Denise works with clients aged 13 +, as well as families and couples. 

Life is beautiful and messy. Recovery is not linear. And healing takes more than just time. It is our experiences from birth to the present that have shaped us to be who we are. Therapy can help peel back those layers of experiences and allow us to better understand how our experiences affected us and learn how to move beyond the past and reshape our future. Or life is thrusting you into a new transition and you just need to get grounded. You have lost a loved one and do not know how to get from day to day because the pain is so severe.  

As your therapist, I will provide a safe place for you to process, and I will teach you skill sets and provide you with tools to use outside of the office so you can achieve your goals and better manage your health, circumstances, and everyday life events. Most importantly, you will drive your treatment plan goals because you are the expert of your life!
