Danielle is an alumnus from Nipissing University, having graduated with her BA Honours in Psychology and continued her passion of helping others at the University of Guelph, completing an MSc in Couple and Family Therapy. Danielle has extensive experience in both brief and longer-term therapy methods, working with (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, sexuality and intimacy, chronic pain, addiction, crisis intervention, and couples/family conflict. It is of the utmost importance to Danielle that her clients feel safe, supported, and not judged in order to be open and vulnerable, both of which can be difficult and scary for some. She therefore strives to meet clients where they are at so that they can explore meaning in their lives and the goals that they wish to achieve for themselves. Danielle feels a true honour to be able to implement helpful tools to empower success within her clients, as she believes they are capable of achieving whatever is important to them – we all just need a little help sometimes!​
