Hello! I’m Dennise and I LOVE therapy newbies. It’s because working with individuals reaching out for help for the first time is my absolute specialty.
I know exactly how you might be feeling (very vulnerable, very nervous, and very scared) and how brave you are but just don’t know you are just yet. Brave and strong, for sticking out your feelings and then deciding to create lasting change in her life.
But, whether it’s your first session or your fifteenth, I can help you unpack the hurt or hard feelings you’ve been holding onto for probably way to long, find confidence to speak your mind in all of your relationships, and cope with the thoughts that are holding you back from living the life you know you were meant to live.
I understand the pain and negative impact that symptoms of depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, and trauma can create. I am passionate about the work that I do with my clients to assist them in exploring their past experiences and move towards greater feelings of relief and a renewed sense of hope for their future.
Especially passionate about working with clients experiencing:
- Relationship issues
- Self Esteem
- Intimacy issues
I am fluent in Spanish and offer bilingual service because it is important for me to create a space that allows my clients to feel comfortable, relaxed, and understood.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and earned my master’s degree in Social Work from Aurora University. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which means we’ll explore the thoughts creating your feelings and how they impact the choices you make. Because when we can change how we think about things, we can then change how we feel and ultimately enjoy more in our lives and experiences.
If we change how we think about life, we can change how we feel and ultimately enjoy more in our lives and experiences.
