Danielle Wash, PLPC
Danielle Wash is a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor (PLPC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). She completed her Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling at Southeast Missouri State University in 2021 and Bachelor of Science in Gerontology and Psychology with a minor in Religious Studies in 2018, striving to help others better their mental health and age successfully.
As a counselor, Danielle is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), to assist clients in working through responses to complex trauma, and follows Existential philosophy, applying techniques from Narrative and Gestalt Therapy. This allows her to adjust her counseling style to suit the unique needs of every client, meeting them where they are and helping them decide where they want to go.
As clients begin to embrace change and their authentic self, 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, facilitated by the non-judgemental authenticity and genuineness of the client-counselor relationship. Danielle has experience working with adults, addressing a variety of concerns including ADHD, perfectionism, grief, spirituality, LGBTQ+ issues, and aging and adjustment.
Outside of counseling, Danielle appreciates time alone to recharge her compassion for others. Her favorite acts of self-care include camping, playing with her five birds, and crafting with her husband.
