What do you look for in a ​therapist?

Hey, I’m Dani. Help is hard to ask for, especially when it ​comes to mental health. Let me assure you of a few ​things: my approach is strength-centered and ​collaborative. You are the expert on your life and ​experience. I can help you with understanding and ​managing anxiety, depression, and healing from past ​trauma. Together we can work on building emotional ​intelligence, distress tolerance, and communication ​skills. As a trans-masculine non-binary butch, I enjoy ​working with people in learning more about and ​affirming their sexuality and gender.

Finding a fit

Everyone can benefit from therapy, ​especially when you find the right fit in ​your therapist! Go with your gut on this​ one. What you’re looking for is someone​ that you can talk to and feel comfortable​ around. ​

In sessions with me, you can expect the​ freedom to stim, be off camera, crochet,​ play a soothing video game, etc. As long​ as you’re feeling connected and​ comfortable to talk, then you’re ready for​ session. ​

Some helpful questions to ask when​ consulting: “Have you worked with my​ diagnosis and/or my community before?​ Do you have sliding scale spots open?"​

Questions to expect

The first phone call can be intimidating, ​so it can be helpful to know what some ​of the questions are in advanced. The ​free consultation call is both for you to ​get to know more about me, and for me ​to get some introduction to you and ​what you’d like to work on.


  • What brings you to therapy now?
  • Have you done therapy before? If yes, ​what worked for you and what did ​you dislike?
  • What are some goals you have for ​yourself and your future?

Fees and Good Faith Estimate

Fees for Sessions*

I offer a sliding scale down ranging from $100 to $175 per individual therapy or Brainspotting session. My ​standard rate is $125. I do not offer a sliding scale for couple’s therapy. Alternatively, I am an Open Path clinician ​for those who are without insurance and seeking therapy at an even lower rate. Go to https://bit.ly/3uqCAMH for ​more information on Open Path if you are without insurance. For couple’s therapy, the scale is $150 to $200 ​and the standard rate is $175.


For those who are not experiencing financial hardship and are able to pay the hire fee for individual therapy or ​Brainspotting, I encourage you to pay $175 for a session as this helps provide for those who are unable to pay the ​standard rate.

Go​od Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost Under the ​law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an ​estimate of the bill for medical items and services. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good ​Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For ​questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
