About Den













I hold my undergrad degree in Social Relations from Grand Valley State University, my M.A. in Guidance & Counseling from Eastern Michigan University, earned my secondary teaching certificate & School Counseling Certification from Western Michigan University,  am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Michigan, a Reiki Master, trained by Bonnie Dysinger of Gentle Touch Healing, & had Life Coach training from the Institute For Life Coach Training in Ohio where I hold a Professional Endorsement. I am a member of the Michigan Counseling Association.  I also have certificates for Esoteric Healing training, levels 1-5 from Dr. Barbara Briner at The Institute for Bioenergy Studies in Okemos, Michigan, & am a  Certified Hypnotist from my training with  Robert Ranger at The Institute of Transformational Hypnotherapy in East Lansing, Michigan.  I have led many small groups on topics such as Children of Divorce, Grief & Loss, New Student Support, Marriage Support, Life Balance & Goal Setting, A Course on Miracles, & Happiness, & have given workshop presentations about Self Love. I continue to work on my personal & professional growth by taking classes & workshops & have been in an on going Masters group class for spiritual growth with Sara Landon since June of 2020. I consider myself a "life long learner".

I have worked in both schools & organizations as a counselor, & served 4 different school districts, including a K-8 private school for a year.  After 21 years of service at Okemos High School, as a School Counselor, I retired from the Okemos Community Schools. After retirement I felt called to continue helping others so I enrolled in Reiki training & soon after took classes towards becoming a Life Coach. I have owned & operated my own business of Joyful Spirits since 2013 & have worked with clients ages 13 to 86.  I have come to believe that whether it's Counseling, Life Coaching, or Reiki & energy work, each avenue has the capacity to help us heal by "unpeeling the onion". One layer at a time--we become aware & learn, grow, & heal, creating new beliefs & choices towards reaching the essence of the truth & love who we are. We are the creators of our life.


I look forward to meeting you & assisting you with concerns, issues, & feelings  you may be experiencing, & creating change in your life, whether it is from your own desire & initiative to grow and heal, or due to your journey through life circumstances. Please contact me today for an appointment!   




"The greatest force in the human body is the natural drive of the body to heal itself--but that force is not independent of the belief system.

Everything begins, therefore, with belief."
