Danelle Spence is not currently accepting new clients.
When people ask me about my "model of therapy," I usually say that I focus on two things: Brains and Relationships :) This method is founded on my belief that brains develop and create unique patterns of behaviour, and relationships influence functioning. I want to understand what may be happening in someone's brain when they are experiencing adverse symptoms. More specifically, what unhealthy patterns in the brain are causing this distress - then within the therapeutic relationship - work to shift this pattern, restructure the brain, and create healthier coping mechanisms.
While my practice and experience are pretty varied, there has always been an emphasis on working with older adolescents and their families. The developing teen brain and the beautiful chaos that ensues has always been a passion of mine! Over the past decade, much of my therapeutic work has focused on disordered eating patterns and body image concerns.
I believe healing and growth are most likely to occur with the combination of positive, emotionally attuned relationships and an understanding of how the brain interprets new information. Our brains heal in relationship to others. I always work from this premise and pride myself on building an easy, powerful therapeutic relationship with my clients.
