A welcome from Denise: I want to first congratulate you on taking the next steps toward your healing journey! My goal is to create a safe space for you to be able to work toward achieving your mental wellness goals. My approach to counseling is holistic and collaborative. I’ll use evidence-based techniques that are uniquely tailored for you, as we explore the impact of your lived experiences. The areas in which I specialize include trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, and women’s issues.

I have a long-time passion and extensive experience working with adult women who have experienced trauma; helping them to heal from those traumas and improve their feelings of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, low self-worth, and self-acceptance. I have organized a series of seasonal therapeutic writing workshops for women beginning in 2017. Through those workshops, I curated a space for healing through mindfulness, transparency, and writing. During my workshops, we broached topics of healing, relationships, trauma, grief, and love.

It is my belief that healing takes place within a safe and nonjudgmental environment filled with compassion and genuineness. My hope is that if my approach resonates with you, you will be in touch.

Denise will be accepting new clients starting April 3, 2023.
