I believe that healing is an art that takes time, practice, and love. Your healing needs to be done with upmost care and with the greatest intentions. As an intergenerational trauma specialist, you and I will become archeologists of your past, uncovering the missing pieces to help you become whole again. In this journey, we leave no stones unturned. Though I work with most individuals and couples, I especially love to work with mothers, healers, therapists, nurses, and those in the caring field. I also love to work with artists, writers, and soul seekers who wants to better connect with themselves to further their creations.
It's hard for you to put yourself first or even ask for help. You've been struggling with anxiety or burnout for a while and you know something needs to change, but you tend to take care of everyone else before yourself. You're usually the first to jump into help others and are the go-to person for your family, friends, or coworkers so prioritizing your own mental health almost feels selfish since you think you "don't have it that bad". But now you're ready to take the step to reconnect with your own needs, make yourself a priority, and clarify your core values so they can be your road map towards the life you want.
Are you struggling, knowing it's time for a change but unsure where or how to start? Therapy doesn’t have to be a daunting process. While change and vulnerability can be difficult, I make every effort to help you move toward your goals at a pace defined by you. Whether it's related to our relationships, career, self perceptions and/or how we fit into our world, life's challenges can propel us toward seeking help. Finding our path and achieving our goals are vital in obtaining happiness and satisfaction in life. I want to help you get there.
Hello! My name is Danielle. I am so glad you are considering beginning therapy and working with me. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, first-generation experiences, forming healthy relationships, or areas of personal growth, I will offer a compassionate presence where your experiences can be heard. Together, we can begin working towards positive changes in your life. I am a strengths-based, client-centered therapist. However, as there is no “one size fits all” approach to therapy, support will be tailored to empower you to make changes specific to your needs and goals.
By considering a therapist, you are taking a step towards improving your life, examining what needs to be changed and building upon what is already working. Life can get better and you have the power to change it. During difficult times, it is important to either develop healthy support systems or utilize the ones that we already have. Seeking therapy is one piece of a healthy support system. You are acknowledging that some aspects of your life may not be going well and need to be changed. Therapy can help you to put life in perspective.
Congratulations on taking the courageous step to begin therapy. As we all know, life can be challenging and demanding at times. This may lead us to feeling sad, angry, hopeless or confused. We may feel stuck and not know how to move forward; which can be a very lonely and scary place to be as well. However, you are not alone and healing is possible! My role as a therapist is to provide a safe place and offer warmth and empathy throughout this collaborative process, in order to help you in exploring your thoughts and feelings, as well as guide you in developing insight and identifying skills to achieve the thriving life you deserve.
Do you ever feel stuck or overwhelmed? Do you feel like everyone around you is progressing while you sit anxiously waiting for your life to finally start? Are you the one standing at the edge of a pool waiting to jump in but you’re too afraid? What if it’s too deep? What if the water is too cold? You’re not alone. Sometimes we carry negative patterns of thinking from our past that serve as roadblocks to deeper levels of self-awareness. I can help you navigate through the challenging moments in life, and together we can work to uncover what is holding you back from reaching your full potential.
Feeling like no one understands what you are going through and wondering where to turn? When dealing with life's struggles, no matter how big or small, we often wish we could find someone who understands, is supportive, takes the time to listen, and who will help create a safe and supportive environment and build a trusting relationship to help navigate through life's twists and turns.

Therapy doesn’t have to be a dreaded experience. With a kind heart and open mind, I strive to make therapy a comfortable place where you can explore the deepest insights about yourself with compassion and empathy.

Whether you are suffering unbearable panic attacks, struggling with depression, or having difficulty with transitions, I'm here to help. Let's go beyond the surface and help YOU learn about YOU.
Feeling down, have a lack of motivation, overwhelmed, feeling stuck, struggling to see the glass is half full and have a difficult time understanding your feelings or emotions? Many individuals, including myself, have had these feelings. This can be very unsettling, confusing and just generally uncomfortable. Therapy can help you better understand yourself, your feelings, past traumas, obstacles and help achieve goals that you have.
"As therapists, we are public servants. We have devoted our lives to making something from nothing, to find complex solutions to complex problems. To care and hold space in the face of disaster, trauma and fear. To give assurance and strength and help others rise." - Kirsten Haney LMFT

My clients are facing a myriad of concerns - school refusal, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, substance use, social struggles, disordered eating, behavioral issues, just to name a few. One in thing is common is that they are all hurting,
