My Personal Approach

Knowledge truly is power - when we come to know ourselves, love and accept ourselves and others with all our imperfections, we learn to love deeply, authentically and unconditionally. Small personal changes lead to larger circles of support and interconnection in our lives.  

I take an interacitve approach in therapy so your sessions feel educational and engaging. Expect to laugh a lot. Together, we will explore the mind-body connection. You will learn the neurobiology of instinct, emotion and cognition and to trust your intuition. I want you to leave each session with something new to consider. I often give specialized tasks for clients to practice outside of session in order to master self-empowerment in the real world.  

You will be challenged to become your best self with me and I'm confident you will enjoy both the process and rewards of therapy.  I take great satisfaction in witnessing measurable progress with clients who actively engage in the therapeutic process.

My Theoretical Approach

I combine ideas from various individual and family systems theorists, but first, I am an objective observer and mindful partner in the therapeutic relationship. My natural approach is Humanistic, Rogerian, or Client-Centered. It is imperative for each client to feel seen, heard and understood, to trust a sense of unconditional positive regard from me and not to feel judged. Without this important therapeutic connection, minimal progress can be made.

As we establish rapport, each client and I systematically explore critical life events and transitions together by reviewing their unique personal history. Throughout this process, I integrate Bowenian and Attachment-based theories by examining family-of-origin and other early childhood relationships. Our early relationship experiences directly impact the current intimate relationships we choose with romantic partners, peers and even our employers.

In our homes and communities as children, we are utterly powerless.  Like particles of energy, our lives collide, propelling us into gravitational fields we may or may not be able to control.  We bond with what fits, often times with what feels familiar to us, even if at our core we know it doesn't feel right. We do the best we can growing up, often times flaling, as we navigate complex relationships and others' expectations of us. Most of us had minimal  guidance from our adult caregivers and role-models in areas of honest self-reflection, emotional awareness and personal responsibility.  Maybe we never experienced a felt sense of encouragement nor delight in our uniqueness from an adult while we were young. And for those of us who us who did, the likelihood of those constructs being tainted by hints of codependency, at best, is extremely high.

It is almost impossible to trust what we know is best for us, in each of our unique circumstances, when we're constantly trying to live our lives according to expectations of those who have a biased investment in our choices.  But what about all the stuff we can't learn from the same people and the same institutions? What about the the unfamiliar and non-traditional options? What about the fact that our ignorance can indeed hurt us, or at best, hold us back from a higher potential?

It is common, when attempting to reflect inward for the first time, to be flooded with self-doubt, anxiety and frustration. We don't know what to believe or who to trust, certainly not expecting the answers to be within ourselves. We don't know what is possible until we create and experience the lives and relationships each of us uniquely desires.

Therefore, we must learn to trust ourselves first within a healthy relationship, one without bias, obligation or expectations. Many of us start this first secure relationship with a therapist until we know how to recognize what security feels like with others. We learn to grasp secure, consistent connections while embracing the uncomfortable pull toward change, growth and healing.

As I support each client in their treatment goals, I demonstrate interoception and somatic awareness techniques to increase a client's mind-body connection as they learn to self-regulate and self-soothe. When we share our deepest feelings and experiences in safe, supportive and therapeutic environments, we enhance the potential for intimate connection and security with our loved ones.

Guided imagery and hypnotherapy are fantastic modalities to help clients get out of their heads (literally toning down cognitive activity in the frontal lobe) and into their bodies, allowing for both a cathartic release of emotion (processed in the limbic system of the brain but physiologically experienced in the rest of our bodies) and an increase in instinctual awareness (processed in the brain stem), which I can best describe as a deep sense of knowing what we need and deserve in order to feel safe. 

Neuroplasticity allows us to modify neural connections impacted by genetic and social influences that shaped our instincts, emotions and thoughts over time, thereby learning to trust ourselves to adapt our behaviors now, in accordance with our current circumstances. As we slowly test new behavioral waters, we build courage and strength to achieve a deep sense of security within and around us.

Unlike children and now, as adults, we have the power to choose how we perceive and interact with the world around us. By enhancing self-awareness, we can optimize self-worth. Only with a high level of self-respect, confidence and trust can we maximize the quality of our chosen relationships with others, emotionally, sexually and spiritually/intuitively. 

It's a great honor to be entrusted in the therapeutic relationship with each client I have the privilege to treat. I thoroughly enjoy hearing each client's story and witnessing their evolution until their treatment goals are both achieved and sustained over time. Individual and relationship growth has remained a lifelong passion of mine, so naturally, I'm glad to be here with each client, until the work is done.

About Danielle

My passion for deep, intimate connections with fellow humans cannot be reduced to my work as a therapist. Quality time and physical affection are my love languages. I thrive in open, honest, authentic and meaningful conversations with anyone willing to join me, both professionally and personally.

I also long for solitude, where I replenish my social and creative energy. In these quiet moments, I can be found daydreaming, contemplating, reflecting, reading, researching or writing, like a true introvert. Aside from my hobby of nerding out in all areas of study in social sciences and humanities, I also relish in learning about various aspects of the natural world and how all things are interconnected. I'm drawn to physics, epigenetics, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and phenomenology.  

I'm filled with gratitude for having the privilege to explore the globe, to observe and appreciate unique sociocultural and environmental terrains.  As a visual and experiential learner, when I'm immersed in a new culture, I can better integrate my observations at scale.  Although tourist attractions have their obvious draws, I also like to meet locals or natives who can provide experiences off the beaten path of a typical tourist agenda.  

When vacationing, I gravitate toward warm climates where I can relax on a beach, read, and scuba dive. Large bodies of water comfort me. In a meditative state, I love to visualize escaping to the calm depths of the sea.
