Danielle Allen

LCSW

About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both Pennsylvania and Maine and have been working with clients struggling with mental health issues for over 16 years! I have worked with many different populations over the years and specialize in treating individuals with depression, anxiety, stress issues, aging issues, and other life changes! I also have worked as a hospice social worker and have run grief and loss, support groups!

My counseling style is compassionate and 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 problem-solving 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!

I offer video, phone, and live chat as options for our sessions and I am able to be flexible to meet the hours that you need for your busy schedule!

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

Written on Nov 15, 2022 after therapy with Danielle for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

I had a therapist a few years ago that was amazing & I never thought anyone else would be as good as her. I was wrong! Danielle Allen has exceeded my expectations & then some. Even though we only message through the app I feel like I can tell her anything and she knows me pretty well. I would like to be able to talk on the phone or video chat, but I understand her time constrictions. She has helped me so much over the past few months I don’t even know how to thank her enough.

Danielle keeps me going on some of my hardest days. When I feel like I'm lost, she helps me find myself again.

Written on Oct 19, 2022 after therapy with Danielle for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Danielle is warm and compassionate. She provided me with a judgment free space to talk through some things that i have carried around with me for many years. She has helped me realize my worth, and supported me through difficult dilemmas in my life. She also provided me with weekly thought provoking resources and journal prompts tuned to topics that I am looking to work on. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who is working on themselves, and looking yo use therapy as a tool to self betterment and social betterment.

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!

Written on Jun 02, 2021 after therapy with Danielle for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

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!

Written on Apr 21, 2021 after therapy with Danielle for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

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 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 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 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!
