Welcome to BetterHelp and congratulations for taking the courageous first step of reaching out for help - I know how difficult that can be.

I am a family and marriage therapist licensed in California with over 13 years of experience working in the counseling field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, addictions, and relationship issues. I also have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive, and I combine client-centered, humanistic, and mindfulness based approaches. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I look forward to working with you!

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.

I appreciate the kind and wise words from my therapist. He is also a great listener which makes me able to speak what’s on my mind and heart. I am thankful to have a great therapist

I've filled these out before, but Denny has provided me the tools to help understand my emotions and as a result, get a better handle on my temper (my initial need) but also just my life in general.
