About Me

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Christian faith, I have experience in crisis intervention, with clients encountering suicidal ideation and self-harming behaviors. I assist clients with mental health challenges, and trauma related issues. I have worked in a variety of settings: mental health/substance abuse agencies, emergency rooms, a battered women's shelter and the judicial system. These experiences have made me a well-rounded clinician

My treatment approaches are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Trauma Focused Therapy. I am currently working in Charlotte with a broad spectrum of clients. My areas of focus include but not limited to: depression, anxiety, Borderline Personality Disorder, trauma, suicidal ideation and domestic violence. I desire to encourage, provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address life challenges and explore painful issues in a safe environment. I integrate therapeutic techniques to offer a personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths, attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing and empower them in their journey toward healing.

Denise Doster has been more than satisfactory in our interactions. She serves as a great sounding board with sound counsel. The worksheets she provides are simple and to the point. Her replies to messaging are timely and offer possible solutions to different life situations. I truly like the ability to text her through the app which allows me time to word my questions and share my opinions in a timely manner. The weekly conversations are valuable without a doubt, but the text is real-time concerns that may be forgotten during the next live session. The advice I get from Denise is valuable life skill tools I am adding to my toolbox to not only improve my life but the lives of others as well.
I was not sure if online counseling would be right for me in the beginning. So far it seems to work as well as the traditional appointments in person. I like the schedule pm sessions it works with my busy schedule perfectly.
Thank you for your service and if all your counselors are like Denise your company will help improve many lives.

She's so sweet and respectful. I have looked at my situation in a different light... she helped me get past things I've been taking with for so long.

Denise is a great Christian counselor! She became a good friend and help with me dealing with anxiety and panic attacks. It was just great having someone to talk to that could understand what I was dealing with and encouraged me, and gave me tools to handle them.
