Denise Thornton


About Me

Connection with others and healthy, strong relationships are what the Lord created us for. There are many times in life when journeys are hard, situations exhausting and trying or overwhelming, and my desire is to come alongside and help process and encourage my clients guiding them with the Lord as our center and stabilizer. Counseling for the client can be hard work but can be so rewarding and healing in the process and on the other side of the valley someone might be up against. People dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma of various kinds, relationship struggles and life change are many of who make up my clients. I work with a wide range of ages and journeys.

Christ is our great Physician and Comfort, Counselor and good Shepherd. I want to constantly come back to truth, reminding my client of who God is and incorporating the Bible into our sessions so that as they heal they then have the tool of the Bible and Christ at the center of their process. Prayer is essential in any practice of counseling.

I have been a Christ believer and follower since I was very young, but as I continue to journey on the path of life it is revealed over and over again how laying myself down and allowing the Lord to be the one to change and work in me that is when I am most at peace and effective. It is all about Him, I am just a vessel to help and serve His people.

She is the absolute best!

I don't want Denise to get too busy because I am benefiting a lot from her support. But I don't want to be selfish. So just know, she's good at both empathy and suggestions. :)

Fantastic. Amazing. Compassionate. Understanding. I feel heard, understood, and strong enough to fight the battles in my life with her help

Denise has been very helpful during my time of illness, recovery, and work issues.

Denise is so fun to work with. Walking through heavy burdens with her is actually bearable. She also navigates the conversations well to bring out the truth of matters and some underlying issues. I feel comfortable speaking about things with her, and her homework is usually an activity that does so much good.

She’s great!

Written by C.I. on Jun 17, 2019 after counseling with Denise for 2 weeks

Denise has been great. She knows what questions to ask to get me thinking. She has helped me see things in a healthier perspective and not just out of emotions. I highly recommend Denise.

I was hesitant to try counseling again after a previous negative experience, and am very thankful to have been paired with Denise. She immediately made me feel at ease, welcome, heard and respected. As we have worked through my experiences, she has only made me feel more comfortable with my own story by normalizing my reactions while also giving me tools to ease those reactions in the future. I have already recommended her to a friend.

Denise is a great counselor. I tried out 2 before finding her. She listened and truly cared. She helped me think through my situations and helped me realize how to move forward with my struggles. I'm so thankful for her and all her support.
