I help young adults find their way.
You feel late to the party. You never quite figured out what you wanted to be when you grew up and now you are supposed to be “grown up.” You worry that you haven’t quite got it together yet. You can’t seem to figure out this whole relationship thing. It seems like everyone else your age has their lives in order but you’re still struggling. You’re just sick and tired of staying in the wrong jobs or relationships for too long. You hope for a better life and keep waiting for it to happen.
But you already know that you need to make it happen...
You’ve been trying to handle your feelings and your stress on your own but it feels like it is only getting worse. You are struggling just to make it through each day let alone figure out what’s next. You might be feeling depressed. Maybe even panicky. You feel like a failure… and that you are running out of time. At the heart of it all, you just want set things right in your life and find the guts to just go for what it is your really want, once and for all. Or maybe just take time to figure it out.
All you know is that you need a safe place to go and let it all hang out.
That's where I come in.
Hi I'm Daniela.
I'm a licensed psychologist. I help adults in their 20s and 30s connect with themselves and the world around them, live a life of passion, enjoy connective and loving relationships, experience freedom from limiting beliefs so that they can dare to pursue their dreams.
I am here to listen, support, and to help you work through and overcome the obstacles that are keeping you stuck. Whether they are coming from outside of you in the form of toxic relationships or environments or whether they are coming from within you in the form of self sabotage, self doubt, or addiction.
I believe we as beings are always in a state of change. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all striving for growth in our own ways. I believe we may reach critical moments throughout our lives that awaken us to the life that our deepest selves wish to live. Our 20s and 30s are a time rife with moments like these. Are you having such a moment? I'd love to help.
I am LGBTQ+ affirming. I welcome people from all races, backgrounds, faiths and walks of life. And while my specialty is working with adults in their 20s and 30s, I welcome adults of all ages.

Therapy for Yogis and Yoga for Therapy
Enhance Your Journey on Your Mat
Yogis and Yoga Teachers, you might feel like the depth of your yoga practice is understood by very few mental health practitioners. I feel you. You may feel as though yoga has helped you through part of the way in your healing process but now you are ready to deepen your personal and spiritual growth, as well as your practice. Or you may feel like a rockstar on your mat but your life is a shitshow off your mat. Either way, I can help.
I will weave some asana into sessions or asana assignments as appropriate. Yoga has so much to offer with regard to life balance, personal growth, and anxiety management. Pranayama (breathwork) can have tremendous benefits on mood, nervous system health, and overall wellbeing.
