Danielle Bartlett, M.Ed., LPC-Intern, is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern under the supervision of Kirby Schroeder, LPC-S, LMFT-S. With warmth, humor, gentleness, and the ability to be “real”, Danielle connects deeply with young people who may feel unheard or unworthy. Her experience working with children and teens in the foster care system as well as young people on the autism spectrum has allowed her to understand that traumatic experiences comes in all shapes and sizes, that no individual or family is the same, and that all are worthy of true compassion, connection and acceptance.
Danielle approaches therapy using family systems and attachment styles, interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness and lots of play (yes, even with adults!). With her, you can expect your therapy space to be safe for learning and exploration, and where you are fully and compassionately heard and seen. In session, she is able to see what your strengths are, and likes to draw them out via some kind of expressive modality, such as art, movement, writing, nature, etc. To her, this solidifies what someone won't (or is unable to) say in words - it is evidence that the mind and body are connected and that deep down, their expression is saying something that matters and is worthy of care and attention.
Danielle’s education includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Child Development from Texas Christian University, where she studied under the late and great Dr. Karen Purvis, creator of Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TRBI®). Her draw and compassion towards those experiencing familial, developmental and attachment related trauma led her to move to Austin in 2010 to work as an Applied Behavioral Analysis therapist with children on the autism spectrum, a pre-school teacher, and a part-time nanny for numerous families. In 2014, she realized her skills and love for nurturing children and their families would be best shared with the world as a child, adolescent and family therapist. After earning her Master of Education in Human Developmental Counseling from Vanderbilt University, she returned to Austin to plant her roots and grow into the therapist she is meant to be.
