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 4:45 AM Pacific/5:45 AM Mountain/6:45 AM Central/7:45 AM Eastern.

My final appointment of the day ends at or before 1:45 PM Pacific/2:45 PM Mountain/3:45 PM Central/4:45 PM Eastern.

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

I spoke with several therapists before Dennis, and felt like I was just spinning my wheels and not making any progress. During our very first session, I felt like I was finally getting what I needed out of therapy, and my quality of life has greatly improved thanks to his insight and the tools and practices he’s suggested for me. Other therapists provided cookie-cutter advice and techniques that didn’t feel relevant to my situation. Dennis really listens and makes a great effort to understand what I’m going through, and his feedback feels personalized for specifically what’s going on with me. After far too long feeling hopeless and stuck with my mental health, Dennis’s insight has helped me build a far healthier, happier outlook on life, and every single session helped me build a sense of hope and confidence that I’m moving in the right direction. I’m incredibly grateful for Dennis’s help. I would recommend him to anyone, especially those who feel disillusioned with therapy and insecure about their path moving forward.

Dennis has been a godsend. I was reluctant about therapy. I didn't know what to expect and I was nervous about it. But after a single session with Dennis, not only was I reassured in his ability to help me, I was actually beginning to experience the healing possible through the therapy. He is an excellent listener and offers remarkably poignant counsel. I'm blessed to have him helping me.

Dennis is the man! He and I have great conversations and I always leave the sessions feeling relieved, heard and understood. I talk about Dennis to my friends like they all know him and I often pass along his advice and insight to my friends and family. Getting connected with Dennis was one of the best ideas I had in a long time. Thank you for all you do Dennis, I appreciate you! :)

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!
