Professional Testimonials

“It has been my true joy and privilege to have worked so closely with Dr. Denise Humphrey over the past several years. So many of my patients that I have referred to Dr. Humphrey are relieved to find her professional approach is so personable and comforting, and she is so “normal”.  She combines her extraordinary personal skills with highly refined professional talents to bring tremendous benefit to her clients. I would fully endorse Dr. Denise Humphrey as one of my top referrals for individual and couples counseling work.” – Barry K. Knezek, M.D. 12810 Hillcrest Rd, Suite B120 Dallas, TX 75230

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Denise Humphrey at UTD, Galaxy Counseling Center and now as a trusted colleague in private practice consultation.  Dr. Denise Humphrey is a genuine, warm, caring clinician and person.  She exudes a sense of calm and wisdom that is such a gift to her clients and colleagues.  She has developed additional expertise in working with couples in crisis, and her compassion and skills provide an instrumental base to guide them.” – Dr. Antonia Guerra-Watson
