Hello, My name is Danielle

My name is Danielle, and I am someone who has a deep heart for learning, adventuring, and meeting people where they are in life. These passions have led me all over the world in personal travel and in my professional career through teaching about mental health or working with victims/survivors of trauma. These passions have also led me to engage in several advocacy efforts such as writing as an expert blog author on trauma for Psychology Today, authoring book chapters and publications on trauma/mental health, conducting research, providing trauma-informed care trainings for organizations, and more. As a human, I am someone who loves a good game night, exploring/going on adventures, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, watching movies, doing arts and crafts, learning new things, and being the goofy person I am.

My Story

In life, having a space where we can be seen, heard, accepted, and valued can be invaluable. As a survivor of trauma myself, I have seen the immense value that this type of space can bring. In my work as a therapist, my ultimate aim is to provide a counseling environment characterized by compassion and unconditional positive regard where together we can meet you authentically for who you are, right where you are, wherever that is. I align with research that suggests that a therapeutic space that offers safety and connection to the therapist and oneself is the most robust predictor of treatment success. Whether you are coming to therapy for trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, grief, stress, or something else, I believe in a collaborative journey that provides a space for you to be, explore, learn, grow, and heal.

In recognizing the beautiful uniqueness of each individual, I utilize a variety of evidence based, trauma-informed, strength-based, multiculturally informed, and social justice/multiculturally informed therapies to support my clients in their unique goals. I am an EMDR trained therapist and utilize somatic approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness practices, narrative therapy, art therapy practices, Internal Family Systems techniques, creative play and game therapy approaches, somatic approaches, and more. At the core of all that we would do in therapy is you, your strengths, your interests, and your needs.
