Denice considers herself a “functional, flexible, and fun” therapist. “I want the client to work on activities in therapy that will be important on a daily basis to client and family. If it isn’t working, I change it, and if it isn’t fun, I change it.”

In her spare time, Denice goes to the Theatre with her husband and spends time texting with her daughter who is attending college in NYC!
