Therapist in Walnut Creek, California, Danielle Hetrick, LMFT

Danielle Hetrick, LMFT

I see therapy as an invitation to be curious in how you show up in the world – what’s working or not working and empowering yourself with choices to transform how you relate to yourself and others. It is an honor and privilege to participate in this process. Entering therapy can bring up feelings of vulnerability and can feel scary which is why I find our relationship so important. I refer to it as gel factor based on ingredients that promote a sense of safety and trust; feeling seen, heard, and respected without judgment. Empowering yourself with self awareness promotes choice points in how you want to proceed in your life with meaning and purpose.

I have spent the last 17 years passionately teaching and providing therapy primarily using Cognitive Behavioral therapy and Dialectic Behavioral therapy. This process enables us to identify tools to help you cope and thrive in your life. Prior to PCPA I worked in a hospital setting both Inpatient and Outpatient with adolescents, adults and families. I have significant experience working with clients experiencing Depression/ Bipolar symptoms, Anxiety disorders, PTSD and addiction and have helped them work through trauma, grief and loss, relational issues and low self esteem.
