"Dena has helped me deal with a number of issues that I have been facing recently covering topics such as anxiety, grief and relationships. Throughout she has been patient, kind, caring, knowledgeable, empathetic and straightforward in all my sessions and in all our communications. In my opinion she has dealt with my issues in the exact way I needed and I am only sorry I cannot award a rating higher than 5 stars. This is how much I feel she has helped me deal with these issues directly and she has also given me the tools to grow and move past these issues. Cannot recommend more highly."
   
"Dena has helped my husband and I overccome communication and conflict issues,as well as anxieties and vulnerabilities as individuals. We would now probably be divorced or separated if we had not sought her help. I really feel like she has dealt effectively with very deep rooted tensions and the reasons behind them, where other counsellors have covered these issues on a much more superficial level, if at all. Worth ever penny."
   
"Dena has helped me come to terms with my situation, accept, and take positive changes to the way I think. I love myself a little more everytime I speak to her. She is empathetic and I feel safe speaking to her. I recommend her!"
   
"Dena has been exactly the professional that I need at this time in my life and I couldn’t recommend her enough. She’s knowledgeable, no-nonsense, kind and empathetic. "
   
"Engaging, empathetic but doesn’t take any nonsense! She is exactly what I needed."
