The things I have learned from Dr. Slade have changed my life. I have a better relationship with myself, my husband, and my kids.

I wish I could have taken this course 20 years ago. My perspective and knowledge on how to engage with my spouse has been elevated and increased our mutual desire to work together to achieve a more satisfying and healthier marriage that will last forever!

– Daniel Z.


This was such a great experience for my husband & I. We learned so much about our own personalities and our joint relationship. Lots of great take-aways that enhanced our relationship immediately. I highly recommend this course for anyone & everyone!

– Maren J.



Across Dr. Slade’s many years of research, therapy, and education, personality has always intrigued him. Over time as a therapist, he didn’t feel that any one of the existing personality models accurately depicted what he saw working with clients. He began conducting clinical research. CORE is a temperament model that is the result of that research! It investigates the nature part of personality–the part that does not change–and helps explain not just WHAT we do, but WHY we do it.


TMS is a non-medication depression treatment that is offered at Denim’s office! It is non-invasive, has almost no side effects, and is covered by most insurance. TMS uses gentle magnetic pulses to stimulate brain activity. Our clinic has a success rate of over 90% in relieving depression symptoms!


Denim still works one-on-one with clients as a Ph.D. level coach! Dr. Slade, incorporates his expertise in sessions with homework and out-of-session support to help clients make the lifestyle changes to help them live healthy and happy lives. Denim’s schedule fills up quickly, so be sure to get on his wait list here!
