Welcome to Faithful Counseling!
People come to therapy for many reasons, including feelings of anxiety and depression. I try to do what I can to create open communication so that we can start to create goals and work on removing obstacles. I want this process to be worthwhile and something where therapy isn't seen as a bad experience. I work with warmth and non judgement to create a safe environment so that you can talk about all of your concerns and ask any questions.
My counseling style has been described as warm, blunt, and with a sense of humor. I usually ask many simple questions, because I want to help people reach their own conclusions. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I also feel that it is important that people know all of their options before they make decisions.
I believe that our past has a big impact on how we act now. I specialize in trauma work, so I do often see things through the lens of how trauma may be impacting us. My approach tends to be a cognitive behavioral modality. So I tend to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing techniques. But I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs, since I see counseling as helping people help themselves.
When I'm working with someone, my ultimate goal is to give them enough tools so that I am essentially working myself out of a job!
I try to respond to messages as often as I can, which means that I am typically responding 1 to 2 times a day. Even though I do respond often, I don't have the ability to always immediately respond. This means that if you need consistent immediate assistance, a crisis call center or face to face counseling is more appropriate for you.
I have a decent availability during weekdays for live sessions. I do what I can to accommodate people, but I am willing to refer if my availability for live sessions does not work for people. I want to help people see counseling as a positive experience, even if that is with a different counselor than myself.
I am looking forward to going along this journey with you!

Danielle is a great listener. She is very respectful, professional and always nonjudgemental. She is careful and thoughtful with her comments. And she has a way of helping me come to my own conclusions by pointing out evidences that I may not have recognized were there. I highly reccommend her as a counselor. My friends and I have noticed a positve change in my outlook and my cofidence since I have been meeting with her. This experience has been well worth it. Thank you!
Danielle is very intuitive and prompt to respond. She is also patient when I need some time. She definitely knows her stuff and even though I have just started on a long journey, I feel very confident in her ability to assist me all along the way.
Danielle is incredibly skilled in her counseling. She is empathetic and knows just how much to push. She has extensive knowledge that helps her understand a variety of situations. She has helped me more than I hoped was possible.
