(LMFT)

About Me

I am a family and marriage counselor licensed in California with over 30 years experience. I worked for 19 years as a therapist and supervisor at a county Children's Mental Health Department. While there I had the opportunity to lead parenting classes, lead support groups, and work with clients to improve communication and stability. The couples and families presented with a range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, adoption issues, attachment issues, abuse and trauma, and ADHD. In addition, I was the therapist for Juvenile Hall.

My counseling style is compassionate and open. I use a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach that is client driven. I know it takes courage to be open and vulnerable in a relationship, and I strive to provide a safe and trusting connection in order to benefit my clients. The road to growth can be challenging and exciting, but it can lead to the life you have envisioned. I am here to support you on that path.

Reviews

Written by T.I. on Aug 31, 2019 after counseling with Denae for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Denae has a strong background in child psychology. We came to her because we're figuring out how to navigate our first year with a newborn together. She understands couples dynamics, personality styles and is very knowledgeable on secure attachment and how to raise a child to feel seen, understood, safe and heard. I Highly recommend this counselor.
