Professional statement

Danielle Syslo is a psychotherapist in Los Angeles, CA. She works with Individuals, Couples and Friends. Many of Danielle’s clients come in to address issues of perfectionism, anxiety and relationship struggles.

Danielle provides a supportive space where you can talk about the hard stuff. A space where you can let down your guard without fear of judgment, and be met with compassion and respect.

Although Danielle utilizes a variety of modalities depending on a client’s unique needs, her approach is primarily attachment-focused, trauma-informed, with a psychodynamic perspective. What this means is that Danielle will explore with you how earlier experiences (re: relationships, family dynamics, traumas) may be showing up in your present, and how it may be impacting the way you feel about yourself and your relationships. With this understanding, Danielle can help you to start healing old wounds, create new coping strategies, and support you in making choices that put you in greater alignment with your wellbeing, values and goals.

This approach can help clients to better understand their emotions, motivations and behaviors, to get more in touch with their authentic selves, and to increase overall feelings of self esteem. In their relationships, clients may feel more confident to take risks - like addressing conflict and showing up with more vulnerability, which can lead to deeper intimacy and increased relationship satisfaction.

Danielle earned her MA in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in Los Angeles. She has previously worked at Echo Park Creative Psychology, where she supported aspiring and working creatives, helping them navigate issues specific to the pursuit of becoming a working professional. She has also worked at the Meridian Clinical Group, where she supported Individuals and couples struggling with issues of infidelity, relational and sexual trauma.


Message to clients

I am especially passionate about helping you to nurture, and strengthen your connections to the important people in your life. This is why I offer counseling to friends, in addition to couples and individuals . Science tells us that our relationships can have a huge impact on our mental and physical health. We go to therapy to work on issues with our significant others and family members, but what about other, vital relationships? Namely, what about our friendships?

Friends serve an important role in our lives. They often know our strengths and weaknesses, they help us survive the hardships in life- like romantic breakups or familial distress. They can help us survive disasters and help to create movements. They are even chosen family.

When these relationships are in distress or out of balance, who do we turn to? How do we navigate that? I am excited to create space for your important, platonic relationships (such as friends, roommates or collaborators), to help you manage the distress and get back into connection.
