Areas of Expertise
Trauma Informed Care
Denise specialises in providing trauma informed care, understanding that each person experiences trauma differently. She aims to create an individualised treatment plan that is tailored to your needs and goals.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive behavioural therapy is also offered as part of your treatment options. This approach focuses on identifying and changing negative patterns of thinking and behaviour that are contributing to your current struggles.
Mindfulness techniques are incorporated into therapy sessions. This helps you to become more aware of your thoughts and emotions, and develop tools to manage them effectively.
Psychological and Psycho-Educational Evaluations
In addition to therapeutic support, diagnostic and psycho-educational evaluations are also offered.
If your child is struggling academically or you are concerned about them meeting their developmental expectations, a Psych-Educational Evaluation may be helpful.
Adult diagnostic assessments are also available; with the aim of providing clarity on Fitness to Return to Duty, Legal Matters, or other Vocational or Occupational needs.
I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy; working with you to identify your goals and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs.
My approach is grounded in empathy, validation, and respect for your experiences. I strive to create a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your feelings and work towards healing. My ultimate goal is to empower you to make positive changes in your life.
