I'm Danielle.

I am:

a nurse (but I can't stand throw up), a teacher (whose patience is quite thin), a housecleaner (who jumps from room to room and leaves things unfinished), a party planner (this stresses me out but I'm pretty good!), a mediator, a chef (I make a mean bowl of cereal), a chauffeur (I hate driving)...and I'm willing to bet if you are reading this, you are probably all of these things too are a mom.  WOW, we take on a lot of roles.  And for some reason we expect ourselves to be really good at all of them!

Hmmmmmmm.  Think about that for a minute while I tell you a bit more.

Aside from being a mom of two, I am also:

  • a survivor of postpartum depression, postpartum OCD, and anxiety during pregnancy.

  • someone who was misdiagnosed for 20+ years as having generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder,etc. when really, ADHD is my thing :)

  • a licensed professional counselor and certified perinatal mental health specialist

  • a believer in therapy...for the first time in my life my brain finally has space for joy and fun!

As a therapist, what you see is what you get.  I'm quite present in our sessions and sometimes you may see me tear up, smile...I'm human!  I'm also not afraid to share things I have experienced or learned in my own journey if I feel they are relevant and supportive.  Don't worry- I will always ask your permission and will never make your time about fact, I want to know all about what has and hasn't worked for you in the past to make sure we do more of the helpful techniques and less of the other.  I truly believe you are the expert in your own life.  My role is to help point out some inconsistencies that you may not be able to see.
