Compassionate Care for Serious Illness
& Hospice Support

Facing a serious illness or hospice care can be an overwhelming journey, but you don’t have to go through it alone. I’m here to provide compassionate support and guidance every step of the way.

As a trusted medical liaison, I can help you decipher complex medical information and assist with coordinating your care. During challenging treatments like chemotherapy or radiation, dealing with acute or chronic illnesses, I offer unwavering support and comfort.

No matter where you are, whether it’s in my office or by your bedside, I’m available to assist you—both within the U.S. and internationally. When you’re dealing with serious illness or making end-of-life decisions, remember that help is just a phone call away.

Let me be your partner on this difficult journey.

I am a registered nurse and had the privilege to work with Denise in critical care for more years than I care to remember. She is gifted with a wonderful intellect as well as an empathetic and compassionate soul.

The other therapist in the room… my 14 year old yellow lab Dugan had just passed away and Max knew that I needed a dog hug… thank you Max and Denise for your help along my journey.

Denise has been helping my daughter for about 5 months now. Almost immediately, Denise made us feel at ease and comfortable. She is always available to assist with any questions and makes us feel that we are her main priority. My daughter looks forward to every session. Denise would be a great help for any of your needs.

Cancellation Policy

Many clients call my office for counseling and several are in crisis. While my schedule is often full, extra time in the evening or on the weekend becomes necessary.

Unfortunately, the day before or the same day of a scheduled appointment, patients cancel or simply do not show up for their scheduled session.

While I realize emergencies, meetings, business and school functions can happen and people do get sick, it becomes very disruptive to the practice.

Therefore, all clients who cancel the day before or the same day of their scheduled appointmnet will be charged $75.00. Payments must be made before another appointment is offered.

Thank you for understanding.
