Through a proven program you will cultivate acceptance of your body, effective self-care and a life free of the shackles of diet culture.
You look in the mirror and feel disgusted. Multiple outfits are scattered on the floor, nothing fits right. You have gained weight again and it's hardly a surprise since the bingeing returned. The feeling of confidence at the beginning of your latest diet is replaced by the heaviness of another failure. You still believe that losing the weight once and for all will give you what you truly want – being liked and accepted. But years of dieting haven't actually changed your life for the better. As your desperation grows you start to wonder if a life without the self-hatred, food obsession and feeling out of control is possible for you.

I aim to help clients meet their therapeutic goals by drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), and person- centered lenses, with an emphasis on adapting to the needs of the individual.
I earned my Master of Arts and Master of Education in Mental Health Counseling from Columbia University and earned my Bachelor’s from Brandeis University. I completed my clinical graduate internship with Fordham University where I helped students of all backgrounds with a variety of challenges, ranging from career exploration, transitional stress, anxiety, to depression. As an Asian American and daughter of refugees, I hold an importance in shining light upon intersectional identities. I aim to bring space and awareness to identity exploration and approach my therapeutic work with a multicultural lens.

Hi I am Danielle! I see therapy as a path to self-discovery where you can cultivate self-compassion, self- acceptance , and a flexible mindset. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space for all individuals to understand their inner world more deeply. My approach is primarily rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy, but I also integrate elements of relational-psychodynamic therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy in order to help you to reach your therapeutic goals. I have particular experience working with college students who struggle with performance anxiety while navigating a world fixated on achievement.

I’ll help you strive for openness, acceptance , the possibility for failure and a willingness to be vulnerable.
We all experience stressful periods. Times of major life transitions disrupt our equilibrium and ability to cope effectively given new situations and circumstances. We can experience anxious or depressed moods, changes in our daily habits, feel overwhelmed or on the verge of panic. We may no longer enjoy the things we used to, the activities, tasks and friends we once held dear. We may notice changes in our sleeping and eating habits and even engage in reckless and dangerous behavior. Life’s path is rarely a straight one, our life's story seldom linear or what we expect and is almost always is complex.

I help couples using an ACT framework to increase connection and rebuild relationships.
Maybe you don’t feel like yourself and need some help finding a sense of balance in your life. Perhaps you and your partner are not on the same page and you both want help getting back on course. Therapy can help you. Suffering from emotional pain on your own is very difficult. It can feel scary and intimidating reaching out for help. Reaching out to a therapist is an important step towards healing, self-growth, and building resiliency. You have internal strengths such as wisdom and motivation. You are making a great choice looking for someone who can help you mobilize these strengths.

What creates change is mindfulness and acceptance .
Attention...what does it take to get our attention? Usually, it's something unfamiliar. I work with individuals who experience a "symptom," a grief, a depression, an anxiety, a life-threatening illness, a crisis in an important relationship; a time when you are asked to pause, to pay attention to your self and bring curiosity to your life. A symptom is an invitation to look at the story of your life and visit where you have felt alone and where you need to come home to yourself in order to make this issue transform and experience more fulfillment.

This self-understanding and self- acceptance is often hard to find alone.
As interactive, solution-focused therapists, our treatment approach aims to provide support and practical feedback as we help clients address current life challenges and long-standing issues. With compassion and understanding, we help individuals find resolution to a wide range of personal and/or family concerns, as well as psychological issues. We utilize an integration of DBT, CBT, and psychodynamic approaches as we help our clients develop constructive skills and coping strategies, as well as discover an understanding and acceptance of what underlies their struggles with emotions, stress, self-esteem, relationships, and communication.

My focus is to guide clients through life's challenging transitions- with greater acceptance and less struggle.
Our thoughts, beliefs and bodies reflect our emotional struggles. We often come to therapy when old ways of coping aren't working anymore- when we long for comfort, relief, or more authentic and deeper connections in our relationships. The whole person needs to be addressed in times of crisis, transition and loss. Healing is a word derived from the German hailjan- “to make whole.” I work with a holistic, acceptance -based and contemplative approach to psychotherapy. Practicing self-compassion and self- acceptance lead to less reactivity and more peaceful, integrated and intentional lives.

Sometimes when we feel things that are overwhelming and painful, our first thought is to blame ourselves and keep doing things the exact same way, praying for different results and hoping to become a different person. I provide a warm, safe, and open place so that clients can learn to both accept themselves as they are, and improve themselves into the person they always wanted to be. You can take control of your life in the way that you want. You are allowed to be who you are and feel how you feel, even while facing the stress and challenges of life. Together we can embrace self- acceptance and self-improvement at the same time.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment Therapy have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in White Plains will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
