About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been practicing in Pennsylvania for the last 15 years! I have worked with many clients over the years and specialize in treating individuals with depression, anxiety, stress issues, aging issues, and life stressors! I also work as a hospice social worker and run a grief and loss support group!

My counseling style is compassionate, warm, and I believe in treating everyone with respect! I tend to use several approaches while working with individuals, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, and other positive approaches. I believe that every individual has the ability to make changes and their lives and I aim to empower them to meet those goals!

Therapy can be a big step for individuals and change can be scary, but the end results are very rewarding!

Please message me regarding scheduling for live chats, video and phone sessions, so that the schedule works for both of us!

I look forward to working with you and helping you to live the life that you deserve!

I am so thankful I met Danielle. She is kind, compassionate, and really listens to me. She has gone out of her way to send me plenty of resources that have helped me. She carefully makes suggestions and chooses resources that are directly related to my needs, not just general ways to deal with anxiety. She responds quickly to any questions or concerns.

As someone new to counseling in general, I love my sessions with Danielle. She does a wonderful job supplying tools for me to use outside our live sessions so that I can explore on my own schedule. She is an active listener during our live sessions asks great questions to prompt our talks!

Danielle is a smart, compassionate, insightful and caring therapist. She is friendly and kind and she really listens. She makes herself available beyond what I would have expected and always offers not only things to think about but actual suggestions for things that I can do right now to work on my goals. She offers support when I need it and goes above and beyond anything I have ever experienced with any other therapist. I feel very fortunate to have been matched with Danielle!

To say it all in a few words, I didn't know what a good therapist was like until we started our sessions together. She is fun, asks the right questions, engaging, and everything else you'd want from a therapist. Highly recommend her services!

Danielle has a knack for tuning into the main triggers of the issue and confronting it or finding new ways to address them and how to manage the stress/anxiety from whatever that may be! I appreciate that about her!

Danielle has been great so far, we haven't been talking long but from what we have it's been a great experience!

Written by K.A. on Mar 10, 2021 after therapy with Danielle for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

I have just started BetterHelp not that long ago and so far she has been amazing help. It’s always good to have someone I can message for advice when I need it. She has been a great support and I’m excited to get the help I need through her.

Written by K.A. on Feb 27, 2021 after therapy with Danielle for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and adhd

Though I have only been working with Danielle for two weeks now - I can already see and feel a difference in my well-being. She listens without judgment or bias and provides great worksheets and journal prompts for me to work on by myself. I am an introvert and have difficulty letting people know when I am suffering and through the worksheets and journal prompts I am able to express myself in ways I didn’t think possible. I look forward to continuing our therapist / client relationship together !!

Written by K.A. on Oct 27, 2020 after therapy with Danielle for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Danielle has been great. We do video conferences weekly, but I also like to send a message when feeling something intensely between sessions and she replies with helpful advice and sometimes pertinent readings.

Work with me!
