Welcome!  I am Dr. Denise Styer - a women's empowerment and leadership coach, eating disorder coach, consultant, author, international speaker, and psychotherapist. 

I received my doctorate of clinical psychology in 2001 from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago.  In August 2016, I became a certified Gaia Leadership Coach under the mentorship of Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin.

For the past 25 years my passion has focused on working with individuals (90% female, 10% male) who were struggling with eating disorders, nonsuicidal self-injury, trauma,  suicide, and the empowerment of adults and teens.

My current areas of specialty include Women's Empowerment, Leadership Coaching, Mental Wellness, Divorce Coaching, and Consultation of Eating Disorders and Nonsuicidal Self-Injury.  I am also available to provide presentations on these topics.

My work is now focusing on empowering individuals to overcome their limitations, use their voice, increase their self-worth, and be at peace with themselves.  I provide private coaching, consulting, and individual or group sessions.  I am located in the Chicagoland area, and am available for in-person or virtual coaching sessions.

Thank you for visiting my website.  If at any time you have questions, please email me at denisestyer@comcast.net.   I look forward to working with you!


For those wondering about the differences between therapy and coaching, here is snippet of Tony Robbins explanation:  "therapists focus on “why” certain behavioral patterns occur, and coaches work on “how” to work toward a goal".
