Hi, I’m Dr. Denise. I have a friendly, down-to-earth and professional approach that will put you at ease when talking about sensitive subjects. I have worked directly with people in the areas of sexuality, relationships, states of consciousness, and intimacy. I hold a Masters degrees in Human Sexuality from Widener University (Philadelphia), one of two accredited scholastic programs in human sexuality located in the US.
I also hold both a Masters degree and a Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology, from The California Institute of Integral Studies (San Francisco), a professional school of psychology that focuses on the the integration of Eastern Philosophy and Western Psychology.
I have studied embodied spiritual practices nationally and internationally through research and experiential learning in various parts of India, Europe, Indonesia and South Korea. I have conducted and published research on embodied psycho-spirituality.
How I work with clients
I work therapeutically and as a coach with people in California. I offer coaching packages and consultation to people outside of California and outside of the United States. I also work as a consultant for clinicians who would like to learn more about how they can offer psychedelic integration in their practices.
My practice has evolved over decades of devotion to various forms of study including dance/dance therapy, yoga/yoga therapy, somatic and energy psychology modalities, psychoanalysis, Jungian therapy, EMDR, sex therapy, energy modalities, sexology, rape crisis counseling and court advocacy, Early Intervention for infants and families, and substance/process addiction intervention.
I work individually and with groups surrounding topics of sexuality and psychedelics, women’s integration circles, patients who have gone through ibogaine treatment, and individuals who have microdosed.
I am highly trained in diverse modalities making my approach eclectic and have worked with people from all walks of life conducting therapy, coaching, consultation and ritual.
