Danielle Rich


About Me

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in the state of Vermont. I have six years of experience working as a therapist and social worker in NYC, CT and VT. I have worked with clients with a wide range of difficulties and from many different backgrounds and cultures. I have worked in various settings including homeless outreach with the NYC transit system, foster care, private rehabilitation centers, inpatient psychiatric units and in a correctional facility. Many of the individuals I worked with in each of these settings have experienced a traumatic life event or have been an abuse survivor.

My counseling style is compassionate and solution-focused. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and empathy, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines a number of different modalities including, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), humanistic, psychodynamic and dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), because every client is different . I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I also approach my work through a trauma-informed lens.

It takes courage to seek counseling and to make the commitment to living a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

Remember, progress is never linear, take steps at your own pace and choose your own path!

Danielle is fantastic. She’s patient and understanding and listens very carefully to any and all discussion topics. She gave me homework on a number of occasions that included a handful of eye opening exercises. She’s very encouraging and down to earth. I definitely moved into a more positive headspace while seeing her!
