Favorite Quote:
from Alice in Wonderland:
The Mad Hatter: “Have I gone mad?”
Alice: “I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”

I have been working in the human service field with a wide range of clientele over the past seven years. I have experience working with individuals and families of all different ages and especially enjoy working with adolescents. I have supported individuals who have experienced various stresses and mental health issues including; family violence, depression, anxiety, abuse, grief and loss, addiction, and parenting. I believe most people can benefit at one time or another from the support and guidance of a counselling relationship.

Danielle also provides mental health information through social media. You can follow her on Facebook, Twitter, and on her blog. The links will be available here soon.
