Danielle Connella, LCSW

“I believe that each person walking into my office has unique experiences and strengths that help them overcome the hardships they face. Those strengths are often the foundation for the work done in therapy, as we take what is already inherent to that individual and build skills and tools to allow them the ability to be the best version of themselves. 

“In my experience, those seeking therapy are often doing so out of a deep need to connect with their loved ones and/or hurt parts of themselves. It is my role to walk with my clients as they face the emotions, experiences, and fears that they need to; even when they’d rather not. Therapy is often not about wanting to work through something, but about having no other option.”
