About me

I am a clinical social worker as well as a clinical addiction counselor, licensed in Kansas, with almost 30 years of experience working as a therapist. I also have worked in substance abuse treatment facilities, mental health centers, an in-patient psychiatric treatment center, a primary care clinic, and 2 different hospices. There are not too many situations that I have not helped clients with in some way. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, ADHD, and end-of-life issues (both patients and families with loved ones who are experiencing serious illness). I have also helped many people who have experienced various kinds of trauma or abuse.

My counseling style is laid-back, caring, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and other traditional “talk” therapies, as well as more brain-based therapies such as EMDR & somatic approaches. We will work together to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek support 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!

Danielle is a phenomenal therapist! She held space for me in a way that very few have done and I am so grateful for her compassion and patience. She has helped me create healthier relationships and find a healthier me. She encouraged me to be who I want to be and gave me resources to get there. Thank you, Danielle!

I have been in therapy with Danielle almost a year now. I don’t know what I would have done without her! She is flexible, makes time for me in the evenings after work. She went above and beyond during a crisis moment and assisted me in safe decisions and stayed on the phone with me until I was safe. I have recommended her to friends and family. I have told all my doctors about Better Help.

The Better Help app platform is very easy to use but i found it would be beneficial to have a contact to speak with about the financial and therapy choices. Making the sometimes toughest part of committing to therapy a lot more personalized than an email.
Thank you for this opportunity and for all your help. Danielle is a crucial employee for you! Please consider her for recognition for her exemplary service!!
