Therapy is an art, not a science. Since every person is a unique individual, therapy will vary depending on the persons involved. Hence, there can be no one approach to therapy which works for everyone. To facilitate change, different techniques may be used. However, the forging of a therapeutic alliance is essential for change. Research has shown that a successful outcome in therapy depends on this. In humanistic psychology, emphasis is placed on self-actualization. A propensity to self-actualize is presumed to exist in all persons. Karen Horney made the following analogy to illustrate this phenomenon.

My approach as a therapist is affirming, collaborative, strengths based, and tailored to each client I work with. I focus on providing a judgment-free zone so that clients have space and support to work on their personal goals. I hope to build a strong relationship with each client because I believe that a strong relationship is important to our ability to work together and helps to strengthen the client's ability to reach their goals. Therapy can sometimes be hard work and often means facing difficult experiences from our past. My hope is that I am providing a space where the client never feels alone in the process.

I understand that finding a therapist can be extremely anxiety provoking and difficult. This is why I hope to provide my clients with a non-judgmental and supportive environment that facilitates their ability to address presenting issues or concerns.

Hi, I am Danielle. Fun Facts: I am an only child, kind of. I come from an eclectic and blended family and understand the chaos and beauty that love can bring. I have personal experiences with chronic illness since a young age and can totally understand the phenomenon of people thinking "you don't look sick," when you definitely are. I am a huge animal lover, having experienced the joys and the pain that come with the loss of a furry friend. With all of my own experiences, I feel so honored and privileged that I have a job where I get to walk alongside others while journey through their ups and downs of this weird little life we get.

Do you find that old coping skills have become inadequate as time goes on and life's challenges change? Are you wrestling with emotional clarity or the resolution of past experiences or circumstances. For many, a collaboration with a therapist can provide a safe space to explore areas of dissatisfaction or conflict with oneself and others. Finding a good therapist is a matter of finding someone who listens, empathizes, is responsive, and can empower you with hope and bravery to do the difficult work involved in change. I can provide that individualized approach for you.

Please note: I am no longer accepting insurance. Are you experiencing communication issues with your significant other? Does it feel like you spend more time arguing than enjoying each other's company? Call me anytime and we can set up a free phone consultation. Couples therapy can give you the chance to address negative patterns in your relationship that may be keeping you from experiencing true intimacy. And if your partner is not motivated to attend therapy with you, individual treatment can help you better understand why you say/do/feel certain things which will help improve how you relate to others.

If you are on this site then you are probably hurting and frustrated. Are you seeking to rebuild your relationship, restore trust and enjoy each other again? It all comes down to communication and building a strong foundation. Relationships can bring us great joy, love and connectedness; however, they can also cause us great pain and frustration. Do you want your relationship to be great but can’t seem to communicate about what is important to you without an argument? Does it seem that your partner doesn’t hear you or understand and that even simple topics turn into disagreements? I believe I can help you achieve a breakthrough.

YOU’RE TIRED OF RELIVING THE PAST -You find yourself rehashing it over and over and over again, and all you want is for it to stop. Out of the blue, you are paralyzed with feelings of fear, vulnerability and panic from everyday situations. You’re far too familiar with being on high-alert, and never letting your guard down. You feel anxious, and held captive to past trauma, that you just can't seem to let go. It’s hard to sleep and the nightmares don’t stop. You can’t talk about it because no one understands. You don’t recognize yourself anymore. You wonder what’s wrong with you.
