Meet Danni

Hi there, I’m Helen “Danni” Whitehouse.

Now that you’ve decided to learn more about therapy, I want to help you figure out if therapy with me might be a good fit for you and what you’re looking for.

The clients who see the most change when working with me are ready to “go there,” even though it might be scary to do so.  They’ve decided that the potential for real change makes therapy worth trying.  They actively participate -inside and outside of sessions- because they know that coming to see me is only part of the process.

People generally choose to engage in therapy with me because they feel like I get it, because I believe them, and because I don’t judge them.

For many of my clients, they feel like my office is one of the only spaces they can really talk about what’s happened and what’s going on in their lives.

They come because even though we talk about things that aren’t always super fun, we get stuff done and they start to see things get better. 


Many of the people I work with are experiences some of the following:

  • On the outside, it looks like they have it all together. On the inside, though, it feels all wrong. They want their inside-selves to match their outside-selves. 
  • They’ve noticed a pattern of what they call “bad choices,” and they no longer trust themselves. They second guess everything.
  • They have low self-esteem and confidence, don’t think they’re good enough, or don’t believe they deserve more.
  • They’re having difficulties in their current relationship because of the “baggage” that keeps following them.
  • They overthink everything, which means they have problems focusing and can’t get a good night’s sleep.
  • They feel “on edge” with anxiety or depression.
  • They feel stuck and can’t seem to “let go and move on.”

I have a special interest in helping people who have been impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or are adults who experienced some form of neglect or abuse as children.


I help people learn how to figure out what’s happened and how they’ve gotten stuck in these cycles so that they can begin living their best lives. 

Through therapy, you can learn how to begin trusting yourself and others again and be confident about who you are and what you deserve.  You can finally figure out how to leave the baggage behind so that you can enjoy the relationships with the people in your life. You can say goodbye to the non-stop hamster wheel inside your brain, and hello to being able to get stuff done and a good night’s sleep. 



What makes me qualified to practice counseling?

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Texas (License #58500, Helen D Whitehouse). I’m also a certified EMDR therapist through the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA). This means that I’ve had to show that I’m competent and know what I’m doing in order to practice therapy. It also means that I continue to seek out education and training opportunities that are relevant to my practice as a therapist.

Where did I go to school?

Master of Social Work, Washington University in St. Louis

Bachelor of Arts, Child & Family Studies & Minor in Sociology, Berea College
