Accepting New Clients

Denise Chain, BA (she, her, hers) has worked in a collegiate setting since 1998. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Neumann University and is currently in her second year in Neumann’s Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling graduate program. It was Denise’s work as chaplain to the Neumann University women’s volleyball team that inspired her to pursue counseling as a career. Through working with college students as well as adults living with trauma, she has gained experience helping individuals navigate their way through unique and diverse challenges and situations. As Denise’s clinical experience deepens and grows, she is interested in helping others address pain through empathy, compassion, and a variety of treatment modalities. In her work at the Phoenix Center, Denise will continue to grow her skills and strengthen her experience in trauma therapy, EMDR, spiritual counseling, psychodrama, and narrative therapy.

“As a therapist, I see myself as your companion on this journey. My goal is to cultivate a safe space where you can feel free to share your past, confront present challenges, and experience the healing that comes from reconnecting with yourself. You will grow to understand that you do not walk this road alone, and together we will set out on the path toward a better future. A consistent, empathetic therapeutic relationship of presence, trust, and safety is of utmost importance to me, and I look forward to sharing this space with you.”

“Start by doing what’s necessary, then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible” – St. Francis of Assisi

Denise’s typical fee is $85 for individual therapy (50 min); she can work on a flexible sliding scale if needed.
