Dennis' Personal Statement:
First of all, I truly enjoy my work! I find that helping people realize their goals and reducing their discomfort or anguish in their lives is incredibly gratifying for me. If you are motivated to change, I am confident that I can help you facilitate that change. Usually at the end of our first session I will let you know if I think I can be of help and if not, I will try to refer you to someone who I think would be a better match for your issues.
Although I use many strategies in my work, I have found that the Cognitive-Behavioral approach is the best fit for my therapeutic style. In this approach the focus is on the present, future, and problem solving. I use a holistic approach to therapy, combining an easy going style with a knowledge of what seems to work with the issues that my clients present. I often use books, articles, and movies to aid in the dialogue of therapy and change. Most clients report that they look forward to their sessions.
