Danielle Glaab, CCFT, MA.
Are you feeling at a loss right now? You may not know where to go from here, what to do, or how to help yourself or even a loved one. Maybe you are searching for answers or maybe just somebody to listen to what is going on in your life. Whatever is bringing you to counseling, whether you are at the beginning of your journey, your last resort, or anywhere in between, Danielle wants you to know you are heard, valued, and understood. She understands this can be a scary time full of questions, and that’s okay. When you talk with Danielle, she’ll help to answer some those questions, put your mind at ease, and walk with you on your journey towards wellness.
Danielle provides an affirming environment where you are able to feel all emotions, explore what makes you who you are, and strive for personal growth. It is her belief that change occurs when individuals are allowed to explore their emotions through a strengths based approach to counseling. This approach allows you to capitalize on the strengths you already have while adding more skills into the toolbox of your life. Using a unique and individualized approach allows her to tailor your work together to benefit you best. This also allows the space needed to keep treatment engaging and interactive through various techniques including: role-plays, bibliotherapy, play therapy, art therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Rapid Resolution Trauma Therapy, music, and various theory specific interventions.
Danielle’s specialties include Youth (children and adolescents), substance use/abuse, process addictions (e.g. video game addiction), LGBTQIA+/sexual and gender minorities, and behavioral difficulties. In addition to my specialties, I can work with the following:
