About me

Hi, I am Denise, a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in Texas for over 27 years and still enjoying it. Over the years, I have gained valuable experience working with a wide range of issues including depression, bipolar, anxiety, grief/loss, addiction/recovery and life changes. I have had the opportunity to work in many different levels of care including, outpatient, crisis intervention, intensive outpatient, partial hospital, hospital, and residential care.

My counseling style is respectful and interactive. My integrated approach includes theory and techniques from client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral and mindfulness. By combining techniques from various approaches, I can develop a plan of treatment to fit your specific needs more effectively.

I appreciate the courage it takes to seek help and strive to work with each client to overcome their challenges, understanding that reaching out for help is the first step on the journey to feeling better. I look forward to working with you.

Denise fully understands all I’ve gone through. She actually listens to everything I say. A keeper

Written on Feb 07, 2022 after therapy with Denise for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and coping with life changes

I had Denise as a counselor for a few months and stopped sessions due to my schedule and we had worked through most of my issues. I loved working with her. More life events happened that I struggled with and I immediately signed back up for sessions with Denise because she has been so supportive and helpful for me.

Denise is a friendly, patient and understanding counselor. She’s able to identify problem areas and come up with solutions to address them. I highly recommend her.

Written on Jul 27, 2021 after therapy with Denise for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Denise helped me through the toughest moment of my life. I’m a person that hasn’t experienced so many inconveniences in life and in a span of 4 months, experienced it all. I went through loss of family members, a loss of a pet, a car accident, personal hardship and feeling extremely anxious and overwhelmed. She is so knowledgeable and helpful. She is an amazing listener and I really appreciate her. She helped me navigate my feelings and help me understand why I was feeling the way I did. I never felt judged! I have tried video and phone call meeting with her and both felt comfortable.
