She is both certified in hypnosis (CHT) and as an NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) Practitioner. Additional accomplishments include being a panelist at DWI seminars, public speaking, providing expert testimony, and credential training.


Dena founded the Center for Mental Health, LLC in 1998, and Dena and Yoga Wellness in 2011 which was expanded and renamed ZenLife. She believes in applying a holistic approach to wellness.  She is a graduate of Yogali Institute and University of Maryland, and a nationally certified Yoga Instructor through the Yoga Alliance (200-E-RYT and 500 RYT).
 
 Initially, my approach to treatment of addictions, depression and anxiety was cognitive behavioral therapy.  In 2010, I started  studying and integrating mindfulness, kabbalah, meditation, yoga, hypnosis, neurolinguistic programming (NLP), Jung and Reiki. I now refer to psychotherapy as "self-study" and "rehabilitation" as "wellness". The path became very clear how to approach treatment in our culture. My passion is to share this incredibly healing and healthy approach to living with everyone. In 2018, I closed all physical sites and continued with telesession/virtual therapy.
