Love going to Danielle. I’ve been going for about 6 months now and things have got a bit easier to handle

“I have attempted going to many therapists over the years. Danielle is very compassionate and caring and makes effective use of your time in therapy. She has had a very positive influence in helping me heal from emotional trauma and I’m starting to get my life back after years of seeking help from different providers. It is not only beneficial to me, but my family and my relationships.”


Satisfied Client

“After the end of my 18 year marriage, I found myself lost in a crazy mess of emotions. I had been so strong…during his affair, as I watched my marriage fall apart, throughout the divorce process. But suddenly I found myself wrecked by a wave of emotions that I didn’t expect or know how to deal with. A friend of mine referred me to Danielle. She made sense of my madness. She gave me permission to sit in what I was feeling, and as a result, I have been able to start the healing process.”
