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 with 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.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Family conflicts
- Trauma and abuse
- Coping with life changes
I also have experience in Relationship issues, Grief, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Coaching, Compassion fatigue

I would be lost without Denise. She is very prompt in responding and checks in with me regularly. She understands where I am coming from and asks very insightful questions that have opened my eyes to parts of myself I had never considered. I feel completely safe sharing even the most personal details with her.
Denise is incredibly understanding, helpful, and supportive. No matter how I’ve felt about myself or my decisions, I have never felt judged or pressured into anything after speaking with her. I appreciate the advice, worksheets, and exercises that she uses to help me organize my thoughts and emotions.
Denise is very supportive! She has been there with me through my life changes and has always had my best interest at heart. Together we have worked through several of my fears and insecurities, and I feel like have made progress towards becoming a better version of myself because of her help.
Denise is very helpful and personable. She listens to my issues and has good, concrete suggestions for me to implement or try.
Denise is understanding of my situation. When she doesn't hear from me, she'll contact me. There's LOTS more good stuff I could say about Denise, but I'm in a bad place right now and can't sit down and write Denise the glowing review she deserves. This is my fault as I got caught up with other stuff and didn't respond to Denise, even though she attempted to contact me to see if I was okay. Denise is here so I don't have to go it alone, and I need to stay in better contact with her. Thank you, Denise!
She gives great advice. Pays attention to what I’m saying. Understands and supports me on all topics. Points out things that I could change to make it easier. Very helpful.
Denise is always responsive and even prompts me when she hasn't heard from me for a long time. This makes me reflect back on how I have been so it is really good to having her checking in from time to time. Thanks to all her time with me I feel a lot better.
She has a lot of experience, and is extremely easy to talk to. It’s very easy to get a selection of days and times for appointments. Highly recommended.
Great listener that provides practical advice and communicates efficiently.
Denise has been an amazing counselor and has met all my needs and more. I am a college student and I do not have the best most consistent schedule that can be frustrating to many, but Denise is so patient and flexible with my schedule because she realizes how important it is for me to talk and express my feelings! I would recommend her to anyone. She has taught me to be more introspective and self-aware of my needs.
Denise has helped me overcome so much and I have grown and become a much better version of myself since I started talking to her. I have learned how to cope with and process events in a way that has positively affected my relationships and daily life.

She helps me understand myself.
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.
Denise has been super. She is very grounded and realistic in her thinking and support. I value her input and try to apply her suggestions to my day-to-day life. Her advice and support has really helped. Thanks.
