Do you move between culturally different worlds on a regular basis? Perhaps you feel that you don't completely fit in, that your identity is mixed or "in between," and you long to say what you've never before dared to say? Maybe you missed a warm, nurturing upbringing because you were taught to focus on achievement at the expense of emotional needs. Is this a legacy you wish to accept for yourself or your children? As the American-born child of Filipino immigrants, these issues resonate deeply with me, and I can help if you feel stuck between opposing cultural values.

Danielle B Therapy has gone virtual! Now fully online therapy offering services to clients anywhere in California! So often we are taught to push forward on our own, suppress our needs and avoid reaching out. We have been conditioned to think that getting support somehow makes us weak. And yet, needing support and connection is the most universally human experience out there...so human to human, i'm here to help. I believe in more acceptance and less fixing, more compassion and less comparison, and more curiosity and less certainty. I believe we all have a shot at living healthy, fulfilling and meaningful lives.

You may be experiencing acute emotional pain due to an unexpected change in your life, or you may feel that the suffering has been there for a long time and coping on your own is no longer enough. You may find yourself feeling stuck, overwhelmed, disconnected, or lonely, repeating the same patterns without being able to find your way out. You may be wishing for deeper relationships, a more satisfying and creative job, or relief from inner turmoil. If you continue to feel insecure, anxious, or depressed, no matter what you try, therapy can help.

Sucks to live with thoughts, feelings and beliefs that aren’t welcoming, hopeful or kind, doesn’t it? When that inner stream is clouded with shame, negativity or apathy, therapy can be a filter to clear out the toxins and make way for the new - the braver, the steadier, the integrated; the you that has the room and gumption to flourish. Getting acquainted with your badass, authentic self deserves your full attention, intention and compassion.

Often what brings someone to seek therapy is a chronic issue that has reached a crisis point: anger, depression, anxiety, self-worth, intimacy problems, communication issues and many more. Sometimes it is a recent change in one's life: infidelity, a move, or the end of a relationship. Taking the risk to ask for help is the first step on the road towards healing and growth. Our therapists include Jacob Donnelly, Stacey Klein and Walker Witte.

If your life had a resumé, “chameleon” would be at the top. You’re so good at figuring out others’ needs, they’d never suspect that you have them too. If you were honest with yourself, though, you’d admit how stressful it is to live for other people. You’re terrified you’ll lose relationships if you speak up or say no. Your energy is drained or you feel resentful. You’re exhausted from wondering if others like you or approve of you. If you make choices that disappoint others, you feel guilty and selfish. Your whole identity is about pleasing others, & you want to feel comfortable being your authentic self, but you have no idea how.

My experience includes 15 years of helping clients heal themselves and their relationships.The essence of my counseling approach is each person has access to health and well being regardless of what is currently being experienced. I help clients regain that innate health through deep listening and non-judgmental feedback. I work deeply with current thoughts, beliefs and feelings about one's self to uncover deep seated self-judgment that blocks happiness. Anxiety, depression and unhappiness transform into greater peace and understanding. In turn, self awareness is enhanced which leads to greater understanding, compassion and empathy for self and others.

Perhaps you identify as an introvert, empath, creative, changemaker, or healer. You feel deeply, and you are concerned about others. Outwardly, you’ve held it together, worked hard to keep others happy. But inside, you're spinning out, exhausted, frustrated with yourself and others, feeling unseen.

Individuals who worry that they are "too much" for a therapist often find me to be a good fit. I see adults, teens, couples and poly groups. I have led grief groups for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. I have specialized in young adults and late teens for nearly two decades. Often therapists are not aware of the specific developmental needs of young adults and so there is a high drop out rate for YA in therapy settings. Many of my clients are creative, questioning, and active in multiple diverse communities. They tend to want a therapist who is active, engaging, and collaborative with the therapy process.
