Danielle Wash completed her Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling at Southeast Missouri State University in 2021 and has a Bachelor of Science in Gerontology and Psychology and strives to better the mental health of her clients to help them age successfully.
As a counselor, Danielle is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), for helping clients overcome the impact of trauma, and follows Existential philosophy, applying techniques from Narrative, Gestalt, and Adlerian Therapy. This allows her to adjust her counseling style to suit the unique needs of every client, meeting them where they are and assisting them in their counseling goal.
As clients begin to embrace change and growth throughout the lifespan, they can create the life they want to live. Danielle believes that clients are the expert of their story and counselors are a client’s guide to untangling their narrative. Danielle has experience working with adults, addressing concerns including anxiety, depression, relationships, grief, spirituality, LGBTQ+ issues, and aging and adjustment. In the future.
Outside of counseling, Danielle appreciates time alone to recharge her compassion for others. Her favorite acts of self-care include camping, indoor gardening, playing with her five birds, and crafting with her husband.
