We work with women in their 20s, 30s, & 40s, dealing with anxiety, relationship uncertainty, & life transitions.
Do you constantly feel on edge, overwhelmed or anticipate future events with worry and dread? Do racing, ruminating thoughts impact your ability to concentrate on tasks, manage stress or engage socially? Living with anxiety can be a distressing, frustrating and sometimes frightening experience. You may be preoccupied by "what if" questions about the future that you can't control, causing your thoughts to spiral and fuel more distressing emotions and physical symptoms. The ongoing, looping cycle of anxiety can impact all aspects of your life, including work performance and your relationships.

From learning to handle everyday stressors to restoring self-identity post-trauma, Danielle would like to assist teen girls and women in their mental and emotional development.
Knowing that no two individuals experience life in the same manner, Danielle has an innate ability to assess needs and empathically identify person-centered solutions that cater to the internal struggle and environmental effect on every person. She utilizes a CBT-DBT blend of techniques such as identifying cognitive distortions, journaling, cognitive restructuring and mindfulness as well as increasing interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance. Danielle works to foster resilience by aiding clients in revisiting what they’ve survived, being mindful of the here and now while preparing them to thrive.

I specialize in helping people recover from anxiety. I also work with women who suffer from depression, trauma, and complex relationship problems of all kinds. Too often, worries and fears get the best of us and control our decisions. Instead of living the life we want, we end up making choices in life and in relationships that are rooted in self-doubt, anxiety, and worry. I provide a safe, empathetic, nonjudgmental space in which we work together to reduce fears and develop new, authentic ways of engaging in relationships.

The Self Inside is a space for black women to heal from family and generational trauma. In the black community, our family is everything to us. While we are taught to always be there for our family, we are rarely taught what to do if our family is not supportive or even toxic to our wellbeing. The Self Inside is here to support black women as they discover who they are aside from who they thought they needed to be within their family.

My specialty is working women in many capacities.
Focusing on issues ranging from anxiety and depression, to relationship issues and phase of life adjustments, I work with clients to set goals surrounding understanding how past events impact current realities. As a primarily Person Centered therapist, I believe that no two people experience any situation alike. It is my job to take the time to get to know my clients and their realities and sit in the mud with them as a support to get to their desired space. Clients are the experts of their own lives and change only happens when individuals have the dedication and motivation to do things differently.

My life purpose is to break generational curses and make mental health a household conversation. Being a woman of color, mental health has not always been an assessable conversation. In the black community, we are always told to be strong, get over things quickly, and keep looking forward. Unfortunately, that meant we spent years overlooking normal human emotions that caused us to develop bad and unhealthy habits and relationships as an adult. Now, being a mental health professional and therapist, I am destined to make a difference, make mental health an enjoyable conversation, and continue to help bridge the gap.

Many women find themselves struggling in their relationships with others and themselves. You may find yourself stuck in the same dating or relationship patterns that leave you feeling disconnected and unsatisfied. As a result, you may struggle to feel fully present in your life or feel like you’re repeating past patterns in your dating life, relationships, and daily life. You may start to second guess yourself and wonder, "Am I ever going to figure this out?"

I have extensive experience working with male and female survivors of child sexual abuse as well as sex offender specific treatment.
Do you ever feel like the support of your family and friends is not enough? You don't have to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder to benefit from therapy. Many people turn to therapy for help with everyday life issues: relationship problems, anxiety, and self-doubt. Others seek therapy during difficult times such as sexual abuse and grief. In order to reap the benefits of therapy it's important that you choose the right therapist- someone you can trust, who makes you feel valued with the experience to help you overcome emotional challenges and make changes for the better in your life.

A woman of multi-ethnic heritage, my diverse professional and cultural background give me a unique understanding of the importance of culture and identity in one's life.
I enjoy helping clients identify their unique strengths and gifts and develop the skills to lead a happier and more fulfilling life. Are you having difficulty with personal and/or professional relationships? Maybe you've achieved a great deal professionally or financially but are still dissatisfied with your life? Are you struggling with identity issues? Do you find yourself feeling emotional for no reason? Unsure about the path your life has taken? Perhaps you are struggling with parenting issues and not feeling up to the task. I have helped many clients overcome the above and other issues over the years.

The second group is for women 50 and older, focus on living, aging and dying.
We often find ourselves unable to move forward due to the enormity of the situations that are presented to us. We may feel stuck, tired, and at times, hopeless. So we armour ourselves to face the world. This armouring occurs in the form of addictions such as overeating; using drugs and alcohol; isolating and repeating patterns of toxic relationships. As a result our hearts become numb. We move through life with an armored exterior, fearful of experiencing our feelings and emotions. By creating a safe environment, I help unlock and release pain.

Everyone feels anxiety, depression, or other difficult feelings at different points in their life. When painful feelings are persistent and life begins to feel difficult and unmanageable in a more ongoing way that is the time to consider going to therapy. For the last 20 years, I have helped adult men and women and teens and their parents improve their mood, reduce stress, increase self confidence, cultivate satisfying relationships, and make lasting changes in their lives. I work hard to provide a climate where you can feel safe and understood so you can begin to explore your thoughts and feelings.
