Meet the Therapists

Denise J. Weaver, L.C.S.W., Ph.D.


In 1994, Dr. Weaver earned her Bachelor degree in Social Work from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.  Continuing at Wayne State University she graduated a year later with a Masters of Social Work degree.  In 2007, Dr. Weaver graduated with a Ph.D. in Human Services, with a concentration in Management of Nonprofit, from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

After graduating with her Master of Social Work degree she began working for a large residential treatment facility wherein she was a therapist for incarcerated adolescent females.  Three and half years later Dr. Weaver began working at an outpatient clinic serving children, adolescents and adults.  It was only after two and half years that she was asked to join a dynamic new male residential treatment facility.  She served as the Program Manager and later Program Director for a total of seven years.  Dr. Weaver believes it was her calling to move south and continue to serve those who were in need. 

Dr. Weaver understands the needs of those who are struggling with depression, anxiety and life's adjustments.  Her passion is to help all those that seek it.  She has a special desire to help children, adolescents, adults and at-risk families restore their relationships and bring peace back into their homes.  You can read more about Dr. Weaver's God-vision and the new children's home in Cumberland County at
