Hello there! I'm Danae. Do you feel unhappy in your current life situation? Do feelings of depression, anxiety or low self-esteem keep you feeling "stuck" or "lost?" Sometimes life on the outside seems "okay" while we feel "empty" on the inside. Let's figure this out together.Whether you are struggling with your relationships, going through a season of change in your life or seeking a greater sense of purpose and meaning in your life, I would be honored to work with you. My intention as your therapist is to be a safe and healing presence in your life, accepting you as you are and holding space so you can be your truest self. I believe that therapy should be a healthy and restorative process where you feel safe, valued, and understood. Every obstacle is an opportunity for transformation, and together we will seek wisdom and reflect on the growth that longs to occur in your life.
I have experience working with adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, life-transitions, stress, substance use, family issues, grief and loss, and self-esteem. I also have a background working with children, kids, and teens (ages 5-17) who struggle with academic success, autism, substance use, anxiety, depression, transitions, ADHD/Oppositional behaviors, family issues and emotional hardships. I enjoy individual therapy sessions, along with family and group therapy sessions. During therapy, I utilize client-centered and strength-based approaches with my clients along with DBT, CBT, Family Systems and Solution Focused techniques. Let's look at what you want, what you need, and how we can work together to help you move toward a more fulfilling life. I look forward to connecting with you!
