About me

When you feel like you’re just spinning your wheels, therapy can help you gain the traction you need to get your life moving forward again.

Therapy can help you learn how to stop struggling with such difficulties as worry, unhappiness, self-doubt, lack of motivation, loneliness, homesickness, or the pain of loss.

Therapy can help you get unstuck from repeated struggles with yourself and difficulties with others.

In our meetings, you and I will work together to identify the roadblocks that keep holding you back. I will assist you in creating permanent strategies to get past those roadblocks and start living the life you want to live.

I am available for live sessions (video or phone) from early morning through afternoon on weekdays.

Early risers, take note! Depending on the day, I may have morning appointments available as early as 5:00 AM Pacific/6:00 AM Mountain/7:00 AM Central/8:00 AM Eastern (and sometimes even earlier).

I am licensed to provide therapy when you are physically located in California, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, or Vermont.

The best! Kind, smart, funny. Very helpful when I’m in anxiety state! I’ve been with him probably a year or more. No regrets. I’m navigating relationships.

Dennis approaches therapy with an empathetic, yet straight forward approach. Both of which are essential to therapy, yet hard to find. Dennis is one of a kind.

Dennis is the best therapist I’ve had. He offers me such relief when it comes to stressful and hard times and thoughts. I have bi-polar and ADHD, working with someone that understands my communication style and talks in a way I understand is so helpful. It’s nice to have someone that listens but also gives you a new way to look at things and better tools to handle situations. I’m very thankful.

Dennis is amazing therapist!
He is professional, has a calm positive manner, amazing listening skills and gives great advices. I started working with him regarding my anxiety and he teach me so many skills and ways to deal with this problem and helped me a lot. Later on i started dealing with serious life challenges and family problems and he was there all the way through with great advices, new perspectives and excellent guidance. He is positive and fully focused on every word in every session and text with deep understanding and conversations that will change your life for better.
It's a true blessing to have a therapist like Dennis!
Thank you Dennis i appreciate you a lot!
