About Me

Hello,
I am a passionate and well qualified Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor. I earned a Master of Art in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in 2012. I have over 13 years of experience working with adults and children who have been abused or neglected and that have various substance abuse and mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, grief and ADHD.

I like to adapt sessions to assist clients in identifying stressors, identify motivations, build support systems, and increase functioning. I am an excellent communicator and client advocate, experienced at working with diverse age groups and socio-economic populations.

The counseling experiences are one that will require trust commitment and requires participation from all parties involved. My goal is to establish a therapeutic relationship with each client while striving to be honest and maintain professionalism at all times. I will be utilizing techniques from an eclectic approach to counseling, primarily focusing on Family Systems, Person Centeredness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Techniques will include journaling, and active listening. Homework assignments will be given as appropriate and relaxation exercises may be presented to encourage problem solving and coping skills. I believe in empowering individuals to overcome personal obstacles that may be keeping them from reaching their goals in life.

I hope to hear from you soon,

Warmly,

Denotra

I’ve told you she is professional, caring, wise and guides me towards my goals, notices my achievements and growth. She’s upfront in a way that shows grace. She is a fine therapist and I would recommend her to anyone. She is thorough, a great listener and really knows what she is doing . I heed her advice which is why I’m growing into the woman I want to be. She goes above and beyond.

Denotra is the best and has been such a perfect fit for me! She makes me feel so comfortable while also pushing me to set goals and uncover different parts of my life. I have met so many goals that I had at the beginning of therapy thanks to her help. I highly recommend!

Denotra is a kind, compassionate listener who expertly reframes my thoughts to promote growth & understanding. She is great at teasing out the root of issues and helping me understand & visualize my psyche thru poetic metaphors and references. I always feel seen when talking to her. I highly recommend Denotra to anyone that needs help with self-love and processing trauma. :-)

Denotra has made something I've been very hesitant about doing to something I am getting more comfortable with by the session. She answers promptly every time I need her, with insightful feedback and questions. I also enjoy the exercise that she sends over the message board. I look forward to continue to work with her.
