About Dennise

An essential part of what I have to offer in helping others began with trauma in childhood.  Living with emotional pain powerfully motivated me to find my way out of suffering and into the fresh air of healing that brings peace, confidence, and the ability to love.  I felt deep within my heart that if I could find my way, then I could help others to do the same.  So with that vision, hope and determination, I became a psychotherapist and have been in private practice for over 35 years.  I have assisted individuals, couples, families and groups.

What I have cultivated over the years that will help to bring healing and recovery into your work is:  1) An extensive array of great trainings and up to date techniques, interwoven with my own heart-based innovative approaches.  2) The healing, growth and empathy that emerged from having gone through my own therapy.  3) Sharing the deep learning that has come from Life Experience as a person.  Learning to navigate and heal the emotional/mental challenges within.  As well as, the “outer realities” like relationship, parenthood, divorce, single parenting, remarriage, and all the other practical nuts and bolts of living.  4) It is my joy to help you find the true confidence, empowerment and fulfillment within yourself that I have found to be possible.
