Denise E. Schenk, MA, LPC, CAC III

The Rooted Heart:  body-centered psychotherapy

What people are saying...

"I have known Denise for over 20 years.  One word can describe her....depth. She values growth within her Self and is constantly deepening her awareness into her own soul. Her ability to go within and grow is not only a valuable quality in a friendship but also in her work as a psychotherapist.  When you meet Denise you know that she, too, has walked and lived in the dark as well as the light.  This quality about Denise allows others to become vulnerable and raw and truly be at ease with their true Self. Denise is a woman who I always feel my truest Self with.  She is a woman with great intuition and grounding energy."

- Tevara Paranto, LCSW Private Practice- Denver, Colorado

"I have known and worked with Denise Schenk for 10+ years now.  Denise brings a high level of experience and a well rounded approach to working with her clients.  I have witnessed numerous clients of Denise's achieve growth in the desired areas of their life in which they sought out assistance in.  Her additional training in substance abuse offers benefits to many of the individuals and is another reason that I refer clients to her.
