"Denise has been my therapist now for about 5 years. She has helped me work through all of my trauma and come out on the other side mentally stronger. If it weren’t for her, I would still be in the same terrible mental state I was in 5 years ago. She is the best!"

"Denise is a great listener and doesn't pass judgement. She never gave up on me even when I didn't listen. She understood my needs and the experience with her was life changing. If you are looking for someone to talk to, listen, or most of all better yourself, look no more. She is the best and I highly recommend her."
