Drs. Denise Lennon

(Ed.D, LMHC)

About Me

Hi, my name is Denise Lennon and I have been a mental health counselor for twenty-one years. I have a doctorate in Counseling Psychology and I am licensed in New York state as a Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults who experience mild and severe mental health illnesses. This includes adjustment disorders, depression disorders, anxiety disorders, ADHD, and oppositional defiant disorder. I have worked in both community based and educational settings.

I became a counselor because I have a passion for people and the human conditions. I have always had a sensitivity to people who were hurting, treated with disregard, or unfairly. I am a compassionate person and this comes across during the counseling process. Moreover, I encourage individuals to focus on their strengths while challenging them to push past their fears. I think that it is important to be sincere, honest, empathetic, and nonjudgmental so that a trusting therapeutic relationship can be established. My goal as a counselor is to guide and support people as they move through the healing process.

My preferred method of therapy is cognitive behavioral-based therapy, person-centered therapy, and mindfulness. I would be honored to work with you as you journey through the healing process.

Awesome and supportive professional who really is helpful to my daughter.

Drs Lennon is helping me to heal inside. I appreciate her so much. I love her. So much different than secular counselors I’ve had. She’s very supportive and affirming and I really need that right now after all the things I’ve been through. She also is reassuring that I did not deserve the harsh abuse I’ve received as a child and reaffirms to me that such treatment was very wrong. This truly affirms my personhood and makes me realize that such treatment was not Gods will. Drs Lennon is worth her weight in gold.

Drs. Lennon is a caring and knowledgeable counselor. She gives you space to share and provides reasonable feedback. She asks the right questions to help you think through your situation and she’s only a text message away.

I love Drs. Lennon! She is so knowledgeable and has the most calming nature. She’s so easy to talk to. She’s also very insightful and I find myself thinking about things she’s said after our sessions and they really help me work through difficult situations. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Written by M.O. on Jul 12, 2020 after counseling with Denise for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues

I don’t have lot of practice with therapy and I was worried virtual therapy would be a challenge. Drs. Lennon is very confortable with the format and made it feel normal. She responds well to my words. I occasionally write her responses down because they’re so well formed. It helps me to read them later when I’m processing a session. It is very clear she has had a lot of experience in the mental health field. I leave feeling whole every time.

Dr. Lennon has been a true blessing throughout my healing journey. She allows room for you as the client to decide what areas you are seeking inner healing for and provides options in which methods may work best with you. I am glad that I invested in my mental and emotional health by opting for teen counseling but even more grateful I was paired with a wonderful therapist like Dr. Lennon!
