About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Addictions Specialist licensed in Pennsylvania with over 16 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief and loss issues, substance use issues, adjustment to different phases of life, self-esteem and relationship issues . I also helped many people who are experiencing uncomfortable change in their lives.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, mindfulness and motivational interviewing. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I feel confident in Danielles approach towards my feelings and issues. She takes the time to understand what ive said, and responds with empathy and support. Its comforting to feel heard, and danielle helps with that.

Danielle has helped me get through a lot this past year. She not only helped me figure out ways to cope and work through my emotions, but also take a step back and enjoy the positives.

Written by J.E. on Oct 24, 2020 after counseling with Danielle for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

It’s been a while since I did any therapy counseling and I’m glad I started again. Danielle is very helpful and has been a great listener and has also challenged me with important questions. It’s been a couple months but I’ve started to feel more relaxed. My issues are still there, but I feel like they’re a bit more manageable. Sometimes you just need someone to hear you out, and maybe see the situation from a different point of view. I really appreciate Danielle’s help.

Written by C.O. on Jul 27, 2020 after counseling with Danielle for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

After a couple missed marks with counselors on BetterHelp I decided to try one more time. Danielle’s schedule is extremely flexible and I’m seeing a huge difference in my mindset and outlook since speaking with her. Danielle is not judge mental, and is great at getting me to see the other side of things.

I was feeling worthless and on a terrible downward cycle but my counselor helped and is still helping me to change how I think, how I feel about myself, and give me practical tips to prevent this from happening again.
