Hi, I am Danielle Palmer and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
Fun fact about me: I appreciate the beauty in Mindfulness exercises and enjoy integrating them into my therapy when it fits well with others. The practice of Mindfulness incorporates many components, including kindness, awareness, communication, connection, and meditation. I have used mindfulness-related techniques to help individuals with anxiety, stress management, anger, and self-compassion.
I have experience working with individuals who struggle with grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, and anger-related issues. My professional experience also consisted of working with people who suffer from addiction and problems related to their substance use.
My approach to counseling is collaborative, as I first focus on creating a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship. As the clinician, I will work with you to identify goals and address the barriers that are preventing you from reaching them. I view your world from a holistic perspective- acknowledging that people are made up of many parts (i.e., emotional, physical, spiritual, social) and are affected by factors in each of them. We will look at the decisions and choices you’ve made and compare them to what you actually want for your life.
My treatment is intentional and focused, while also being supportive and encouraging. I await the opportunity to hear from you.
