About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor who has experience in counseling in behavioral hospitals, mental health communities, and university counseling centers. I have worked with a variety of populations ranging from children, adolescents, young adults, couples, students (native/International), addicted, refugees, and homeless people with severe mental health problems.
I can help by creating a safe place for your children to show their feelings and how to find the cause of their distress, how to ask for help, and how to express themselves in a better way. I believe your child is best supported when the entire family is involved in the therapy. As a family, you will learn positive changes you can make to better the life of your child and your family as a whole.
Worrying about your child can be tough, but I am here to help you and your child live a happy, successful, and fulfilling life.
I love art and use it in sessions especially with kids and young adults because I believe that art is a method of self-expression. Expressive art helps your children to express themselves and work through their feelings. During the process, they gain more insight into their minds and feelings. Art therapy can be utilized to serve clients of all ages.

At first I was very apprehensive and we haven’t had very many sessions but after our first visit I was very satisfied with Denira. I feel like she has been there for me and has helped me find more courage and strength to be brave and seek more help.
