suffering from trauma to help them start leading fulfilling lives.


Whether you were the victim of abuse or bullying or you are a first responder or service member dealing with the aftermath of an incident,

we can guide you along the road to recovery.

An Individualized Approach to Trauma Counseling

The symptoms of trauma people experience are a result of how they personally experience, process or respond emotionally to an event. Everyone internalizes a traumatic event differently so we treat each person using an individualized approach.

"I know it’s over but I’m still scared and have flashbacks."

"I feel guilt and shame about what happened."

"Turning to alcohol and drugs is the only way I can cope."

"My family and friends say I’m disconnected."

"I can’t shake this overwhelming feeling of sadness."

You can overcome this.

It's not your fault.

Learn positive coping skills.

Be present and connect.

Joy is possible.

You are not defined by what happened to you. Counseling can help you work through complex emotions and find the path towards a beautiful life. Denise founded Life Quest Counseling and Consulting, LLC from a desire to help people through challenging times. We provide you with a safe and supportive space to share your story

and begin a new chapter living your best life.


"Denise will always honor someone's story. She has such a heart for people and the communities she serves. She will listen and be present and you will feel so much better after being in her presence no matter who you are or what

your circumstances may be." EC, Phoenix, AZ

A peaceful life filled with love and joy is within your grasp.

Your Trauma is Real

Psychological trauma occurs when a distressing event overwhelms your ability

to cope. We’re all wired differently and not everyone will

experience trauma from similar circumstances. 


Trauma can result from a single event or a repeated and prolonged experience such as: childhood abuse or neglect, sexual assault, domestic violence, natural disasters, medical diagnoses, treatments or illness, war, bullying, witnessing an accident

or act of violence, the death of a loved one, etc.


If your trauma symptoms last more than a month and significantly affect your ability to function, you may benefit from therapy to help you begin healing and living your best life. We will assess your specific experiences and symptoms and create a personalized treatment plan that will give you hope for the future.

  • Reduce or eliminate trauma symptoms

  • Improve your physical, emotional and spiritual health

  • Reclaim your self esteem

  • Overcome self-sabotaging behaviors

  • Learn techniques to identify triggers and minimize symptoms

  • Release the past and achieve inner peace

  • Build healthier relationships with yourself and others

There is hope. We can help you face your past so you can look to the future.
