About me

I am a therapist offering more than 20 years of experience helping my clients with a variety of issues. My area of specialty is trauma treatment. I hold certifications in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and advanced clinical trauma treatment. I am a Certified Integrative Mental Health Provider and this allows me to use a combination of traditional evidence-based practices along with holistic approaches for overall wellness. A person's mental health is influenced by many different factors both internal and external. Our mental health can be influenced by our stress, our lack of connectedness to others, our diet, sleep issues, painful past experiences, and our environment. My skillset allows me to provide therapy that helps my clients reach all of their identified goals for wellness and quality of life.

Daphne is an incredible listener. She really takes the time to hear me out and asks all the right questions to get a better understanding before offering her expertise. I’ve felt so comfortable with her and she makes talking about the hardest things very easy

Daphne knows which actionable tools to use to help you. In addition to being a great listener, she is someone who will work with you to give you a “toolbox” to use in helping you work towards great mental health.

Daphne was extremely compassionate, caring, and listened to me. She was helpful, insightful, and backing up her suggestions with articles or other resources. I'm so thankful for Daphne and all of her help to manage the trauma that I experienced recently and how to cope.

Daphne is fantastic! She is empathetic, understanding, and patient. She is great with helping me understand how trauma affects the body and instills hope by letting me know that my brain and body can be retrained on how they view the world. Helps me to realize that my brain isn’t “broken” but just needs time, love, and patience to heal.
