About Me

Hello,
You're probably curious to learn a bit about me and my style. Here goes..

I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Michigan and have been working with individuals who are looking to make some kind of change in their life for the past 5 years. I began working with women who are survivors of domestic abuse and/or sexual assault and have also worked with individuals who are struggling with substance use and are looking to make a change in their life. Each and every person brings a unique set of strengths and talents to the table that they already have. I believe that each individual I work with has the chance to succeed with their goals and skills that we develop together in sessions

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness utilizing a trauma informed empowerment approach. I am also a kink aware therapist. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek 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. It would be an honor for me to be part of your journey

Daphne is kind and compassionate. I feel like she hears me, validates me, and gives me good homework.

Daphne is the best therapist I've found. She listens and validates my feelings. She provides tools to deal with issues, and helps me overcome my fears. She relates on a human level that most therapist I feel like do not. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

From day 1, she’s been my saving grace. I don’t know what I’d do without her. She makes me feel normal and helps me through the hardest times. But, sometimes when I just can’t talk about the hard stuff and I just want to talk- we have so much in common that we can talk about so many things. Sometimes you just need someone to talk to about things you’re interested in. But, we still work on the hard stuff. It’s a long slow process but Rome wasn’t built in a day, it’s not a sprint and with my old therapist I placed what happened to me in a box and then a metal box and then welded it shut but a year ago it was broken into and I’d be dead if it wasn’t for Daphne. She is helping me worth through what I’ve been through instead of putting it back into a box and creating yet another personality or version of myself. There’s 4 different me’s and we are working on only having one. She actually cares and is taking her time to help me heal the right way. It’s refreshing. I wish I could have more than one virtual appointment a week. It would help so much! She’s that good!

My session with Daphne have open so many doors and unlocked parts of myself I didn't think I could see again. Some people have a life changing impact in your life and she is one of them!

Written by A.L. on May 13, 2022 after therapy with Daphne for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Daphne is extremely understanding in the relationship issues I've been having. She's also very personable and offers anecdotes of her own life to illustrate some of the points she's making. Also she is very professional and patient; I know I'm not the most amenable to change sometimes... And Daphne's been a saint.

Written by H.E. on Mar 26, 2022 after therapy with Daphne for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I love Daphne’s calm, deliberate, insightful way of speaking. It’s very compassionate, patient, and loving. I feel safe and comfortable exploring many aspects of my life with her.

3 weeks into joining Betterhelp out of sheer desperation at not being to get into see someone in person. So I thought I would sign up and at least try. I thought I would have to chop and change multiple therapists to find the right fit but after 24 hours I was matched with Daphne and wow! Expectations have been exceeded, Daphne has the experience in all aspects that I was specifically looking for with a lovely, supportive and down to earth attitude. I am feeling hopeful and looking forward to continuing to work with Daphne.

Daphne has been a great asset to help me get through an extremely difficult postpartum period. She not only listens but provides multiple instructions on how to navigate through any difficult time. She is empathetic and holds me accountable for the things I say I’m going to do and the “homework” I am given. Daphne has helped me gain confidence in areas that I needed to work on and helped me manage unique and every day stressors which we’re crippling me from functioning normally. She has played a significant role in saving my life and preserving the relationships with my family. She is non judgmental, treats me with respect and I felt heard when I speak with her. I am incredibly grateful for her and would never be able to express how much of a difference my sessions with her have changed my life.

It's early in the game for me and BetterHelp as an additional tool to my life long therapeutic journey. That said, BetterHelp has found a rather seamless way to integrate 21st century tools with B.C. epiphanies.

Daphne is respectful, understanding, and caring. She is always willing to work with me and is willing to make adjustments for me. She knows my concerns and has helped me take steps toward addressing then; and she is always willing to listen if that's what I need.

Daphne is super practice and so so encouraging. She always reminds me to be nice to myself and has really helped me realize how much of how my day is dependent on my sleep and body balance and truly I’m not to blame. I’ve gotten so much serenity working with her.

Daphne is now the third counsellor I’ve had and she’s just been amazing so far! Things just seemed to click with her from day 1. She’s been so supportive and she checks in almost daily which is fab! She’s gave me a variety of CBT based activities to complete which have been really beneficial and she clearly explains things and provides beneficial resources! I could not recommend Daphne highly enough!

I haven't worked with Daphne for long, but already I feel well connected to them . They listen to me and validate all my feelings without enabling bad habbits.
I have been given excellent techniques and truly get the sense they care about my path of recovery. I am so happy to be paired with Daphne and look forward to working together with them in the future.

Written by N.I. on Nov 28, 2020 after therapy with Daphne for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and self esteem

When I signed up a few weeks ago I was terrified. I was scared of who I would be talking to, what they would say, and what they would think of me. After the first few messages with Daphne, my worries already started to disappear. By the time I got to our first session, I was completely comfortable with speaking with her. Daphne is warm, and so incredibly helpful. You can really tell how much she truly cares for the people she's working with. She is extremely good at making you feel less alone in your feelings and experiences. She is so open to new ways of thinking, and working at your own pace. Because of Daphne, I know that my future will only get better. If you were paired with Daphne for one reason or another, I would consider you extremely lucky.
