Hello, I’m Danielle Hagedorn!

I love helping children, adolescents, adults, families, and the LGBTQ population work through life’s challenges and struggles.  I strive to meet my clients where they’re at and work together with them to develop treatment plans that achieve their goals. I believe that therapy is a collaborative effort between the therapist and the client, regardless of the client’s age.

I have over 25 years of professional experience, pre and post-licensure, working with children, teens, families, and incarcerated individuals. I’m a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and a National Certified Counselor (NCC-NBCC); trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Play Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); and I use a variety of additional therapeutic models including, but not limited to Solution Focused and Person-Centered therapies. In my practice, I apply a strengths-based approach for all my clients, as I have found that each client I have worked with has more to offer than they realize


“I liked how they gave me strategies and not just one but many so I could choose what I liked and didn’t like!”
CFAUSD Student
School-based mental health services allow a child to receive much needed services regularly without the inconvenience of scheduling around after school activities or parents having to take time off work.
SBMH Mental Health Therapist
As a therapist, having the School Based Mental Health available for students is very important in many aspects. School is an area where children spend a great amount of their time and the schools are able to work with the therapists to help in any areas that they may be struggling in.  The schools have all been very open with working with me as a therapist and the children are able to still get services that are needed for either home or school issues without having to miss more time at school since the therapy is able to be done right at the school settings.  Being able to provide this service for families is a great asset for everyone involved.
School Based Mental Health Therapist
As a parent having the School Based Mental Health available has been very helpful with my child.  The process has gone smoothly from the initial contact to being able to choose a therapist that may work best with my child to the therapist working directly with my child.  This is also helpful that they are able to come directly to my child at the school so that they are missing less school and I as a parent need to miss less work as well.  Overall the whole experience has been a positive one for both myself and my child.
“The group was very good, and it calmed me down a lot. When you feeling stressed this class is a time to just relax and think about everything and it soothes your mind.”   “I liked that every time I needed to relax or talk about something I would not get judged that place was a free spot.”   “Being in the relax group really helped me become calm, and know what to do in times when I’m overwhelmed. The Relax Group also helped me focus on everyday tasks, and the group gave some incredibly good advice :)”
Student feedback about a Relax Group
You made this process super easy and helped me every step of the way to ensure that my student is set up for success. In following up with me and making sure we were taken care of shows that you care about the students and their wellbeing. Thank you so much for making this as easy as it was, I truly appreciate everything!
