Danielle Nowak
LCPC, Clinician and Clinical Director


As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I am humbled to have the opportunity to walk with my clients through part of their life’s journey. In session, I provide a safe, compassionate, and welcoming environment where my clients are unconditionally accepted and through building a strong therapeutic relationship, feel comfortable to be their complete, authentic selves. It takes courage to seek out support and that bravery is a quality to be honored and recognized. Together, I help my clients develop their own unique path towards wellness and healing by utilizing positive coping strategies, increasing emotional and self awareness, working towards positive desired outcomes, and increasing effective communication strategies.

Since graduating in 2016 with a Master’s Degree in Counseling, I have had the privilege of working intensely with both individuals and groups. Counseling is not just my job, it’s a calling and it's the person that I am. I absolutely love what I do and I am continually amazed by my clients! I am passionate about staying current with new counseling strategies and techniques and am determined to continuously challenge myself professionally. In session, I utilize an integrative blend of therapies including EMDR therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Strengths Based Therapy, Expressive Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy.

Danielle belongs to the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC), American Counseling Association (ACA), and the Illinois Mental Health Counselors Association (IMHCA), and the EMDR International Association, as each work to enhance the professional growth and development of members.
