Denise has been fantastic, she listens, she asks the right questions, she helps guide me to the answers. She has been a huge help in my healing.

I don't think I am a very good patient. I "disappear" for weeks at a time. I find it difficult to engage in therapy while everything around me is crazy. Denise does not push me. Instead, she encourages me, and basically says she is there for me when I need her. Just knowing that is a very helpful thing. I have had a few therapists in my time. Denise is by far the best. I can tell she wants the best for me. I can tell she wants me to become the best version of myself that I can be. She wants me to do it at my pace, on my schedule. If I had any other therapist assigned, I would have already quit. That's my MO. But, I don't want to let her down.
