About me

Hi there! I am an Illinois licensed therapist with over 20 years of experience in counseling, art therapy, substance abuse counseling, health and wellness coaching, and clinical supervision. I have had the privilege of working with a diverse client base, including both teens and adults, and addressing a range of issues such as mood disorders, addictions, anger management, life transitions, relationship building, communication, and motivation. Additionally, I have helped individuals heal from trauma, abuse, grief, and loss.

My approach to therapy is a combined one, tailored to each individual. I use client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, insight practices, solution-focused, strengths-based, and Motivational Interviewing techniques. I believe in the power of authentic relationships, rooted in respect and being fully present with my clients. My ultimate goal is to help individuals identify and truly understand their innate abilities and personal power to achieve their goals and succeed.

As a therapist, I strive to be patient, empathetic, and always willing to listen. I understand that life can be overwhelming at times, and that's why I'm here to support you through the process of meaningful change. If you're ready to start your journey toward personal growth and healing, I look forward to working with you!

My therapist was extremely diligent in listening to everything that was wrong and helping me to realize the true root cause of what was wrong. New perspectives were always brought to light and honestly I never would’ve noticed them without her!

I highly remind Denise! When I came to her I was having a lot of trouble, and really needed someone to listen and give feedback. Denise let me talk my head off, and within the very short times I gave her to respond always did a great job helping me make new realization about myself. She’s the best!

I was apprehensive about therapy at first. Had some negative experiences elsewhere in the past, but I knew I needed to talk to someone. Buckled down, and got matched with Denise. She's a really great therapist. She listens, she's on the ball with asking questions and letting you just talk and guide the process. She's great!
