"Within just a couple of weeks there was a significant change. I am now doing things I haven't been able to do for years. Her methods work!" - S.G 

Denise Porter has 25 years of experience helping people overcome problems like those mentioned above.  She is good at what she does and countless clients can testify to her skill as a counselor.  In addition, she works in a unique way that makes the counseling process emotionally uplifting instead of digging up more pain and hurt.

Denise believes in producing results.  She tailors each session to the unique set of concerns that her clients have.  She has a process that takes the best of traditional counseling and discards those things that don’t work—like spending endless hours ruminating over old problems.  She points her clients in the direction of new answers, challenges them with tasks to implement those solutions, and serves as a coach gently nudging, and cheering on her clients to new vistas of recovery and healing.
