Danielle has been with Headway since August, 2018 and has worked in human services since 2007. She has past experience working with adolescents with severe emotional disorders in a level 5 setting, and children with autism and their families. As a school-based therapist, she works with an interdisciplinary team while also providing individual services to children and their families in an elementary school setting, as well as school staff. She has the ability to provide support in a school setting where kids spend most of their time. She specializes in trauma-specific therapy, including EMDR and TF-CBT, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. "My goal is to work with students to help them gain skills and recognize their strengths, as well as provide guidance and support to their family," she says. "In my role, I also serve as an advocate for mental health awareness and connect teachers and staff to resources."

Outside of work, Danielle enjoys spending time with her family, camping, swimming, watching movies, and playing games. She also enjoys reading and making photo books.
