Danae was very helpful in giving me information in both verbal and written forms to improve my strategies and work toward my goals.
She is very attentive and is good about staying on track during discussions.
I would likely recommend Danae as she is great at listening and reminding of my goals with therapy. Thank you Better Help.
Danae is always to empathetic when discussing situations to her. She’s given great advice when appropriate and is such a great listener!
Dance has been a wonderful counselor so far! She takes the time to listen and offers great resources to look into between our sessions. As someone who has never had counseling I feel like this experience has made the fear of starting therapy much easier.
Danae is empathetic and supportive. She listens to my concerns and finds common threads and themes that I miss.
I am so thankful for Danae! I came into this counseling not knowing what to expect and not confident that id get what I felt I needed. And so far Danae has been such an amazing help for me! I am in a better place than I was when I first started counseling with her, and I know I still have a ways to go. But because of Danae I have hope that I can overcome this mess in my life right now. The tools she has given me are so helpful, and the way she responds to me is exactly what I need! I wish I would have found Danae a lot sooner than I did but I am do thankful I have her as my counselor now.
Danae is really helpful, you can tell she genuinely cares about your issues and is there with you every step of the way. I was skeptical about using this platform, but after working with Danae I will continue using this platform.
Really appreciate Danae’s caring approach and clear communication. So glad that I get to work with her!
I can be pretty difficult. Danae offers advice when appropriate, has made helpful suggestions, and always responds without delay or judgement.
I went through 4 (non-BetterHelp) therapists before I found Danae. Danae was the first one who actually seemed to know what she was doing. I'm very glad to have found her.
Danae has been amazing. Her input has been thoughtful and constructive.
Danae has been a rock to me! I having her to talk to is a blessing and just knowing I can lean on her expertise is encouraging. Would 100% recommend her counseling. Thank you, Danae!
Danae listens with compassion and without judgement, and offers questions that help me think about who I am and how I can move forward.
I tried several counselors before I found Danae Mutchelknaus and have been very happy with her professionalism as well as her input. I have recommended her and BetterHelp to others.
She has helped me so much! I look forward to talking with her every week. My experience with her has been life changing!
It's only been a couple of weeks but I feel I am on the right track to making progress. Danae listens and makes everything very simple to understand.
Danae has been a true blessing. She has helped me tremendously and although she challenges me to dig deeper, she has helped me not only become a better person for the world but I truly like who I am becoming.
Danae is the best counselor I have had. Her support is great. She offers so much and does it in such a compassionate way. We are able to work together with other media she sends me which I am finding extremely helpful.
Danae has always replied to me in a timely manner. She is always very willing to listen. If I don’t have time to message her or haven’t in a couple days or weeks she always reaches out to me to make sure I am doing good and to let me know she is here to help when I need. She is a great fit.
At times my mind feels hectic, but after sharing my thoughts with Danae, she has a simple and clear way of explaining things where I can fully understand and ways to improve my thinking. So far it’s been a helpful experience.
Danae is great to work with. She is very professional and has given me some great tools.
I feel like I have a personal cheerleader. Not only does she help me through difficult times, she helps me celebrate the accomplishments, both big and small.
She was incredibly kind and patient. I am surprised with how understanding she is and that she seems to be someone who really wants to help you, (not just for a paycheck). I think she is a very smart person and is a great counselor.
It's so helpful to have someone to talk to!
From one mental health professional to another, you're good at what you do. Thank you.
Danae has been very helpful and informative in our messages, they've helped me come to understand myself and my relationship more objectively. I couldn't recommend them enough.
Best therapist I have ever had, Danae truly listens and works with you by offering a wide variety of ways to self-improve.
Danae's compassion and understanding of the conditions I'm experiencing shows to me she is highly competent and I've made strides towards better mental health because of her
Danae feels like my oldest friend and I've only been talking to her for a couple weeks. She is intuitive and so very much supportive. I'm so thankful for her.
I haven’t been participating for long but so far I enjoy working with Danae. I feel that she shows me a variety of ways to think and how to make realizations on my own.
Danae is an awesome counselor. She listens to me, tries to understand where I come from, and she has been helping me a lot. Thank you!

Danae is a thorough listener and understands trauma. I was very impressed with her expertise.
I get tips and great ideas for coping skills, she also seems genuine about what I have going on in my life. Thank you!
She really listens to me and gives great advice and resources to reference.
Competent, capable, and very genuine. She is human as well as a counselor. This makes it easy to connect, trust, and share. She has an easy way of communicating that allows you to feel safe. She also makes sure when you are absent to long, that you know she is there.
Denae is easy to talk to and good at reflecting. She is good at making you look deeper into your struggles to find and get a handle on the root of the problem each time. Really awesome to have a listening ear from the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Danae is very kind and straightforward and offers clear guidance towards next steps or new avenues of thought.
Great counselor, listens (reads) offers advice gets you thinking in a positive light. Also points out things you may think are small but could be the root of the issue. Takes time to responds on the weekend couldn’t ask for more.
She has been nothing but extremely helpful and she’s so friendly and very understanding! She has given me so much good advice and guidance.
Danae has been a wonderful help. She is insightful and really listens/reads my messages. I will definitely return to seek out her help again when I need it. Thank you Danae!
Danae has done a fantastic job of taking my thoughts and worries and laying them out so that I can understand myself better, and therefor improve my overall well being. She is very good at talking through strategies and options! I would highly recommend her for anyone seeking help for a similar issue to mine!
I appreciate the fact that Danae takes the time to respond to me on the weekends. I know that she is human too and needs breaks, but it makes me feel as though she really cares. It’s wonderful to know that she will answer no matter what.
I’ve been working with Danae for about 3 weeks is all. But I find her to be very helpful already. She responds promptly, gives good feedback, and forwards helpful information.
Danae is very kind. She has been great to talk to, she is understanding and gives me different opinions to try to work through my problems. Danae also responds quickly and thoroughly to my posts.
Danae M. is a very professional counselor. She listens and is intuitive. She genuinely cares about people. She has provided me with wonderful pieces of information to research and reflect on. She asks appropriate questions and contributes appropriately to conversations. She is helpful and I feel as though I am receiving appropriate care. Thanks, Danae!
I have had problems with counselors in the past were they treat me like a number and not as a human being. But Danae has time and time again shown me that she really does care. She works hard to help people in need. No matter what your situation is she will not judge you at all.
Danae does an amazing job with giving me honest and professional advice and guidance. I feel like I am making huge progress by getting my priorities straight and working on things little by little. It felt like a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can finally breathe and enjoy life more.
Danae responds to each message I send in full, making me feel like I have her full attention. She has offered me support and guidance and tools to help myself, and I’ve only been working with her a short time. She is quick to respond and thorough in her responses, offering me way more time and advice for my money than any counselor I’ve sat in an office with.
She has been a great help so far and I am looking forward to continuing working with her.
