Hello, and welcome to my page!  My name is Daniela, and I am committed to being culturally aware, and inclusive with diverse communities through mental health. I’m passionate about serving the community through integrated healthcare practices like dance, art, play, and talk therapy. I have experience working with families, couples, and individuals in creating the change they desire. I’m also enthusiastic about working with the youth in supporting their life goals. Just know I’m here to listen and support you in whatever season you find yourself.

 

My Approach & Values

Daniela is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist who cares about the inclusivity and well-being of the community. She enjoys helping and supporting individuals, families, and couples to achieve their therapeutic and lifetime goals.

Daniela previously worked as a program coordinator for Fresno Unified School District, providing academic and social support and guidance to adolescents, teachers, staff, and parents/guardians. In addition, she worked as a therapist/intern in a counseling center. She assisted the underserved who experienced depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), grief, and other significant life experiences. She incorporated dialectical behavior therapy, play therapy, music, art, structural therapy, solution-focused therapy, and cognitive behavior Therapy.

Daniela is a Fresno Native, born and raised. She graduated from Fresno State with her bachelor’s in psychology and a minor in Spanish. She also graduated from Capella University with her master’s in science in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Daniela is dedicated to bringing compassionate and directive care to children/adolescents, adults, and families. Daniela acknowledges the importance of being culturally competent and how crucial it is to understand and integrate cultural practices and backgrounds to better understand and empathize with every client. She believes that everyone has different thought processes and views on what they would like their lives to look like. Daniela hopes to create an exciting and safe space where you can feel comfortable talking about experiences, thoughts, and emotions.

Daniela emphasizes working from a Systemic Perspective seeking to address people not solely on an individual level but through the interactions with social surroundings, including relationships, family of origin, society, and culture. Furthermore, Daniela feels that every client is only and is excited to get to know every client and integrate a unique approach of therapeutic models and strategies that best fit. A few models she has utilized in treatment are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
