More about me

Licensing: LMFT
Years in Practice: 32
State: CA

I am a family and marriage counselor licensed in California with over 30 years experience. I worked for 19 years as a therapist and supervisor at a county Children's Mental Health Department. While there I had the opportunity to lead parenting classes, lead support groups, and work with clients to improve communication and stability. The couples and families presented with a range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, adoption issues, attachment issues, abuse and trauma, and ADHD. In addition, I was the therapist for Juvenile Hall.

My counseling style is compassionate and open. I use a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach that is client driven. I know it takes courage to be vulnerable and I strive to provide a safe and trusting connection in order to benefit my client. The road to growth can be challenging and exciting, but it can lead to the life you have envisioned. I am here to support you on that path.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Denae is a wonderful counselor, her insight is always spot on. I feel like she hears me and understands me in a way that my last couple of counselors have not. I look forward to my sessions with her every week!

Danae offers compassion, wisdom, and communicative expertise in working with me. I feel understood but not coddled, advised but not lectured, and like I’m being clearly helped in a journey toward being my best self. Highly recommended.

I am so grateful that I have been able to work with Denae. I felt supported, LOVED, and trusted that she was not judging me amidst a crisis. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her support! I thank God for sending her to me.
