About

Going to see a therapist can be nerve-wracking, especially if you have been to one before that you did not 'click’ with. ​Danielle assists you to feel good about where you stand in relation to the world, how you navigate it and how you relate to other people. Danielle prides herself on using humor, warmth, support and a casual approach, to help you understand yourself, work out why you have gotten stuck and collaboratively create your unique map, for getting unstuck. Danielle helps to get your brain and body on board, so as to work the best for you.
There's an assumption that we should already be great at life, despite not generally being taught the skills to be as effective, confident, emotionally stable or as clear headed as we want to be. Danielle believes that the right therapist can help our unique brain and nervous system to learn those skills in a way that is more easeful.
Danielle provides an attentive and collaborative space to help you look at your patterns respectfully, create healthy boundaries and to live the way you want to, with a lot more ease. She also has a special interest in the intersection between neurodiversity, trauma and gender.
