My specialty is working with parents, partners, and caregivers of people with traits of Borderline Personality Disorder. Relationships with someone living with BPD may involve ongoing conflicts and intense emotional reactions that leave you feeling confused and inadequate. Many people I work with feel mistreated by the person that they are trying to show love to and struggle to find balance between accepting the symptoms of the mental illness and setting boundaries to meet their own needs.

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." - Unknown I believe that we have the answers to our own struggles, but sometimes we just need help accessing those answers. My approach to counseling is one of helping my clients understand themselves better so that they can face life's difficulties with confidence.

Do you feel stuck or like failure is your normal? Do you have painful memories or nightmares of the past that still haunt you and wish you could just move past them? Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based treatment that resolves the body's response to trauma, phobias, or negative life experiences. Whether you are a survivor of a horrific trauma or you have experienced adverse life events, I’m here to help you move past those experiences and into a more fulfilling future. Most people can benefit from EMDR therapy, which is often coupled with CBT and other therapies.

Prevention is always preferred. In life the saying goes 'luck favors the prepared'. In counseling, you are most effective when you can prevent struggles compared to reacting to them after they have begun. At Awaken360, we recognize that you and your family may recognize subtle changes in one another before anyone else does. At Awaken360 our heart is to reach people before struggles, mistakes, and hurt feelings begin to pile up and cause real damage not only to relationships, but your ability to have a happy life and future. We believe no situation is too far for help or repair and we seek to partner with you as you work to overcome the following struggles: histories of abuse, adoption or foster care struggles, attachment issues, infertility, stress management, marital/premarital counseling, emotional instability, impulsive or high-risk behaviors, separation or divorce, suicidal ideations, history of self harm, substance use/abuse, anger/aggression, involvement in judicial system, depression, anxiety, and trauma. Visit Awaken360.org to see real change that lasts and inquire about our three treatment options: Outpatient Counseling, Youth Therapeutic Academy, and Family Intensives.

Counselor, MS, LPC, NCC, MAC

My name is Denniese Dysart and my goal is to provide a casual and welcoming atmosphere while assisting you to find your own path in personal discovery and wellness. On this course I will help you identify and cope more effectively with problems in daily living and to deal with inner conflicts which may disrupt your ability to function effectively. A very important aspect of counseling is the relationship that builds between the client and the counselor. This may be the only time and place where you can take front and center stage, be actually “heard”, and be in the presence of someone who is non-judgmental.

I work with teens and adults with a range of concerns including Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Family, and related issues. I have worked in residential settings, helping children and youth deal with trauma. My time working in bereavement has also given me valuable insight into working with grief. I am able to integrate the Christian faith into the counseling session for those who appreciate that perspective. I offer in-office sessions as well as telehealth.

There are several reasons why people feel stuck in their life story that prevent them from growing into the person they want to become... A past that continues to return to the present, patterns that are unbreakable alone, major life changes, uncontrollable circumstances, feelings of shame - the list goes on. I love working with clients looking to improve themselves, their relationships, and learn to face their struggles.

None of us come out of childhood without some cuts and bruises. Sometimes physical, but more oftentimes emotional. For many, these emotional wounds are still tender, open, lightly dressed with a bandage, forgotten, or even neglected. So when these emotions get touched we find ourselves reacting in ways that aren’t in line with the kind of person we want to be.

Hi, my name is Jen. If you are like the rest of us, I imagine life has been a little chaotic and more uncertain lately. Feeling unsettled and uncertain about the future can create challenges in all areas of our lives. It is completely normal to feel unsettled, but you can learn and practice tools that will help you regain a sense of peace in your life. The two most common questions I get in sessions are: 1) Am I crazy; and 2) Can you really help me? First, you are NOT crazy. Struggles with anxiety and depression are much more common than you think! Second, I can help you, as I have helped many others. Don't hesitate to reach out!

I believe in a confidential, non-judgmental, relationship-centered counseling environment where individuals, families, and couples can openly and safely discuss their thoughts and feelings. Each client is treated with respect and supported to gain greater self-understanding and self-awareness. The client is at the center of therapy and determines the direction of therapy. I present different perspectives and ideas and help the client identify and develop their own ways to resolve blocks to personal growth and to improve communication and the relationships in their lives.

The client and I are active throughout the counseling process. I have found that this process is a journey towards healing and thriving in all areas of life.

As a counselor, I believe it is my role to provide a safe and compassionate space for each person that chooses to share their experience with me. My job is to help each person I see to explore past hurts, to put voice to feelings, and to help each person make meaning out of their life. It is my belief that many of us walk this world not fully allowing ourselves to come into our own, due to a fear of not being accepted and due to limiting beliefs given to us by others and society.

I hope to work with clients that are motivated to develop trust with their body and connection to their story. Developing this trust within the self aids in developing effective resources to cope with the stressors of life. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, difficulty maintaining relationships, and utilizing maladaptive coping skills are some of. the ways past traumas manifest in daily life. I enjoy helping clients develop a nonjudgemental perspective to understand their traumas and how these experiences impact them presently. I enjoy working with clients to strengthen their self-compassion and increase their adaptive skills.
