Danielle continued with this area of work focusing on parents who are at risk of losing their children and parents with foster care needs in South Florida. She noticed that a consistent affliction of these families was the disease of addiction and that became a focus of her interventions along with Family Focused Therapy. Danielle’s compassion and passion for therapy led her to continue her career in the field of addiction treatment. In addition to being certified in TF-CBT (Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Danielle simultaneously utilizes skills from Gestalt Therapy and Motivational Interviewing in performing a mindfulness technique to offer support for her clients. Danielle left the environment of substance abuse counseling and joined private practice to focus her expertise with individual, family, martial and child/adolescent counseling addressing a variety of issues and disorders.
