Dennis has been awesome! He met with me on very short notice for my first session. He is very educated in his field and has provided me many resources in the few sessions I've had with him. I highly recommend Dennis to anyone looking for someone to talk to.

Dennis has been a great resource for me and my wife. We came to him with pretty average and general issues, but he has been a great bridge for us to come together and discuss our issues in a productive manner. He has recommended some resources for us and we have been able to spend more time together working on our relationship and growing together. Highly recommended.

I did grief counseling with Dennis for the loss of my mother and going through a divorce. Was very caring informative and enlightening. Would recommend it to others that are going through the grieving process.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My Discounted rate for Thumbtack clients is $75-$100 (pre-covid rates $120 & $140...and they will likely return, just as a heads-up) for 1hr (I often go beyond an hour if/when a client requires the additional time and I am known to not rush a client because it’s your time and it’s about the client in-session) $75 for individual $100 for couple

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The way I begin is with an initial intake-assessment and interview (interviewing each other) to help discern if you and myself are professionally a good fit so that your time is not wasted.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Graduate degree from the highly esteemed and accredited Northwestern University (NU) and graduate assistant in the program; approved mentor to other graduate students in the same program; and hyper-focused efforts that earned a 3.8gpa. The dynamic program prepared, equipped and has since translated into my becoming a more intuitive professional whom continues to strive towards listening deeply to hear what others have not heard you say...and to...”get it” and then get real and conceptualize and collaborate together with you as a team. NU was a psychodynamic-psychotherapy based program that integrated what is arguably the best evidence based therapy methods available. Additional training has included ACT, DBT, EMDR, Advanced EMDR, and more. My favorites tend to include (1) people-centered therapy, (2) CBT or cognitive behavioral therapy, (3) EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing, which is my favorite for helping people with any trauma experience(s). There’s others and yet I’m running out of room here. 😃
