About Danielle

I have worked in the mental health field for 13 years. I've worked with patients that range in a multitude of disorders and diagnosis. Although I've only worked in facilities such as residential (11 yrs), group home (8 mos) & psych hospitals (1 yr), I am looking into home health care for a more personal, relatable experience. I've held managerial positions in this field that I feel have strengthened my abilties to communicate effectively and empathize accordingly with the patients that are in my care.
