About Me

Danielle West, MA LPC EMDR CIT is a trauma/ Dissociative Disorder consultant, specialist and passionate advocate for a mental health paradigm shift. She has been working with trauma and dissociation for decades, experientially and academically. She is driven by her conviction that the current psychiatric model is generally failing to treat mental health and instead enabling a consumer market that is dependent on reductionist explanations for a simple business model. Her practice focuses on using a state-of the-art treatment for mental health disorders. Her cutting-edge therapy focuses on the brain’s neurobiology, and the energy waves that activate our DNA thus influencing thought, behavior, mental illness, and disease. She is also EMDR certified and is a Consultant in Training, mentored by the only Shapiro certified provider in Texas, Dr. Christie Sprowls PsyD and Farnsworth Lobenstine .
