About Me

What would it be like for you if you could wake up tomorrow and live the life you always wanted to live?

It can be hard to reach out and ask for help. Especially when life is stressful and overwhelming. So I want to do what I can to make this process of healing as user-friendly as possible. I do this with a counseling style that has been described as warm, blunt, and with a sense of humor. My clients and I often laugh together. I usually ask many simple questions, because I want to help people reach their own conclusions. I also tend to use a lot of analogies, because that often helps me understand concepts and ideas, so I figure that can also help my clients understand things as well. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I also feel that it is important that people know all of their options before they make decisions, so I try to be as honest and transparent as possible.

I believe that our past has a huge impact on how we act today. I specialize in working through how our past impacts us so that we can have a more successful future. To do this, I mainly draw from the therapy approach of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Using this technique, my clients find the best path to healing and growth in their lives.

When I'm working with someone, my ultimate goal is to give them enough tools so that I am essentially working myself out of a job!

I'm shocked to hear that some therapists don't respond very often. So I try to respond to messages as often as I can, which means that I try to respond once a day. Having said that, I don't have the ability to immediately respond to messages, and there may be times when it takes me up to 48 hours to respond. This means that if you need immediate assistance, a crisis call center or face to face counseling is more appropriate for you.

Because of other obligations things in my life, I have no availability for live sessions at this time. I can only do messaging.

I have done work ranging from psychiatric hospital work to in-person therapy work. I am now working in online therapy private practice for millennials and young adults. I like to spend my free time with my family, cooking, working out, or doing nerdy things like playing video games.

Are you ready to get started on a journey of happiness and healing?

Written by C.H. on Aug 01, 2020 after counseling with Danielle for 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, and career difficulties

Danielle always listens to what my concerns are, and helps me see them in a more helpful light. She is always there if I just need to vent, and responds quickly. I've tried a lot of different forms of therapy, but working with her has been by far the most helpful.

Danielle has been wonderful to work with and I feel I have gained a lot from our time together. She's helped me initiate changes in my life that I was struggling to make on my own and given me helpful tools in the process. She's well-versed in her field and offers an empathetic, yet practical perspective that allow you to understand yourself a little better.

Danielle has been great. She listens and gets right to the heart of things to address the underlying causes for what I am dealing with. She is freindly, respectful and smart. I have enjoyed my experience so far with Danielle.

Danielle is amazing with helping to confront my struggles, whether they are frequent problems or something completely new. She is always there to remind me that what I am feeling is valid and that I'm not alone.

It was clear from her first contact with me that she had read everything I had communicated at the beginning of the process. She has continued to show that she understands and asks great, thought provoking questions.

I have not been talking with Danielle all that long but even in this amount of time she has helped me more than anyone in a long time. My family was one that didn't believe in therapy so it took me time to try this and online is awesome. She never pressures me to go live but offers it to me. I can't thank you enough!

Danielle is a legend helping legends get on track. She has been amazing to work with because she understands how to frame things, has amazing communication skills and the best metaphors to make concepts make sense. She is also patient, understanding and funny. I’ve been working with Danielle for about a year now and I can see how she has helped me learn to help myself. She is an absolute legend.

From the minute I was matched with Danielle, she responded to introduce herself. She has been phenomenal to work with. She has tried to tackle everything I’ve thrown at her! And she hasn’t even blinked an eye at anything I’ve thrown her way. Her sessions are not only helpful but really interesting. Her counseling style is super easy to understand and follow. I am so pleased with this experience.

My experience has been refreshing. I really just needed someone to listen to me and tell me if I’m being ridiculous in various situations, haha. I like to listen to different view points and to ultimately hear strategies/advice to help me in my relationships.

I really like how easy it has been to discuss topics with Danielle. She does a great job giving analogies if I don't quite understand something. We have used the online messaging and have had phone sessions, and I really like having the options that are available through BetterHelp. It has been a great experience and I would definitely recommend to my friends.

I take time to reveal a lot of things to people. But Danielle has helped me ease into the process of sharing. Day by day, and little by little. I feel like just sharing and listening to the little advices has helped me think for myself regarding my current situation. Thanks Danielle. I hope to continue therapy with your help.
