About Me

I have been working in the mental health field for the last 27 years in which I have experience in several different genres of clientele. I have worked in both inpatient care and outpatient services. These services have included family systems, individual and family counseling, domestic violence, chemical addiction-gambling addictions, and severe mental health needs. Currently, I am serving in a correctional setting with incarcerated offenders with a specialized program for Juveniles Convicted as Adults Program assisting the offender to transfer from a correctional setting after serving at least 25 years of their sentence.
To assist those to understand my clinical approach to counseling, I take a client-centered, solution-focused approached to counseling. By using both cognitive-behavioral and logotherapy techniques, I assist those who chose to engage in therapy to understand the drivers to their behaviors and addressing purpose and meaning in their lives.
To understand Logotherapy, it is a school of psychology and a philosophy based on the idea that we are strongly motivated to live purposefully and meaningfully, and that we find meaning in life as a result of responding authentically and humanely (i.e. meaningfully) to life's challenges. By using Logotherapy and understanding our belief systems we can better understand how we can make changes to our thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Dennis Siefker is a great therapist & counselor.
He’s easy to talk to, makes necessary points that make sense in understanding . He makes it easy for me to get clarity & realize my feelings. This helps me to recognize a strategy for healing.

Dr. Siefker has been very helpful and I’ve only had a couple sessions so far. He is kind, listens well, and helps me to see where I need to improve. My husband and I both work with him and have come far already.

Dennis has been an amazing therapist to me! He’s a great listener, very professional, compassionate and has helped tremendously with many of my issues. He has offered me numerous new ways of approaching everyday problems with healthier solutions!

Dennis is a careful listener, and a thought provoking therapist.

My experience with him has been profoundly helpful, and I greatly appreciated his skill in being able to guide me towards truths and angles of perspective I had trouble approaching on my own.

I would say, in my experience, his style of communication is something like an ever deepening spiral of conversation, where if you are open to it, you can be led straight to the heart of the issue at hand.

I would recommend him highly as a therapist.

Dennis takes his time to understand his patients and their needs and will even add time to make sure you are taken care of.
