PSYCHOTHERAPY

Our approach is warm, compassionate, active and engaged.

We specialize in treating adults in their 20s and 30s, who typically identify as millennials. Most feel they have what constitutes a good life – secure jobs, close relationships, active social lives and more – yet they feel anxious, lost, confused, sad, unfulfilled, burned out and unsure of their purpose. Many also experience significant distress from an endless drive toward achievement, rather than fulfillment.

 

Together we’ll investigate the thoughts, emotions and behaviors interfering with your ability to feel joyful and fulfilled. Then we’ll develop strategies that align with your values and help you live the life you desire.

Our approach is warm, compassionate, active and engaged. We utilize evidence-based treatments such as CBT, ACT, Schema Therapy and mindfulness-based interventions while also placing tremendous value on the relationship in therapy. That’s why we focus on developing safe, strong and collaborative working relationships with our clients as the foundation of all our work.

“Working with Daniela literally changed my life.  Daniela is incredibly warm, unique, and easy to talk to. Through the success of the strategies we came up with together, I am happier, more filled with love, and more confident and aware of my own self-worth than I have ever been.  Through her coaching, my business is also thriving.  I can’t recommend Daniela highly enough.” – Kendra B.

“Daniela is truly AMAZING! Initially I was feeling overwhelmed by the many tasks I needed to complete and all the steps I needed to take in order to get my business off the ground. Our phone calls and in person meetings were incredibly motivating and productive. Daniela assisted me in making progress with my goals by tackling issues head-on and taking action steps. With Daniela, I was able to address challenges ranging from logistical and financial dilemmas to more existential problems and obstacles within myself. Together we identified what was holding me back and how to move forward. She is intelligent, knowledgeable, and experienced, yet she exudes a great sense of humor and a down-to-earth vibe. Daniela provides the compassionate support of a great therapist while simultaneously offering the necessary encouragement and structure of a talented coach.  I would very highly recommend her as a coach or a therapist to anyone!” – Julia L.
