My new therapist made me realize just how ineffective Denise was. I endured 3 months of weekly couple's therapy with Denise that went absolutely nowhere, except leading us to give up and part ways. She asked questions during our sessions but rarely offered any insight into our problems or tried to find the core issues. She found it easier to focus on my bf's drinking when i told her it was not the deal breaker. He constantly felt attacked by her. The time and $$$$ spent with her was absolutely useless. My bf went one last time w/o me and he came back and told me that Denise said she didn't think I really loved him. What kind of professional says that???

In just one session, my new therapist was able to find the cause of my hurt and explain how it was affecting the relationships around me and, incidentally, he was able to tell me why the ex and I didn't work out without ever meeting the him. My new therapist also answers his phone during business hours (I always got Denise's VM and inevitably played phone tag with her) and he told me I could call him anytime if I had questions or need to talk. Denise was never open about her time.
