As a therapist and storyteller, I strongly believe that we are all the experts of our own stories. That being said, it can feel like someone else has taken up the pen during times of stress or emotional upheaval. Our stories aren’t linear and they don't exist in a vacuum; systems of power, privilege, and oppression, relationships, intersecting identities, and cultural values & norm can greatly affect the way in which we move through the world. My goal is to help you pick the pen back up, create a safe space for you to look at your experiences, and decide what role they will continue to play in your story.

I don't have an ideal client as I believe everyone is unique and I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are invested in changing patterns and moving into the future with a more positive outlook on themselves and how they impact others. I like to challenge and offer alternatives while also listening to what has worked and build on the positives.

You may feel increasingly more anxious, emotional, or depressed. Life may even feel unmanageable. You might find yourself trying to fill internal voids with external things, such as substances, food, sex, or relationships. Experiences from your past could leave you feeling stuck in your present. Change can be terrifying, and taking that first step may feel really scary.

If you resonate with the idea that you can get addicted to anything, we may be a great fit. I find that I connect well with individuals who tend to feel hijacked by their emotions and wish to maintain a greater sense of serenity. I am passionate about supporting clients in building self-trust. I see therapy as an uncovering and strengthening of your authentic self rather than a top-down analysis. I am thoughtful and trauma-informed in my pacing and approach toward the emotional distress you have experienced. I am specifically trained in EMDR for the treatment of PTSD and Motivational Interviewing for behavior change.

Danielle's overall work experience is in behavior medicine mainly addresses the health and mental health care needs of adults and children, often times involving substance abuse through a holistic approach, (or with the use of psychotropic medication when needed). I am also skilled in identifying maladaptive behaviors, which may inhibit a patient achieving optimal physical health, and implementing brief, focused interventions in decreasing or eradicating such behavior. In addition, I also use social and psychological evaluation techniques to promote physical health and wellness to underserved populations.

I believe the crux of treatment rests on the collaborative relationship between therapist and client. I use Psychodynamic (relational) , Humanistic, and Existential psychotherapies, as well as Bibliotherapy to guide others toward uncovering deeper insights into the root causes of their distressing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Informed by theories of attachment and current research in the neurobiology of Trauma and addictions, I honor the lived experience of each individual, bringing curiosity, humility, warmth, and humor to the therapeutic relationship.
