Danielle Adler Witchel, LCSW


People come to therapy for many different reasons. Some of my clients have struggled with anxiety, depression, loss and grief, questions about their identity and difficult work and family situations. Some clients are having a hard time with life transitions or are unable to create the relationships that they are wanting in their lives. There are many reasons why people come to therapy and the process of therapy differs for every person. If there are areas where you feel stuck or overwhelmed, psychotherapy can help you to better understand your situation and make positive changes. Therapy brings into awareness issues that may be weighing on you psychologically but may be hidden from view. This process of unveiling creates space and freedom to make different choices.

How does therapy help?

If you are looking for a way to better understand yourself and to have a greater sense of freedom when making decisions, therapy may be a helpful process for you.  If you are seeking greater intimacy in relationships and satisfaction in your life, therapy can help.  Change is never guaranteed with therapy but, over the past 25 years, I have witnessed that people’s lives are transformed in subtle and dramatic ways. Therapy is a powerful process for people able to invest the time, money, and energy. Through this work, people often make significant life changes, deepen their relationships, develop a strong sense of grounding and confidence in who they are, and come to terms with challenges old and new.


I work with people who are ready to learn more deeply about themselves—how they have gotten to where they are, and how they want to move forward in their lives.  In the beginning I am listening carefully as my clients and I learn about their current day experiences and their history. Together we are trying to make space for the full range of memories, feelings, associations and experiences. Over time, I become more active and together we work to integrate what we have learned.  I use Modern Psychoanalytic concepts to guide my work but make use of Cognitive Behavioral techniques as needed.  I work relationally—paying close attention to what is happening in the room between us.  I attend closely to feelings that emerge and think of feelings like a highlighter underlining the aspects of the conversation that we should pay particular attention to as things unfold.  Individual therapy allows us to dive deeply into understanding who you are.  Group therapy allows us to explore relational dynamics and patterns in the room as they are unfolding in front of us.
