Danica offers in-person therapy and Telehealth to fit the client’s needs.

Danica is enthusiastic about forming a safe place and a strong therapeutic relationship with her clients. She believes most people want to be heard and seen. She wants to help individuals navigate their life stories and create meaning for themselves. She has the heart to work with individuals, couples, young adults, children, and families. She hopes that one day she can specialize in working with law enforcement officers, military men and women, and veterans.

Danica completed her Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology at Azusa Pacific University. Before her time at APU, she graduated from the University of La Verne with her bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in Behavioral Science. Danica is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR can help alleviate distress associate with traumatic events. Danica is also trained in Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), tapping on different pressure points. Without using needles, this form of acupuncture uses the fingertips to stimulate energy points on the body. And can help lower physical and emotional pain.

She enjoys spending time with her pups, off-roading with her family, being active and listening to music in her spare time.
