My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Denine believes the utmost importance is creating a feeling of safety, mutual respect, empathizing with not only what is spoken, but also what is left unsaid, but still present and felt. Her commitment is to get where her clients are coming from and to understand what is important to them. As a therapist she holds these qualities to be crucial to a therapeutic relationship, transformation and healing. These are attributes she values and offers to clients in our work together. Effective psychotherapy is not simply talking about your problems. It is about working towards solutions for the things you can change and accepting the things you cannot change. In essence the goal of psychotherapy is to help you "weather" the storms of life with a greater sense of calmness and confidence so that you can continue to grow and evolve. During the work emerges out this quality of interaction and your specific goals.
