I am a individual and family therapist licensed in Illinois with over 5 years of experience working as a psychotherapist in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I have specialized experience working in residential based treatment providing long term care-treatment as well as short term crisis outpatient-field work. I have worked with clients with a range of concerns and diagnoses including depression, anxiety, parenting problems, abandonment issues, grief and loss, trauma, mood disorders, etc.
As a child, I always wanted to pursue a career where I could assist with an individual’s growth, creativity and happiness. I learned at a young age the struggles that life can bring, not only through the inevitable, but also through situational traumas that we at times have to face and endure. Being an active member in the clinical field of helping professionals, I have certainly learned the importance of patience, empathy and peace. Identifying and securing ones’ purpose in life, creates the true masterpiece of one’s story. My goal is to assist you in your journey to self-actualization.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I meet my clients where they are using therapeutic approaches that will better meet their needs. I often use client centered, CBT, DBT and mindfulness therapeutic approaches in my practice.
Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, grief, anxiety, or major life changes? There comes a time when help is wanted and needed from a certified professional to cope with many of life’s challenges. I’m a licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I’m here to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.

Daffaney is a pro listener. I have trouble focusing on subjects sometimes and Daffaney is excellent with helping keep me on track with my ideas. She is good at allowing me to find my own way to the solution.
Great at what she does, really makes you feel comfortable. She helps keep the sessions moving and asked questions that really get you thinking
Mindful that people have to process things in their own way. She offered suggestions and activities that helped me understand “me”. I grateful for her expertise and her active listening skills
She’s so supportive and kind. And gives me great ways to practice self awareness and self care through the week.
Daffaney is a great therapist, she listens and offers great advice and I feel comfortable and safe when talking to her about my trama.
Daffaney is impressive with her preparation
I've had bad experiences with therapists in the past, but Daffaney has been so kind, very understanding, and overall made me view seeking help in another light that was never shown to be before I had her. 100% recommend and I don't regret it!
Daffaney is so great. She gets my humor and knows just what to say to make me feel better and makes me think deeper about myself.
She listens to & encourages me to be my best me
She supports me, understands my feelings and gives me worksheets to try to help me move forward and understanding my feelings.
literally just recommended this to a friend
She is very professional and supportive.
I think Daffaney is a great counselor. I like her approach and her support when we do our one on one sessions. I feel like I have a friend to talk to when I need it most.
She’s a great therapist
Daffaney is awesome. She is very responsive, a great listener and knows exactly when to step in. She has been so helpful with my anxiety and it has only been a month. Her availability is flexible. I had a choice to do live chats which makes you feel like you can openly share your thoughts without seeing the person. Some people would feel more comfortable with this who has anxiety. I wished I had found her long before now.
Daffaney is a wonderful therapist!
Caring, attentive, and has proper skills to provide good therapy.
She is awesome and I think she is capable of empathy and challenges me to think in a different way about myself
