See what past clients have to say about working with Denise.
Before working with Denise we were not able to communicate effectively. We were so focused on what the other partner was doing wrong that we struggled to see our own negative behaviors and to see the positive behaviors of the other partner. We constantly argued in a non-productive manner.
After working with Denise we are now able to focus more on the other partner’s positive traits and behaviors and to better see our own negative behaviors that negatively impact the relationship.
My wife is able to communicate her complaints and concerns to me in a manner that is non-contemptuous, which allows me to better listen and respond without defensiveness or anger. We are able to speak freely together and enjoy our time together consistently.
Denise did an amazing job at helping us to reflect back on ourselves and focus on the bigger picture regarding negative behaviors in the relationship, instead of getting bogged down in specific, trivial, day-to-day disagreements.
We met Denise when searching for a “therapist” to assist us with issues in our marriage. I was hurt, angry, confused, unsure, anxious and afraid. I thought I was on the verge of divorce. Could we overcome these issues? Could I overcome these issues?
Today, together and separately we have grown individually and in our marriage as a result of our time spent with Denise. One of the BEST things that I learned was I really had the power to take charge of my thinking and more importantly my reactions. Communication is much easier now. Less confrontational, more sharing of thoughts, feelings, ideas and solutions. I have learned I am stronger than I thought.. I’ve learned so much about myself and how I communicate.
Our marriage is stronger, healthier, imperfect and a work in progress. Working with Denise likely saved our relationship.
Both my husband and I are grateful and so happy we invested in us . We have each referred Denise to clients and friends.
“My Marriage is going to end”
Those were the words my client said to me when we first started working together.After just 3 months, during their final session, she was brought to tears because her and her husband were closer than ever.
Sent in an email from a client:
As of yesterday we are living together again and happy. We probably wouldn’t have made it to this place without your help. Thank you for all you did for us.
Client text message: We would not be together now if we didn’t come to see you.
Before working with Denise we were more or less doing life together but not connected. We struggled to communicate effectively and work together on most home situations. If we disagreed it turned into frustration, resentment, and disconnectedness instead of being able to work together.
It was impacting our home life, parenting, intimacy, and connectedness. Since working with Denise we have a vastly different way of communicating with each other now. We’re both trying harder to see things from each others perspective and understanding our communication styles better.
We are still challenged with issues from time to time but the impact of a disagreement is very minimal now as opposed to prior to counseling.
The most significant improvements in our relationship is better communication. We are working together more on getting things done around the house. We have made time more consistently to spend time one on one and strengthen our bond as a couple.
Before working with Denise I was really unhappy with my marriage. We argued about the same things. I felt unappreciated and frustrated.
Divorce was definitely an option I was considering. Working with Denise has changed my life. I was hesitant at first because I didn’t completely believe that doing this work alone would change my marriage. But it did. And I’m so glad I did this work.
After working with Denise for 2 months….I am falling back in love with my husband. We are working as a team, communicating better and having more sex!
