Danielle Huscher, BA
I believe that everyone can benefit from attending therapy at least once within their lifetimes. Attending therapy offers the opportunity for you to share your story and to feel supported and seen for who you truly are. Therapy can be challenging and can push you to reconsider detrimental cognitive beliefs and with time, therapy can lead to a period of intense personal growth and peace of mind.
As a therapist, my focus is two-fold. To acknowledge and heal the previous hurt you’ve
experienced throughout your lifetime while also teaching you the skill sets to be able to address future periods of pain. I want my clients to deepen their self-awareness so that they can strive towards self-sufficiency and cognitive health.
I specialize in treatment for adults who are experiencing depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD). My primary objective as a therapist is to build trust and respect with my clients so that they feel comfortable exploring vulnerable and difficult topics with me. I practice trauma informed care and I utilize several different psychological approaches such as cognitive behavioral treatment (CBT), psychoanalysis and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) that I tailor to each individual and their specific needs.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and am a second-year student in the University
of Washington’s Master’s in Social Work program. I previously worked for a restorative justice program run by the Municipal Court of Seattle and this is my fourth year as a volunteer for the National Suicide Prevention Line. I spent a year and a half traveling across Europe, Asia and Africa in which I was able to learn about a variety of different cultures, values and views that differ from my own. If you believe that I may be a good fit as a therapist for you, feel free to reach out to schedule a consultation with me.
Congratulations on taking the first step towards this next chapter in your life.
