• Is your life not what you imagined?

  • Do you feel stuck and overwhelmed by feelings of sadness or anxiety?

  • Does your weight interfere with your ability to feel good about yourself?

  • Are you experiencing a quarter or midlife crisis or transition?

  • Is your self-esteem at an all time low?

  • Do you feel bad and have no idea why or how to make yourself feel better?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, do not continue to struggle alone.  You can take back control of your life.

Denise Gaillard, MA, LCSW

I have spent years helping people live healthier and more balanced lives through therapy and coaching. I provide a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to explore your current challenges and move towards creating positive change. We start where you are and together build goals to create the life that you envision for yourself.

I am a Licensed Therapist and Certified Personal Trainer. I have a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Chicago and a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Ellis University. I love the work that I do and have a true passion for helping people live authentic and happy lives - whatever that looks like to them. I am thankful for the space to combine my passion for therapy with my love of fitness and health.

Change only happens when the pain of remaining the same becomes greater than the pain of change. Asking for help is often the hardest step in healing and creating change in your life. Therapy provides a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to get the support and coping strategies that you need to alleviate the pain and pressures of life and gain a greater sense of clarity, peace of mind, and wellbeing.

Do not continue to suffer and struggle in silence. Reach out for help. You can move forward and create the life that you desire.
