I truly believe that every person has the resources inside of them for healing, love and acceptance, and deserves a life of happiness and success. My commitment is to assist you in experiencing changed lives through finding balance and understanding your inner resources.
As a caring and creative counselor, Nina Danhorn MS LPC NCC encourages awareness through self-exploration and acceptance. She believes that sometimes we get or feel stuck in the black and white, rather than finding balance in the shades of color. It is by knowing and accepting ourselves and taking back our power, that we find peace in being. She loves helping facilitate healing to adults, adolescents and kids who experiences trauma or loss, and need support on their journey to a more balanced and happy life they truly deserve. Using an in-depth approach, Nina supports parents as well as children needing help in discovering and welcoming their own true self. She is passionate about providing support and encouragement to women and couples who are struggling with the pain of fertility challenges and infertility, pregnancy and early infant loss, adoption loss. She helps women dealing with postpartum depression and PADS (post adoption depression). She supports families who complete their family through adoption, and/or foster care. While guided by an existential approach and in addition to traditional "talk therapy", Nina Danhorn MS LPC NCC utilizes experiential therapies of expressive arts and trauma focused EMDR. She combines creative arts, play therapy, sandplay, music, writing/journaling and other creative mediums to foster deep personal growth, to help you gain access to your inner resources for healing & clarity on your path to healthy living. In complement, she uses Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Zones of Regulation to help clients gain proper skills in order to achieve and maintain the life they truly deserve.
