Dani is a white, queer, fat, femme clinician whose practice is grounded in a liberatory perspective that aims to empower individuals to discover their complexities, nuances, and inner ability to heal themselves and others through relationship and community. Dani has extensive experience working with adolescents and adults in private practice, residential, medical, and school-based settings, which invoked her desire to embody anti-oppressive, anti-racist, queer and transfeminist frameworks. Dani is committed to this work by acknowledging the historical and present harms of the mental health system and seeks to actively disrupt white supremacy logic.
Dani holds a Masters of Social Work from Smith College’s School for Social Work. She is curious to explore how systemic and structural oppression impacts our ability to live authentic, pleasurable, and joyous lives with her clients. Dani believes that each individual is the expert of their own journey, and utilizes strength-based and trauma-informed practices to co-create a space where vulnerability and meaning-making can arise.
Dani draws from relational, narrative, psychodynamic, and dialectical behavioral therapy. Her clinical interests include cultivating queer joy, gender and sexuality development, marginalized stress and oppression, life transitions, abolition, sex positivity, body neutrality, reproductive justice, neurodivergence, and present moment awareness. Dani is passionate about engaging clients in affirming, non-pathological, and transformative work through use of humor, warmth, and compassion. Outside of work you may find Dani whipping up a delicious meal, saying hi to every dog she encounters, listening to Beyoncé, or spending time in nature.
