Hi! I'm Danielle Peters, MFT, but you can call me Nell. I'm excited about working together with you to get through whatever might be holding you back from having the life you want. I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist and have eleven years experience working both for the community and in the private sector in northern California. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, addictions, codependence, eating disorders, cutting, and trauma. I have also helped people to cope with problematic relationships, parenting issues, grief/loss and life transitions. I also work with people struggling with body image, weight loss, domestic violence and women's issues. I have a special place in my heart for working with families of children with special needs.
I enjoy helping people find happiness and wholeness through making improvements in their lives. While I believe that each person deserves an individualized treatment plan, I mostly work from a cognitive behavioral standpoint which means that along with encouraging better self care and identifying the historical causes of the problem I will help you identify and change the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are perpetuating your struggles. I have a very warm, supportive and non-judgmental approach that will give you the safe space you need to achieve your goals. I understand how hard it can be to reach out for help, so I applaud you for taking this first step, and would love to support you in this journey.
I look forward to working with you and learning about you!

Danielle has, and continues to, help me through some really difficult things. She is the reason I am where I am today, without her I would be in a much worse place

After a run of counselor's that didn't work for me, so glad I found Danielle. Great listener and very pragmatic.

Danielle is a great therapist that really listens to me and helps me see my problems from a different, neutral perspective. She really sees the core cause of a lot of things and gives me practical tips on how to manage my thoughts better.
