Mental Health Therapist
Growing up in a small beach town and agricultural mecca in Santa Cruz, California, Danielle built relationships with friends and community members from diverse backgrounds. She saw the need to bridge the gap between these diverse groups of people and committed her undergraduate studies to Family and Human Services at the University of Oregon where she graduated in 2014. There she also completed her Minor in Spanish while studying and living abroad in Mexico to improve her Spanish speaking skills as she knew being bilingual would assist her in being able to serve more individuals throughout her career and connect to a culture that was so prominent in her upbringing. Danielle then dedicated her career to serving vulnerable children and families in her hometown. After a few years in the Social Work field, Danielle then pursued her master’s degree in Social Work at San Jose State University and graduated in 2020. Upon graduation, she moved to San Diego as she saw it as an opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. Danielle has spent the majority of her career working with young people and families through a trauma-informed lens and the whole person approach. Danielle believes that mental, physical, and spiritual health are all interconnected and she integrates this into her practice. When Danielle is not at work, you will find her spending time outside, exploring nature with loved ones, writing poetry, or practicing yoga. Danielle enjoys going to the beach, cooking, and trying new foods and restaurants in the San Diego area!
