Danielle Scarsella-Gonia, LMFT

A Note from Danielle:

Welcome to Twin Lakes Counseling!
I'm so glad you are here.

I provide therapeutic services from a place of compassion and genuine desire to have a positive impact in my community. I don't just want to help people, and I don't feel like anyone needs "fixing." But life is so complicated and having a guide as we figure things out can help. 

My goal is to be that guide for my clients as they become the best version of themselves that they can be so that that they can get back out into life feeling empowered, free, and more alive. Everyone has strengths to capitalize on and everyone needs help uncovering what is truly holding them back. Wherever this journey takes us, through the highs and lows, I will be there to guide you, listen to you, and encourage you towards actualizing your inner-most goals.

Pronouns: She/Her

Danielle grew up in the Pacific Northwest area and is passionate about serving her community. For as long as Danielle can recall, she has possessed a curiosity for understanding what motivates people and what contributes to feeling fulfilled in life. Interested in human behavior and relationahips, Danielle pursued her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA - Go Zags! After graduating, Danielle worked in research and the nonprofit sector developing valuable skills which she would later translate into her profession in the mental health field. Driven by a desire to be a positive influence amongst broken systems, Danielle pursued her Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from The Family Institute at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.

Today, as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Clinical Supervisor, Danielle still relies on her natural curiosity to lean into systemic questions and explore challenging family and relational dynamics in the therapy room. Being compassionate, listening intently, and asking the right questions at the right time quickly became Danielle's strengths. By taking the time and being intentional from the get-go, Danielle is able to start off the collaborative work with her clients on the most effective foot. The welcoming, kind, and judgement-free space that Danielle is able to cultivate with her clients in conjunction with her methodical, direct, and solution-focused therapy allows her clients to move through the therapeutic process fully and authentically knowing they have a strong guide by their side. 

Danielle specializes in working with clients who are facing relationship challenges, sex and intimacy issues, eating disorders, anxiety, and ADHD. In support of her holistic, thematic, and integrative approach to therapy, Danielle finds models such as Internal Family Systems (IFS), Integrative Problem-Centered Metaframeworks (IPCM), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to be most impactful. 

With Danielle you fill find someone who greatly respects your bravery for showing up, your commitment to the work, and your willingness to be authentic. She will also value your time as she works to provide you with insights and tools to carry out into the world. Danielle loves the time she spends with her clients, and while she knows we all go through seasons of needing extra help from professionals like herself, ultimately she wants to see her clients into a new season where they feel empowered to take on the world themselves with their newly discovered and stengthened skill sets and perspectives.
