Danielle Balocca, LICSW
I enjoy being able to listen to the pain of others and sometimes be the first person to witness their pain and validate their feelings.
I truly believe in the importance of therapists working with clients in a way that is sexual trauma-informed. While working in my role as a counselor at a rape crisis center, I have interacted with many professionals who do not meet this criteria, and my hope is to change that.
I hope that new professionals can always keep open minds and continually be working to take care of themselves as they work to support the growth and health of their clients.
