Hello and Welcome…..
Everyone has choices to make in life. Some are harder to make than others. My goal for you is to work together to provide a non-judgmental therapy experience. My name is Denise Mitchell and I have been counseling individuals from age nine to adults for over ten years.
My educational background started at the University of Pittsburgh where I received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education and Counseling. My journey to Maryland encouraged me to take my education a step further. Once I settled in Maryland, I attended Loyola University where I completed the requirements to become a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). I have been providing therapy in this capacity for four years.
I have a wide array of experience working with adults 18+.including couples. My specialty is diverse and include working with individuals and couples who are experiencing marital issues, communication difficulties, boundaries and relationship concerns.
My approach to therapy is to use a variety of modalities such as Person-centered therapy, to assist with guiding you through steps to resolve problems. Reality therapy to discover choices and options and what is going on in your life at this moment. Cognitive behavior therapy to assist with recognizing how your thinking affects your behavior. Family therapy which will focus on establishing boundaries and building relationships skills. With these therapeutic styles as the focal point, it is still my practice to select one or a combination of approaches that will best fit the person and their needs. Not one approach fits all. I will tailor therapy to your specific needs.
My style of therapy is to create a warm therapeutic environment where you feel safe, relaxed and open to begin discussing concerns. The decision to seek therapy can be scary and feel overwhelming. Making this decision together can lessen your apprehension and provide room for change to occur. I provide genuineness, caring and empathy during my sessions. I encourage us to work together to create a treatment plan that is right for you.
I am looking forward to us working together and enlighten you with a different way of thinking. Don’t worry I will meet you where you are, and we can make the transition together.

She help me out a lot .She help me find something inside of me that I didn’t know I had and help build my confidence. I will recommend her even to my closest friends.
Denise goes above and beyond for her patients. I couldn't recommend her enough!
Denise is kind, empathetic and professional. I trust her advice very much and she always makes time for me. I'm so glad I found her.
Denise is easy to talk to and listens to each of us with a neutral perspective that helps us understand each other better. I see a positive change in my marriage.
Denise is wonderful! She approaches therapy in a conversational and easy manner. It feels more like talking to a friend than therapy - but she always leaves you with an important nugget of information to mull over, or a bit of practice to improve your relationship and your life. I also appreciate that she listens to both myself and my husband as individuals in our sessions, as well as a couple. It's important to understand both parties, and she does a great job with that!
Denise is amazing. I’m so grateful to find a counselor on here that is consistent and makes an effort to truly assist and help our relationship get better. She is consistent on checking in as well as following up and offering sound advice. I also like the homework and worksheets she provide for us to read and work on. I would recommend her to anyone whom is seeking a consistent counselor who always go above and beyond to make sure things get better and move in a better way individually as well jointly in relationships. Her heart and kindness is the icing on the cake!
She has been an amazing aspect in my life. Despite of what issues I was experiencing she always help me get through it all.
