs of each individual with a strong focus on relationship and connection.

Reaching out to ask for help can be difficult, but if you are looking for someone to walk alongside you and help find a fresh perspective, I welcome the opportunity of taking that journey with you.

Denise is a wonderful counselor. She’s readily available, and it’s very easy to set up an appointment at a time that works for me. I love that she doesn’t push, and stresses that we are doing things at my pace. She is very knowledgeable, and I feel like she legitimately cares about me. And my healing. At the same time she doesn’t sugar coat anything. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with her.

Denise is wonderfully supportive and when I need help she gives it. Also she is wise and takes careful consideration about what I write and asks excellent questions. I really, really like her and respect her. I think she does her job well. We have really clicked together and she has always been respectful and treated me with dignity and also care. I have liked her so much better than several of my counselors from the past. She is not judgmental yet gently guiding.

I have found Denise to a warm, friendly, and caring person to communicate with and share my concerns. She encourages me to “stay in the game”, at times when I just want to give up. Everyone needs someone who believes in them and someone they can lean on when the going gets tough. I believe Denise has helped me weather through otherwise hopeless situations.
