Danielle believes that the therapeutic relationship is at the crux of change. Through this lens, she offers a safe, warm, and empathic space for clients to explore their inner world. Counseling is not just for those experiencing a life crisis or a current difficulty—counseling is an opportunity to learn new skills, gain new insights, and position oneself for increased health and wellness. Although Danielle practices through a foundation of psychodynamic therapy, she believes that every client is unique and needs something different from the therapeutic process. Pulling from a variety of modalities, Danielle tailors techniques in a creative way to fit those needs. Through working together, Danielle believes that she can help you find your way back to the path for growth and emotional well-being. Danielle has experience working with adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship problems, work-life balance struggles, familial troubles, grief and loss, and trauma.
Danielle received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Communication from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and obtained her Masters of Arts in Counseling from Northwestern University. While obtaining her Masters, Danielle trained at The Family Institute as well as Turning Point Behavioral Health Care Center, a community mental health agency where she worked with a variety of individuals from diverse backgrounds.
