About Me

Hi! I'm Danielle Peters, MFT, but you can call me Nell. I'm excited about working together with you to get through whatever might be holding you back from having the life you want. I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist and have eleven years experience working both for the community and in the private sector in northern California. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, addictions, codependence, eating disorders, cutting, and trauma. I have also helped people to cope with problematic relationships, parenting issues, grief/loss and life transitions. I also work with people struggling with body image, weight loss, domestic violence and women's issues. I have a special place in my heart for working with families of children with special needs.

I enjoy helping people find happiness and wholeness through making improvements in their lives. While I believe that each person deserves an individualized treatment plan, I mostly work from a cognitive behavioral standpoint which means that along with encouraging better self care and identifying the historical causes of the problem I will help you identify and change the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are perpetuating your struggles. I have a very warm, supportive and non-judgmental approach that will give you the safe space you need to achieve your goals. I understand how hard it can be to reach out for help, so i applaud you for taking this first step, and would love to support you in this journey.

I have always felt called to counseling and I believe that the ability to show Christ's love for each individual by creating a safe space for them to discover who they are meant to be is a blessing in my life. Christ's love heals. The world creates a lot of pain and trauma that blocks us from experiencing Christ's love fully. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space for you to feel God's love and begin to heal so that you can become the person that God called you to be.

Danielle is such a great person, and so helpful. She helped me get rid of a ton of things I was mentally carrying. I highly recommend her.

Danielle is very responsive and caring. I utilized her counseling services for a month for challenges I was having in my marriage, then paused while my husband and I had some intensive "in person" counseling, and now, 4 months later, I'm picking up with Danielle again as I continue to navigate the journey to a more fulfilled marriage and less stress. I greatly appreciate Danielle's connection, daily interaction and support, along with her wisdom and guidance.

I really like her. I am still only two weeks in, but so far my experience has been great. I feel like she is leading me well. My first time walking through counseling and I am still a little reserved but she has made me feel so comfortable and confident. I want the full healing I can get and I know that by getting that I have to be vulnerable she has encouraged me to do so and has been so helpful! I am super thankful that we got connect and excited to continue my journey.
