About Danielle

My approach with clients

I consider myself a collaborative therapist. . . .I work with you to find a way specifically tailored for you. If you don’t like homework . . .. we don’t do homework. If following a workbook feels more like progress we can select something specific to your needs.  I am often reading a new book, listening to various podcasts, youtube channels or doing a workbook. So you will find there are many resources to choose from that I am familiar with.

I am dedicated to working with each person individually. We are all unique, which means how I work with you will depend entirely on what you need. 

I am committed to education in my career

The therapies I have selected to use are experiential and action based.  They are: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Brainspotting. I am well versed in sex therapy. I compliment these skills through attending a sex therapist consultation group once per month. In addition, I attend a monthly therapist group for those working with neurodivergent adults. I am well versed in coaching and therapy for ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism and other neurodivergences. Last year I spent time learning about working with binge eating disorders, ARFID, intuitive eating and health at every size (HAES) principles. In the coming year I plan to focus on learning about financial trauma and struggles related to money. 

When I’m not a therapist

I have a wide variety of interests including being outdoors, technology projects, and am a strong advocate for self-directed learning. My past work experiences include forest engineering, car rental agent, international communications project manager, English teacher,  Blackjack dealer and auto service writer. I have lived and worked in several countries. I have lived experience with cross-cultural relationships and having neurodivergent family members. These experiences make relating with you easier no matter what background you may have.

When I am not being a therapist I am happily reading books. My go to topics for books (outside of psychology books) are: business, sex, cooking, gardening, and flower arrangement.  In the coming year I will be busy volunteering with our local community gardens and Horticulture society.
