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.

Written on Jan 20, 2024 after therapy with Dennis for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and coping with life changes

He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful provides only talk therapy, but examples of what we’re discussing work sheets everything he would need to get better.

Written on Aug 24, 2023 after therapy with Dennis for 1 year and 11 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, and coping with life changes

Dennis is great. He listens and offers ways to connect my habits and thoughts to my issues. Even when I brought up he was focusing on an issue I believe was minor, he was able to take a step back and start looking into my concern versus what we were originally talking about.

Written on Jun 09, 2023 after therapy with Dennis for 5 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

He is fantastic so far. He’s the best therapist I’ve ever had because he brings actual frameworks into our conversations in an Illuminating way and finds tactical methods for me (vs only trying to find the source but not having solutions)

Written on May 03, 2023 after therapy with Dennis for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, and coping with life changes

Dennis and my sessions with him have played such an important role in where I am now and where I want to be headed. He’s funny, sincere, professional, committed, and encouraging. He consistently provides new views and concepts that, though foreign to me, have been genuine “ahhaaaa” moments that have helped me facilitate a better understanding about myself and my family.
Without hesitation, I would (and do) recommend Dennis and BetterHelp often.

I feel respected, secure, and understood,
