Professional statement

Danielle Klapper is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist located in New York, NY. Danielle works with adults and young adults who suffer from anxiety, depression, or grief after a loss. Many of her clients hope to unpack traumatic events and learn healthier coping skills. She also supports individuals who are going through major life transitions to make sense of the change, find peace, and move forward.

As a Creative Arts Therapist, Danielle utilizes various art modalities to help clients open their minds to their emotions. By giving clients a space to be creative, she curates an environment for inquisition, healing, and processing through difficult memories. She also uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approaches with clients, which gives clients the tools they need to identify and replace negative thought patterns that impact their mood. When first starting with a new client, Danielle collaborates with them to write out their mental health goals and the steps necessary to get there.

Danielle earned her Master’s degree in Creative Arts Therapy at Nazareth College. She has experience offering mental health treatment across different settings and is dedicated to a strengths-based approach. She believes that each person is unique and is worthy of unique attention, treatment planning, and care in therapy.

Message to clients

Life can have its challenging moments, especially during this time of uncertainty and quick changes. Throughout our life we develop methods of coping that, at one time, perhaps helped us to survive, but now prevent us from ultimately thriving. This can manifest in our relationship patterns and our mood which can cause disruption in work, love, family, friendships and a healthy identity. I am here to help support you through these changes as well find new ways to create balance and better manage the stressors influencing your daily life.

We will work together person-centered and strength-based perspective to maximize your strengths, explore challenges, and begin to understand and process the impact life experiences have had on how you navigate your life.

The hard work of therapy will pay off by helping you build tools, notice connections, and manage stressors in your daily life. You will be able to live the life you want, have more fulfilling relationships, and enjoy your daily life. Call today to set up your free 15 minute consultation.
