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 dialog 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

I have had two sessions with Daphne so far and she is great, supportive and very understanding, without judgement. Looking forward to continuing together.
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 a wonderful listener and reflects with much insight. She is very compassionate. She is really helping me with relationships and dating, and the crucial boundaries needed to be healthy.
I trust Daphne’s expertise, she has been great to work with, offering me the help I need in a way that calms me and makes me reflect on myself and improve myself.
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!
As I usually say, I cannot say enough good things about Daphne!!! Seriously! You matched me perfectly with her. She’s so kind and understanding. I can tell I’m getting better. All thanks to her! My mom wants me to see someone in person but I couldn’t ever stop seeing Daphne she’s so incredible!

I have been working with Daphne for a few months now. I originally joined counselling for a different reason but some huge major life changes happened and Daphne has been a huge help in helping me to overcome these sudden and overwhelming changes. Daphne has a warm and friendly approach. She is a great listener and offers good insight into helping me decifer what is going on for me. She has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in different issues and a range of techniques on how to deal with these issues.

Daphne has been such a huge help to me. I really feel heard and understood during our sessions; and she's offered some really helpful feedback and suggestions that I've been able to implement with good results. I highly recommend her!
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.
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.
Daphne is extremely caring and helpful. She makes good suggestions and really listens to try to help you cope or find strategies on how to deal with issues.
I’ve never had this type of success in therapy before. Daphne is easy to talk to, listens, remembers, cares, and offers phenomenal feedback. 10/10!
