About Me

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

Counseling 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.

Counseling 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 3:45 AM Pacific/4:45 AM Mountain/5:45 AM Central/6:45 AM Eastern.

My final appointment of the day typically ends by 12:45 PM Pacific/1:45 PM Mountain/2:45 PM Central/3:45 PM Eastern.

I am licensed to provide counseling if you are physically located in California, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Indiana, Ohio, or Pennsylvania.

Dennis is a fantastic therapist. I feel that he fully understands me and I feel very heard, respected and helped with him. He knows that I am looking to make impactful steps for bettering myself and gives me the tools I need to make those changes. I am so grateful for him because he helped me at a time where I was at my lowest and we have worked together to build myself back up. Thank you Dennis

Dennis is the best!!! I feel a lot better after 3 sessions. He listens and gives excellent advice. I wouldn't go to any other therapist. Thanks for all your help Dennis!

Before my first session, I was initially sceptical of therapy and its merits. However, after working with Dennis, I felt significantly better and made consistent progress during my sessions. I would highly recommend Dennis as a therapist. His friendly and relaxed style has been crucial in creating a good relationship.

Dennis is the best therapist i’ve had so far. From our first session he was able to adapt to my needs to make sure that I felt comfortable. He actively listens and asks good questions which made me realize alot of things and made it easier to work on those things later on. I definitely recommend Dennis Forfa to anyone who needs therapy, especially if you’re dealing with stress, anxiety or depression.

Work with me!
