Danielle D. Waite (she/her), LCMHCA, CRC
Outpatient Psychotherapist in Midtown
Hello! My name is Danielle Waite (she/her) and I am an outpatient psychotherapist at Three Oaks Behavioral Health and Wellness in Raleigh. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (#A17860) and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (#596925). I earned my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and my Master of Science in Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
I use a collaborative and strengths-based approach to counseling as I firmly believe we all possess inherent strengths that can be used to achieve our goals. As a therapist, it is important to me to create a validating, nonjudgmental environment where clients feel safe to heal, explore, and learn. I specialize in providing therapy for adults navigating complex family dynamics, experiencing relationship challenges, and processing grief. I enjoy helping clients interested in identity exploration, as I believe being authentic helps us find peace. I also have experience working with people healing from the impact of trauma.
I feel passionately about working with clients who seek to gain insight into how past experiences impact current behaviors and ways of thinking. I use a psychodynamic approach to help clients use this insight to facilitate positive change and increase self-compassion. I believe that the quality of our relationships strongly contributes to mental health and use interpersonal therapy and attachment theory to help clients achieve relationship-related goals. Additionally, I have experience using cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness practices. I welcome people of all backgrounds and identities into the therapy space.
When I’m not in the therapy space you might find me trying a new coffee shop, cooking some Italian food, or spending time in nature.
