Starting therapy was the best decision I ever made.  Danielle is a straight-forward and supportive therapist who gets to the heart of the issues and provides insight to initiate helpful growth, strength, and peace of mind going forward. Highly recommend!


I started seeing Danielle after Dr. Kolli referred me to her for therapy. I was unable to function in college because of my anxiety and Danielle helped teach me ways to get it under control. Her kindness, warmth, and genuine interest made me comfortable and I was able to talk about what was bothering me. She provided great tools for me to use when I felt anxious and I plan on going back to college next semester.


I have seen several therapists and I have not found someone as talented as Danielle.  I felt an immediate connection and she has helped me take control over my life again. I felt like I was always someone’s mother or someone’s wife, but lost “me” in the picture. I feel like my work with Danielle allowed me to rediscover who I am again.  I can’t recommend her enough!
