Danielle Oates


Staff Therapist

Danielle graduated with her Master's in Mental Health Counseling from Cambridge College in Massachusetts. She joins our team with years of experience providing counseling services to individuals of all ages in both outpatient and community-based settings. Danielle has her certification in Child and Needs Strength, is a Parent Advocate for Children with Special Needs and is trained in domestic violence and sexual assault. She additionally has 17 years of customer service in both profit and non-profit organizations. She loves working with children and empowering parents and caregivers to support the social-emotional growth of their children.

Danielle’s desire to help people who are struggling in their lives inspired her to become a counselor. She believes that reaching people and providing a non-judgemental ear can go a long way. “Everyone has a responsibility to lend a hand to support individuals and families who need it.”

Danielle's professional goals align with the mission of A Little Counseling and she is excited to work with individuals dealing with anxiety. “I like that ALC cares and supports individuals and families who desire to live healthier lives. It is a collaborative and informative place to get the tools needed to be more than 'ok'.”

Welcome to the team Danielle!
