She completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Arizona and earned her Master’s in Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the College of William and Mary, graduating summa cum laude from both programs.

Dannica strives to create a safe space for healing, where individuals feel heard, supported, and valued as human beings.

She tailors her approach to each client’s individual needs, incorporating elements from humanistic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), positive psychology, mindfulness, and solution-focused counseling, to name a few. She also has experience with Family-Based Treatment (FBT), which is an effective approach for treating adolescents with eating disorders.
