Hi there! My name is Denise, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor. In the past, I have worked in Outpatient mental health and drug/alcohol facilities, a prison setting, and intensive family therapy in-home settings. Since I have worked with individuals from diverse backgrounds, I’ve gained ample experience working with ages that range between 9-65 years old. Problematic areas that I have assisted clients in are the following: PTSD, anxiety, depression, substance use, anger, grief and loss, mood disorders, and many more. Currently, I am trained in Mindfulness Meditation and CBT therapy. By September, I will be trained fully in EMDR which treats PTSD, anxiety, panic and depression. Some things I like to do in my free time are travelling, skiing, kayaking, and spending time with the people I love most.
For parents who are hoping to bring their teen to counseling, these tips may help prepare your child.
