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 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.
Denise is a kind, caring, and wise counselor.
