Dr. Denise Seastrunk began her career in nursing from Lousiana State University and from there decided to pursue her master's in mental health nursing at Texas Woman’s University, and a Phd in clinical psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, CA.
“For as long as I can remember, I have always been interested in beauty and physical health. I was a skinny and awkward teenager, with extremely fair skin and a nose that didn't suit me. Socializing was difficult for me, and I longed to be confident beautiful and popular.
One day my father, an MD, decided I needed to have a rhinoplasty when I finished high school to correct the bump on my nose. That was a life changing moment for me. I think it is probably the single most important physical improvement that I could have made. I went from being a shy, awkward young girl to a beautiful woman. I projected the self-confidence I felt and others noticed it too.
My quest for beauty didn’t stop there as I continued to look for the latest aesthetic trends while pursuing my nursing and psychology career. I noticed that my my clients' depressed outlook changed when they made some simple changes to their appearance.
As I continued to search for a way to combine aesthetics and psychology, I became the psychology evaluator at a weight loss surgery clinic . I saw how obesity affected patients and their self-esteem, many of them experiencing clinical depression. I decided to pursue a course in medical aesthetics and received my certification in botox and fillers, which has lead me to combining my love of aesthetics and psychology. I have also been trained in Viora skin tightening procedures for every area of the body.
