On a day that was the pinnacle of our distress, Danell was there and from that day forward we have been given tools to use towards the renewal of my husband’s mind and even his heart. Our family was restored and brought to levels of healing that I never dreamt possible.

The Schweitzers

We’ve tried other counselors in the past, and always ended up feeling disappointed and frustrated. Danell is extremely gifted in the way that she relates to her clients. Her gentle nature and approach would put even the most apprehensive person at ease. It is extremely apparent that she does this because she genuinely loves people and wants to help them. There is no judgment or condemnation, only love and compassion.

S.J & C.J.

The first session I had with you, was life changing. There were so many things that had happened in my life that were very painful, however you have helped me to receive healing. I left that first session feeling there was a purpose to my life and that I had a calling in my life


How amazing to reverse the words (negative beliefs) and rebuke them and to (gain) freedom back and finally live the life intended, victoriously


I was at a place of darkness (and I am still trying to heal) when I sought help from Danell. I was able to truly uncover the cause of my destructive thinking. I was able to pinpoint the triggers that kept me ‘stuck’ and ‘unhappy’.


We have experienced, on more than one occasion. Reflecting on them, my husband and I were and felt truly blessed. This was at a time of utter chaos in our lives as my husband was undergoing breast cancer and our lives were in turmoil.


You have given me inspiration and peace and helped to strengthen me. There is nothing I can ever do to express my gratitude for all that you have done to help my family.


Thank you for giving your time and stirring me up. I felt a release to move into new purpose for my life. Thank you for encouraging me forward


Since our meeting you have created a huge impact upon my life. You have spoken words that intrigue and persist within me. You have awakened in me a hunger and a yearning that I didn’t know existed.
