Denis is Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Buffalo, New York. He worked for over 20 years in the IT industry writing software, debugging systems, and turning his mental health into a garbage dumpster. Thankfully he found powerful tools to get him unstuck and moving forward again.
In the process of becoming equipped with these powerful psychotherapeutic tools, Denis became inspiration to share the journey of self-development with others. He is not only well versed in The Tools (by Stutz and Michels) which sparked his transformation years ago, but has since become certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and well trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. All of these approaches harmonize well with the wisdom of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness Based practices. Add to this the ultimate concerns of Existential Therapy and Denis' love for Carl Jung and his Shadow Work and you stand to benefit from a truly eclectic mix of evidence-based and wisdom-based approaches.
The ideal client for Denis' approach has already caught a glimpse of their unsung song. They are willing to pay the cost of pain and uncertainty to hear that melody finally unchained.
Denis is willing to meet clients in person or virtually.
