About Me

My strength is listening and assisting others with knowing self better so as to tap into talents as one resolves and better understand present concerns and issues negatively impacting on health and wellness. I've twenty five plus years experience counseling others in better managing depression, anxiety, loss and grief, parenting, addictions, bullying, acceptance, traumas and other challenges. Having worked with many clients as a licenced counselor in North Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee I've gained much knowledge and awareness that can be passed on to others. Both counselor and client learn and gain in a positive therapeutic relationship maximizing client progress.

My counseling style includes using motivational interviewing, narrative, evidenced based non-medical counseling strategies, solution focused and cognitive behavioral techniques as blended to the needs/concerns of unique individuals. I affirm individual and family strengths and assist clients with using those strengths to address the concerns and issues agreed to.

The counseling process is engaged to help client know thyself better and feel empowered to continue to increase in health and well being as we conclude our short walk together. Please feel free to connect and walk through a positive counseling experience.

Written by D.E. on Oct 08, 2019 after counseling with Danny for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, addictions, grief, and bipolar disorder

Danny is an excellent, empathetic listener. He is helping me form a positive perspective on bettering myself while encouraging me to be kind to myself. He really connects with what I’m trying to convey even if I don’t know exactly how to phrase my points and always provides helpful feedback and advice. Overall, I would recommend BetterHelp and Danny Drew to any of my friends or colleagues. 10/10

Danny has been such a big support! Talking to him feels like I am being listened to. He remembers the things I tell him, he reminds me of things I left behind, and he says things that help me make a decision. I keep a notepad next to me during every session because I like to take notes of things Danny says. I was in need of counseling for a while and I am glad I started when I did. Danny got to know me and learned about my situation before a lot more happened and when I had his help through the hardest times it made it all clearer. Getting back on my feet feels easier and I get more and more confident in the steps that I take. Thanks to Danny Drew and BetterHelp. It's great to have you!

I had some trauma when I was younger that was severely affecting my life and my relationships in a negative way. I also didn't have even the kind of money to afford this service for a long period of time. But Danny took the time and discussed treatment options for PTSD that I did not know much about before. I had tried different forms of therapy with limited success, but being able to write out my feelings, thoughts, and experiences allowed me to express myself in a way that I would not feel comfortable doing while sitting one on one with someone in the same room with me. Maybe that's a sign of me being on the older side of the texting/dm/instant message generation, but the messenger discussion was a game changer for me. Danny and BetterHelp helped me so much in a short amount of time, and they didn't dismiss me or treat me as less important just because of my adverse financial situation. Because of Danny, I found a local EMDR therapist that I can see, and it has been so helpful. Thank you so much.

I found Danny Drew to be friendly and caring. He seemed to show genuine interest in my problems and was keen to do what ever he could to help. I felt he understood me well. He gave encouragement and when needed drew me back to the question he had asked when I was going off at a tangent. I have every faith in his service. I would not hesitate to recommend Danny to anyone else.
