Danielle (she/her/hers) is an LGPC working under the supervision of Jennifer Valenta, LCSW-C.
During her time in both undergraduate and graduate school, Danielle has worked in a variety of clinical settings to gain more experience and discover her passions. Most recently, Danielle has focused her work within a private practice setting with teens, young adults, and adults. Danielle is passionate about a variety of clinical areas including adjustment challenges, anxiety, college student development, depression, identity development with LBGTQ+ individuals, and family of origin issues. Danielle places an emphasis on providing a safe and welcoming environment for clients of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, spiritual beliefs, and other diverse groups.
Danielle incorporates an integrative approach that cultivates gentleness, acceptance, and compassion towards ourselves and others. Her style is sincere, authentic, and direct when needed, placing an emphasis on the importance of self-awareness and how one’s thoughts can impact feelings and behaviors. She views her role in the therapeutic process less as the “expert” in the room and more as a collaborator helping her clients move towards insight, authenticity, and lasting change.
Danielle graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in Political Science. She then went on to further her education and passion by earning her Master of Science in Clinical Professional Counseling at Loyola University Maryland. When she’s not seeing clients, you can find her hanging out with friends, listening to true crime podcasts, painting, or having a dance party to SZA & Sabrina Carpenter.
