My other areas of expertise are grief/bereavement, adjustment to major life transitions, cross-cultural issues, and chronic illness .
I know what it's like to feel broken, hopeless, and alone. I also know how it feels to come out of a season like that. One of my greatest passions is to walk alongside others facing challenges that they feel unequipped to handle. It takes courage to ask for help, especially with the negative stigma attached to therapy. I offer a safe and non-judgmental space to help adults and children find the strength to move forward. Wherever it is that you find yourself, know that you are not meant to go through it alone.

We are all in different seasons of life, and the best part about seasons is they only last for awhile. I have had the privilege of growing and learning through each season of my life, with the first part of my career in medical healthcare and for the last decade in mental health care. I believe that people are good and well intended. As humans living amongst other humans, we likely have experienced a traumatic event that keeps us feeling stuck or perhaps struck with anxiety, depression, and fear.

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.

“We are all just walking each other home.” —Ram Dass ••• Throughout our lives, we all ebb and flow through various connections. Maybe you’re feeling out of touch with yourself, and seeking out your own truths. Maybe you’ve been deeply hurt by a past connection with someone and are seeking healing. Maybe the daily pressures have hit a limit that just doesn’t feel manageable anymore. I want you to know from the get-go that you’re not alone in these struggles, and showing up for yourself is the first (not always easy) step toward healing.

I believe every one of my clients has the ability to improve, adapt, and express themselves more genuinely. They often come to therapy because they feel stuck. You may be depressed, anxious, in pain, or driven to the point of breaking but there's still a spark that can be the start of something better. I want to be with my clients every step of the way, in a relationship that can assist them in becoming who they are, recovering from what weighs on them, redeeming their past, and making a brighter future.

Are you struggling to maintain your emotional health due to a specific life situation, unhealthy lifestyle or medical health issue? This is not uncommon, and the fact is you are not alone. Many people have the desire to make a positive change; however lack knowledge, guidance, or the tools needed to do so. Others may require motivation for behavior change or support in a challenging season. Regardless of your particular circumstance and needs, we can work together to make your goals a reality. I provide therapy and psychological evaluations/testing. Non denominational Christian Counseling based on the Bible is offered as requested.

I look forward to working with clients whose life path may have created difficulties for them that has led them not be the best of who they can be. Each individual's path may have been sprinkled with physical or emotional abuse, neglect, assault, grief and loss, domestic violence, marital or parental discord or a myriad of other situations. Sometimes these life paths create in my clients a feeling of hopeless and loss of self-worth, sometimes these path end with someone needing to determine a plan to leave an unsafe living situation. Sometimes these paths lead to turning to substances and illegal drugs to cope with the internal turmoil and pain. It is my privlege to work with clients to help them identify and bring forth the best of who they are and what they want for their life, their family and their future through their own individual strengths.

Are you finding yourself feeling stressed and overwhelmed, and not sure how to cope? Perhaps you have a natural tendency to please and take care of others, but then find yourself struggling to cope. During my 20 plus years as a therapist, I've helped people with a variety of difficulties, and have developed a special interest in working with those who have a tendency to please and take care of others. I get you! You likely have difficulty saying "no" and end up taking on too much; you may struggle with feeling overwhelmed and stuck, lacking motivation, and likely feeling depressed, lonely, and/or anxious.

Do you feel burnt out, exhausted, or overwhelmed? If so, know that you aren't alone. The process of therapy isn't just “talking about your problems.” It is about building self-awareness, making changes to our thoughts and behaviors, as well as learning and practicing coping skills. Through the process, I help clients learn to cope with stress, manage relationship conflicts, and improve their overall well-being. My ideal client is someone who is motivated, insightful, and open to change. I enjoy working with professionals and those in the helping field.

Have you felt guilt or shame because life was more challenging than you expected it would be post-adoption? Have relationships been a struggle? Does someone acting "off" around you fill you with worry? Attachment issues can be a common struggle for those who have been involved in foster care/adoption. As a fellow adoptee, I too, know the confusion, pain, and feelings a lack of identity and attachment wounds can bring to this family dynamic. Therapy can provide a neutral space to process through those emotions. You can learn skills to confidently handle what life throws at you and take time to heal through the hurt in a healthy way.

What type of Springfield mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Springfield?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
