Danielle Bocchino is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over fifteen years of clinical experience working with children, adolescents and adults struggling with a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and adjustment problems. Her work goes beyond the targeting of certain symptoms and instead aims to help people find meaning and purpose in their lives and strengthen their relationship to themselves and others.
Danielle is a native New Yorker, having grown up in Brooklyn as well as landing her first job here as a public school counselor. She has worked in both the healthcare and education fields serving individuals and families privately as well as in schools and counseling centers in New York and Georgia. In addition to maintaining a small private practice, Danielle serves as school counselor for an independent K-12 school in Brooklyn.
Additionally, she has a dance/theatre background, understanding the creative process, which lends well to being a skilled child therapist. Danielle incorporates play and the arts in therapy as needed at any age level. Post graduate studies with the New York Institute for Psychotherapy Training (NYIPT) provided a solid foundation for Danielle's work with children and adolescents. With a keen understanding of her young clients' developmental needs, she also consults with parents to facilitate the intellectual, social, and emotional growth of their children.
Danielle’s theoretical frame of reference is psychodynamic, developmental psychotherapy; however, she uses a variety of treatment approaches such as cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy to meet the specific needs of her clients.
