Congratulations on your initiative to reach out and take care of yourself! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor from Louisiana with 7+ years of experience and I love what I do! Helping others improve their quality of life, find more happiness, and peacefulness is a very rewarding experience.
I have an informal and warm yet assertive counseling style. My clients usually say they feel like they’re talking to family or an old friend, but also someone who can get real and gently get to the core of their issues. My goal is to give you insights about what you’re struggling with and offer practical tips on how to resolve the issue or at least make it better.
As we work with Cognitive Therapy, we look at how your patterns of thoughts and beliefs about a situation or a problem lead you to certain emotional responses, which determine your actions or reactions. With that in mind, when you have a different understanding about a situation, or see a different perspective, or identify an incoherent or contradictory thought and adjust it, that changes the way you feel about someone or a situation. You can also learn coping skills that will help you better deal with challenging situations.
Intriguingly, beyond the surface of what you're "aware" that you're thinking and feeling, you can get many useful insights about your limiting beliefs and feelings on a deeper level, meaning your subconscious. Once you bring a subconscious issue or a repressed belief or emotion to your awareness, and then resolve it, you transform from the inside out. And that's the beautiful journey that we're all here to experience.
If you 're noticing that you want to be a certain way, but your actions contradict you; or you want to change something about yourself, or feel a certain way about yourself, but you can't, even if you try, that means there's something in your subconscious that is preventing it. Whatever it is, I can help you through it, in a safe environment, and without judgement. I will support you, empower you, I can cry with you sometimes, but laugh a lot with you as well! It's so worth it!
I'm looking forward to hearing from you! Let's get started! :)

Love love Denise!
Out of all the years of therapy I've had, Denise is by far the best therapist I've ever had! She is compassionate, understanding and very knowledgeable. Strongly recommend.
No complaints. I feel that my treatment is easy to access and effective.
Denise is incredibly warm and insightful.
Extremely helpful! A great counselor.
She’s very thoughtful, empathetic and insightful. Very much appreciate her breadth and depth of knowledge.
I can highly recommend her as a counselor.
I adore her.
Denise is very professional, honest, compassionate and smart. She will be real with you no matter what and only has your best interest at heart. Denise not only listened to my issues but gave me solid steps to fix them. I appreciate her very much and would strongly recommend her to anyone
I look forward to meeting with Denise. I often enter sessions feeling all over the place. She encourages me to take things one step at a time, and we set goals. My anxiety has been significantly more manageable, I don’t feel down and depressed as often, and I love applying the skills we discuss during sessions. It is a very safe space and Denise makes it easy to be vulnerable!
Denise was very understanding and helpful!
I was very hesitant about pursuing therapy, but then I signed up for Better Help and was paired with Denise. My first video session with her came at a particularly stressful time in my life with a lot of changes going on. She made me feel so comfortable and welcome and safe. In between sessions I will message her with updates of things I want to discuss further over video chat, and she always replies in a timely manner with understanding, support, and advice. I am so glad I finally took the leap with therapy, and I think most of my progress so far is very much thanks to Denise and her guidance.
Working with Denise has been really great for me. This is my first time doing any therapy and it has a very positive experience. I am able to take many of the conversations we have and walk away with a practical way to handle something in my life moving forward. I look forward to our sessions!
Denise is wonderful. She is wise, encouraging, caring, understanding and an excellent counselor. I’d highly recommend her to anyone. I’m so grateful to have been matched with her.
Denise is very gifted in her role, she provides honest insights, direction and encouragement.
Denise is an amazing counselor. She makes our sessions very comfortable and she is very easy to talk to. I always feel heard and understood. She gives helpful suggestions on coping with stress at both work and in relationships. I’ve been able to focus on being a better, happier, and more fulfilled person in just a few months. She uncovered the root cause of my morning panic attacks and gave me some simple tasks to help prevent triggering them. I haven’t had one in several weeks!
It’s like talking to a friend with Denise- a very wise and objective friend. She helped me work through some things by changing my mindset on them. I would 10/10 recommend her :)
Denise is a great listener. She makes you feel welcome and that you’re in a safe, judgment-free space. She helped me to view my issues from a different perspective and how to take control of any negative thoughts and feelings. I feel joyful and peaceful. I am extremely grateful for her help.
I'm so grateful we crossed path! I love her knowledge, but most importantly her delivery. Her message feels so personalize not scripted and genuine concern for my well being. Im so happy this service is available from the comforts of home. If I need service again, I will def request her!
I am actively seeing a change in myself week to week. I'm so happy I took the step to better my mental health. I’m learning to love myself.
Denise is kind and understanding. I normally don’t feel like I have much to talk about in therapy sessions but with her it’s like talking to an old friend and it just flows. She’s been very helpful.
