"I came to know Dr. Fournier during a difficult time in my life. With her assistance I’ve learned to deal with and overcome the issues that were causing me daily pain and keeping me from enjoying my life. During our sessions she was very easy to speak with and I found myself expressing things I’ve been unable to speak about to anyone; she listened, and she helped me realize that I’m able to help myself grow, prosper, and feel joy and peace. I’ve spoken with many therapists and I consider my sessions with Dr. Fournier the most helpful I’ve had. Dr. Fournier introduced me to “Mindfulness”. She explained it clearly and taught me how to practice it. Thanks to this practice and Dr. Fournier I now realize that I have the power to change and create a life that really works for me and that I enjoy every day. I recommend Dr. Fournier as the first choice for anyone considering therapy or anyone who wants to improve their lives."
“I thought my time spent working with Denise was extremely helpful in my initial recovery and the long term sobriety that I am after. She took it to a very personal level and I believe she understood my background and the work I needed to do to move forward. She was not institutional in giving advice. She actually took the time to learn about me as an individual.”
"Dear Denise, I just wanted to write a little thank you note for being so wonderful and helping me see things in different and new ways. I was just meeting with a student, and after she left, she said how great our meetings have been, and I realized that's so much due to how you help me see myself and my place in the world. I had to send you a thank you because many of your great conceptualizations and insights make me a better support for the people in my life at work and at home. Thank you!"
“I remember the first session that I had with Denise. She made me feel 100% comfortable but also made me think of questions that were uncomfortable and that challenged me to become responsible for my growth. I am grateful every day that Denise is part of my life and saved my life. The sessions that I had with her were raw, real, painful, and joyous.”
“Finding a therapist that works for you, and with you, can be difficult. I started working with Denise for help with martial issues. During our work together, I found her to have a peaceful demeanor with a methodology and approach that were warmly accepted and relatable. She understands the emotional complexity of relationships and family and is there as a guide to help simplify it and get to the root of the situation."
Working with Dr. Fournier was transformative. Her empathy, knowledge, and thoughtful perspective created a safe space to explore difficult experiences. She did this expertly from the first session, putting me at ease immediately. Her ability to connect with me and understand my context was reassuring. Dr. Fournier wonderfully balanced time for me to talk and think aloud with providing insights that helped me better understand what I was working through. She clearly cared about me and was invested in my success. I could not have gotten to where I am today—happy, centered, confident, and with the skills to continue learning, growing, and dealing with future stressors—without her help. I would strongly recommend Dr. Fournier without reservation to any of my loved ones!
