Denise believes that communication matters, including how we communicate with others and how we communicate with and to ourselves. She seeks to help patients establish healthy communication skills to promote healthy relationships with the self and others, as well as healthy boundaries. Denise has an eclectic therapy style, but connects with Narrative Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy modalities, as well as psychodynamic psychotherapy, focused on the development of insight as a catalyst for change.
