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 are 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 help clients dealing with trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, and angry outbursts. I enjoy working with clients suffering from a variety of personality disorders such as Borderline, Histrionic, Narcissistic, and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorders. I also offer Christian Counseling to those that are wanting a faith-based perspective in their healing. I have a passion for working with children, adolescents, and college students. Anxiety and depression are real issues that young people face, especially during major life events and transitions. I enjoy providing the tools and support they need to work through their emotions in order to help them succeed in all areas of their lives. In addition, I know that oftentimes parents need extra support and direction as their children and loved ones sort through their struggles. I not only treat the client but also help the family to find resources and skills to assist their child.
I have over 25 years of professional experience, pre and post-licensure, working with children, teens, families, and incarcerated individuals. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services Leadership from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, with concentrations in Child and Adolescent Counseling & Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counseling, from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. During graduate school, I completed a year-long internship at a residential addictions treatment facility for men. I was also selected as a 2017 fellowship recipient for the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) Minority Fellowship Program-Youth in recognition of my continuous service to minority youth. Following graduate school, I provided outpatient counseling and then individual and family counseling at a day treatment facility for children and adolescents at risk for negative outcomes.
I’m licensed as a Professional Counselor and Substance Abuse Counselor in the State of Wisconsin. 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 look forward to working with you!
