I received a PsyD in clinical psychology from Trinity College of Graduate Studies in 2004. I am licensed as a Clinical Psychologist is the state of California. My experience includes working in a range of experiences from working in a state mental hospital to spending 3 years as a school psychologist in a Catholic high school. I also interned in a counseling clinic and worked in a program that helps youths with drug problems. I have also lead 12 step type recovery and marriage recovery support groups in a church setting. I work with adolescents, individuals and couples. My experience includes issues relating to grief and loss, depression, anxiety, adjustment to life changes, anger management, familial conflict and marriage counseling.
My treatment approach uses Rational Living Therapy. It relies on developing a good relationship with my clients first. It is a form of cognitive therapy that is intended to be shorter term and produce long-term results. It uses the Socratic Method to uncover underlying beliefs. The goal is to teach clients how to help themselves. It is based on an educational model that teaches clients to see and change their cognitive distortions; and the thoughts that are causing them to have negative reactions to situations in their lives and learning how to change their thinking so that these events are no longer problematic.

I appreciate Dr. Denn’s patience & approach to therapy. His advice has helped me. I look forward to my sessions with him.
Dr Denn listens and understands my concerns and provides me method to address them.
Dr. Denn is so patient and easy to talk to during our chats. He has a way of getting his point across without making you feel ashamed or anything of the sort. I have a tendency to recluse, and he is great at checking in on me every once in a while to see how I'm doing. I am comfortable sharing thoughts and feelings with him. It feels as though I'm talking to a wise next door neighbor almost.
Although it has been a while since we spoke, I appreciate all Mike's support.
He is very professional, very attentive, knowledgeable and poise.
A great knowledgeable listener.

With your pearls of wisdom I corrected my course toward a more healthy direction. I appreciate this app providing the user (me) with such a well qualified professional.
I enjoy tremendously talking to doctor Denn because I think he understands what I'm going through and I feel just the support of knowing that I can talk to him about the subjects that we talked about and it wasn't as hectic because there was a little laughter there because he understood what I was going through instead of crying about it we could laugh about it my husband won't participate but it gave me a piece of mind and I participated.
Dr. Denn was professional, polite and efficient.
His guidance helped me move forward and have the confidence to try and establish new relationships, in spite of my past experiences.
