Danielle Leal


6 years of experience

Hello everyone! My name is Danielle and I am a licensed therapist in Texas. I have 6 years of experience in counseling. I am originally from Pflugerville, Texas and am currently located in San Antonio, Texas. I am an alumni of Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio where I completed my bachelors and masters degrees in 2014 and 2016. I pride myself on accepting clients of all ages and backgrounds. I specialize in anxiety, depression, trauma, and mood disorders. I am passionate about helping clients find peace and regulation in their lives despite the daily struggles of having a mental health diagnosis. I am a strengths-based practitioner and help clients realize their capabilities and build themselves up towards empowerment. I have found that everyone has their own unique mental health journey and I take it as a privilege and a blessing to be able to walk along side you as you grow.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Clients can expect to gain knowledge through psycho education and practical coping skills to use outside our sessions. I tailor each of my sessions to client’s wants and needs.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Feminist Theory Driven Therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strength is looking at the client as a whole person. Even in couples therapy, the clients are two whole people adding to a relationship. I look at the person’s mental and emotional health but also their environment, family, systematic oppressors, spirituality and lack thereof, and traumatic factors. All of these affect the decisions we make and the way we feel. My goal is to build on the strengths clients already have.
