About me

I am licensed in New York, Florida, and Michigan with over 25 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach with individuals of all ages. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting stress, and career challenges. I have also helped many people who have experienced family and generational trauma as well as grief and loss.

My counseling style is warm, reflective, and encouraging. I believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion, and openness. I believe everyone is doing the best they can. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, rational-emotive, dialectical behavior therapy with a blend of mindfulness, energy psychology (tapping and EFT), and psycho-education. I will tailor our time together and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to step forward and seek help for a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I LOVE Danielle, forever so grateful

Written on Feb 02, 2023 after therapy with Danielle for 2 years on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, and self esteem

Danielle is absolutely incredible. From the very beginning of our sessions, she offered endless kindness, warmth and understanding, providing an environment where I felt comfortable to fully open up.
By showing me how it felt to be validated, she taught me to give myself the validation I needed. Our sessions allowed me to gain confidence in who I am and I am now ready and willing to live my life for me, with gratitude, compassion and a very full heart.
Thank you for everything, Danielle! It’s been so great working with you

Danielle is an incredible therapist, very caring and comforting and has helped me implement useful ways of adjusting my thinking. She is such a lovely person and has been a great help to me through challenging times. I couldn’t recommend her more.

I’ve been working with Danielle for close to a year now. I am so grateful I have found her on this platform. She has been a huge support in my life and has been the one therapist I’ve been able to connect with. She’s so helpful, friendly, and understanding. Highly recommend working with Danielle.

I have worked with Danielle for a few months this year, and a few months in 2021. Each time I sign up, I am grateful to see that she is still my therapist. She is wise and understanding, and always hears me. She has helped me work through childhood trauma, relationship difficulties, and anxiety/depression. Having a calm, positive demeaner, she has been supportive of my journey and offers wise advice with new perspectives.

It was extremely difficult for me to even sign up for therapy but Danielle made the process so comforting and transformative, I couldn't have imagined how much I would gain from working with her. She always listens fully and responds thoughtfully, she really has made a huge difference in my healing journey. She pays attention to the exercises/strategies that seem to work best for me and if we try something I don't respond well to, she makes an effort to try something different which I really appreciate. Every session with her is helpful and I would recommend her to anyone!
