About me

I am a supervising Licensed Professional Counselor with over 20 years of experience in the field of mental health, behavioral health, substance abuse, and psychiatry. I have worked in various settings, including for-profit facilities, community mental health, and non-profit agencies, both inpatient and outpatient. I have worked with various populations including veterans, teens and adolescents, children, and adults. I am experienced in working with severely and chronically mentally ill patients.
While my preferred clinical approaches include client-centered, motivational, and solution-focused, I also have training in various other techniques and approaches, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Reality Therapy, among many others.
Some of the values that I believe are vital to the therapeutic process include respect, collaboration, authenticity, presence, and genuineness.
I would love to partner with you to help you to achieve your personal goals.

Dr McDaniel is an absolute ray of sunshine and has helped me to make really positive changes in my life. She’s enabled me to be independent and take control and of my depression. I’ve enjoyed our sessions so much and I’ve been able to be myself throughout. She’s supported me with tools for the long term and helped me with smaller issues too. I feel much more confident in how to manage my own depression and have noticed really positive changes since we started speaking. Thank you Dr McDaniel for helping me on the path to be my best self. Your support and words of wisdom will stay with me forever.

My weekly sessions with Dr. McDaniel have been incredibly helpful! She is kind, patient, and understanding. She doesn’t push you to talk about things you’re not ready to discuss, and she’s great at keeping the conversation going. I feel like I can be open and honest. This has been a great first experience with therapy!
