About Me

Welcome to the BetterHelp community! My name is Danielle Butler. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in North Carolina. I have been providing therapeutic and clinical services for a wide variety of issues and populations for almost 20 years. I graduated from Fordham University in 2002 with a Master in Social Work with a specialty in children and families. Throughout my clinical career, I have provided therapy in a variety of settings, including residential treatment facilities, day treatment centers, private nonprofits, homeless serving agencies as well as the in-home setting.

I would describe my approach as goal oriented, strengths based, and client centered. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). These modalities are hands-on, practical approaches to problem-solving. CBT treatment usually involves efforts to change thinking patterns and or behaviors. The goals are to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind difficult situations, and so change the way they feel. This helps people identify faulty or unhelpful ways of thinking and learn better ways of coping with life's full variety of stressors. SFBT places focus on a person's present and future circumstances and goals rather than past experiences. In this goal-oriented therapy, the symptoms or issues bringing a person to therapy are typically not targeted. MI is a is a directive, client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavior change by helping clients to explore and resolve ambivalence.

Danielle is amazing! She's helping me grapple with incredibly difficult challenges in one of my most important relationships. She listens well, synthesizes my scattered thoughts & feelings, and offers helpful tools, activities & resources to work on outside of our sessions. Danielle provides honest feedback and creates a safe space. I can feel that she genuinely cares.
