About me

My name is Danielle Poehlman and I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida. Many of my family members have suffered from addiction, mental illness and trauma. After losing two older siblings under complicated drug and mental health related circumstances, I decided to become a therapist. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Florida International University with a bachelor's degree in psychology, and obtaining a master's degree in mental health counseling from Capella University, this goal was finally achieved.

Through my own personal growth and educational journey, I have implemented a variety of modalities to facilitate the wholistic healing of mind, body and spirit. I am a Certified Reiki Master with over 20 years of hands-on experience. I am knowledgeable on the concept of Highly Sensitive Persons or HSPs, (also known as Empaths), as I have found a large number of clients can be assisted profoundly with just simple education and practical coping strategies.

My counseling style is motivational and strengths-based. My goal is to utilize profound understanding and my own empathic skills as supplements to psychotherapy in order to assist in the healing process. Through rapport and trust, we will work as a team to tailor treatment plans and therapeutic dialog to suit individual needs. I have assisted clients from a multitude of backgrounds and issues, including addiction, anxiety, grief/loss, abuse, trauma, depression, bipolar disorder, relationship issues (kink-friendly) and more. These issues do not discriminate. Those that appear the strongest often struggle the most. Those that appear joyful sometimes reach the depths of despair. There is no shame in asking for help; it is, in fact, one of the most courageous decisions you will ever make. Please reach out.

I’ve adored working with her. She understands when I explain that certain methods don’t work for me or that I need other methods. She works with me to make sure that I get out what needs to get out. I love working with her!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with Danielle. She is comforting to talk to and very knowledgeable. She offers wonderful advice that I am able to use in my day to day life and the worksheets are really helpful. Would absolutely recommend her.

I absolutely love Danielle as my therapist. She responds to any message promptly, is available very often for video chat and is so kind. She listens to everything you have to say before responding and always makes you feel like what you have to say matters. Would highly recommend!
