Danielle has been helping children and young adults learn and grow in school and private practice settings since 2014. At Green Leaf, she provides both assessment and therapy services. Danielle conducts psycho-educational assessments in order to help understand a child's learning profile so they can thrive in their academic setting and beyond. Her work focuses on challenges related to ADHD, anxiety, depression, Autism Spectrum Disorder, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia, among other disorders. Danielle uses the information she learns in the testing process to communicate the child's learning style to the child, parents, and educators. She then tailors custom recommendations that readily fit into the classroom setting. Danielle provides guidance to families to ensure that they have the knowledge they need to effectively navigate all levels of specialized services within school systems, particularly within special education. Danielle has experience working with all school-aged children, with an additional specialization in high-school transition assessments to inform post-secondary supports. In addition to testing services, Danielle has expertise in helping kids learn and apply Cognitive Behavioral Therapy skills to manage and overcome socio-emotional challenges related to anxiety, depression, ADHD, social skill delays, and school-related stressors. She also teaches children and teens executive functioning skills and adaptive daily living skills, to help kids learn how to best plan, organize, and manage their time and belongings, as well as how to attend to their self-care needs. Danielle also has experience in helping teens and young adults learn college-readiness skills so they can learn the independent living skills needed to thrive.
I value being an advocate for children and families in navigating the educational system and providing high quality assessments that yield a thorough analysis of a student’s
strengths and challenges. I am passionate about assisting families access the educational supports and programming needed for their child to succeed in school. - Danielle
