Clinical Social Work/Therapist
In Chinese philosophy, or Daoism, dao means 'path' or 'the way'. dao also stands for my initials, Danielle Adams O'Malley, LCSW. My background as a producer, socially conscious jewelry designer, mother and clinical social worker has provided me with the life and academic skill set necessary to be your partner as we seek to understand. I provide non-judging, non-pathologizing guidance on your path to increased insight and healing.
I am a trauma-focused therapist. My trainings in EMDR, IFS (Internal Family Systems) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy provide me with tools and understanding to help you navigate and heal from trauma histories including emotional, physical and sexual abuse as well as bullying, neglect and broken attachments.
I help develop healthy coping skills and incorporate meditation to provide balance to the deep therapeutic work. I have helped many clients heal from trauma and associated symptoms as well as develop assertiveness, reduce chronic pain, increase stress-reduction and anger management skills.
While active in private practice, I maintain clinical work at community mental health outpatient centers helping traumatized populations and leading a task force on suicide prevention. I work with individuals across the lifespan.
We will work together at your pace to help you regain an authentic sense of self, improved relationships and a stronger sense of safety. I invite you to begin building the most amazing life you deserve.
