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.

She is very patient and understands the importance of being able to communicate with her

Written on Feb 22, 2024 after therapy with DANIELLE for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

i’ve gone through so many therapists in the last few years, yet I always felt it was missing an element of empathy and genuine understanding. as a person with adhd, and complex ptsd i needed somebody who understood that i like for space to be held for me as i heal and process, not necessarily be given advice, tasks and practices. Doc Dance, i finally know what it feels like to be understood by your therapist. she’s a generous listener, always felt the sense of understanding, empathy & support during our sessions. Her sharing of relevant and valuable life experience as well as gentle communication of liberating truths about my situation (regardless if they may be hard to say or hear) has really helped me make strides in my growth and self acceptance.

very grateful to have found her on here, truly a one of a kind person ✨

Dr. Dance has been great, her approach gives a comfort that I haven't had with a previous therapist. Sessions with her feel like a conversation even on the more difficult topics. But I leave each session feeling better and with something to takeaway that continues to help.

I strongly recommend Dr Dance. She has a magnificent way of understanding what I'm trying to convey when I have no idea how to myself. I'm so glad we connected through this app

Dr. D is fabulous, by far the best mental health care I've ever had. I've always had issues with psychologists and Dr. D isn't just another blazer, she's a whole person who comes from understanding as and real world experience. I've had a habit of frustrating my mental health team in the past and Dr. D absolutely gets me. She can follow me and help with my complex traumas. We have established patterns over the last year and I have a great roadmap of what I can expect. I feel confident with Dr. D on my side.

Dr. Dance is a really good therapist. Good listener, respectful of the speed we need to go. She is a no nonsense therapist, and she make me feel really heard and understood. I feel I can really confide in her, and never feel judged.
I am really lucky to have her in my life
