Dr. Danielle Dance

Psychologist

About Me

Greetings! I have been a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Florida for six years and providing psychological services for more than 15. My first experience with psychology was in high school. I remember being fascinated by the mind, psychological research, and the ways people can be similar and different at the same time. Initially, I believed that I was made for analysis and assessment. Still, During my time at Nova Southeastern University, I was encouraged to do initial practicum work in an outpatient addictions program. As it turns out, I much enjoyed the experience and providing therapeutic services. I continued involvement in both areas. As someone who enjoys learning, this initial experience broadened my mind to the many possible psychology areas and the benefits therapeutic services offer. During the remainder of my doctorate work, I provided services to individuals seeking motivation for change, coping with depression, experiencing anxiety, personality difficulties, or struggling with co-occurring addiction-related concerns. My studies further allowed me to work with individuals experiencing significant financial distress, homelessness, legal interests, and neurological deficits. I have provided services at inpatient, outpatient, community mental health, and outreach settings.

My approach to treatment can best is eclectic, holistic, and individualized. Having been trained in Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialect Behavioral Therapy, I can offer guidance from multiple theoretical frameworks. Although it can be initially uncomfortable to speak with a stranger about significant personal concerns, my goal is to provide an environment that is friendly, judgment-free, open-minded, empathetic, and feels like you are talking to a friend. I believe that together we can work towards meeting your goals and improving the way you feel. Please know, change takes time, and I will be there to assist you in problem-solving, identifying the issues impacting your quality of life, and developing tools to overcome difficulties.

I’ve gone through something like 10 therapists and never felt a good connection to any of them. Discussions with Doc immediately felt comfortable and respectful. Prior to finding doc, I was thinking of giving up therapy all together. I’m so glad I didn’t because now I look forward to our sessions together.

Hands down the best therapist! She listens and let’s me express myself. She is attentive and you can tell she cares a lot. It’s so easy to talk to her and open up to her.

Dr. Dance is SO wonderful.
She really takes the time to listen to me and responds with empathy and uses her own experiences to share tools and insight. We had an almost instant connection and our chemistry makes an incredible therapy experience for me… I feel like I’m talking to a friend I’ve known my whole life.

I've only had two sessions with Dr. Dance thus far, but she seems terrific -- very empathetic, and intelligent.

Having been in therapy with Danie has been as big of a life changing experience as finding out I had ADHD in the first place, every week is a new "aha" moment.
She's a great, active listener, her knowledge is wide and deep in all ADHD topics (and not only, she's a bit of a walking encyclopedia) and shares with me not only what she knows but her thinking process as well, which is the spark that enlightens the sole knowledge as she's incredibly smart, so the mind paths she articulates are deep enough that they're able to stay put in my mind, simple enough for me to understand.
Every session is rich in verbalizing feelings and thoughts, every though situation I'm facing in my life I've begun to apply the rule "what would Danie say" as a mind dialogue that helps me unlock entanglements to reach kinder, smarter reactions quicker, to both me and others, and helping me see my slightly different and messier brain as not too bad after all. Thanks for everything, Doc!

I don't know what I would do without Dr. Dance's guidance and support. I wish I could spend every day talking with her, and with the option of messaging I know I will never feel alone or lost because she will be there to guide me when I need it! Thank you!

Dr. Dance is phenomenal. In the short time I've been doing sessions with her, I've felt so much better about myself and my mental health. She listens, she understands, she actually cares and she's real. Hard to find these days.

Dr.Dance has helped me understand, explore, and challenge the way I feel towards my life and relationships. She is very validating, and I am better able to deal with distressing situations because of the work we have done together. She is honest, open minded, and funny - a refreshing personality :)

Danie is just what I wanted and needed in a counsellor. She totally gets me and helps me feel a little less crazy. She is very knowledgeable and empathetic of my needs. Big fan!

Dr. Dance has been so kind and helpful. I never feel any judgment nor do I feel self-conscious talking about personal issues. It's been a really wonderful experience.

Written by R.A. on Feb 08, 2021 after therapy with Danielle for 2 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I have never had help of this sort, and I was skeptical in the beginning. But Dr. Dance is helping me understand myself and my the reason behind my behavior more, this is helping me improve in the areas I'd like.

Dr. Danielle has been such a huge support for me as I walk the path of recuperating from extreme stress and anxiety. She has been a strong source of motivation, encouraging me to be strong, and to make the better decisions. Her constant, unbiased approach to provide me the warmth and comfort I needed is truly appreciated. I would not have had the peace of mind today had it not been for her guidance. I am full of gratitude to you, Dr. Danielle.

Dr. Dance is one of the few good people in the world. All she’s shown me was support, understanding, no judgement and a whole lot of compassion. I’ve grown a lot with her and I still have more growing to do. We have a great banter and interesting conversations. I wouldn’t want anyone else helping me!
