Danica Mitchell, LCSW

As a therapist, I strive to create a collaborative atmosphere where people of all ages, genders, expressions, and orientations feel welcomed and comfortable. I work with individuals and couples whose goals are to better understand themselves, understand one another, or overcome various barriers to happiness. I specialize in working with those experiencing sexual issues and also work with issues related to anxiety, depression, self-esteem, stress management, and relationships.

I utilize an eclectic approach, as every person is different and complex. The modalities and approaches I use include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness techniques, and Strengths-Based approaches.

My goal is to provide a safe and welcoming place for you as you take steps to improve your life and find your own path towards fulfillment and satisfaction. Please call or message our office today with any questions, or to schedule your first appointment.

Patient Testimonials

Danica saved my marriage! We started seeing Danica once a week a few years back (there were some rough mornings) BUT it was the best decision I have made in my adult life. My wife and I were having issues communicating and we had lost our “I’s” in our relationship. Through working with Danica, we were able to get through a very difficult time and come out on the other side! It’s been 3 years and we are happily married with our first child. I cannot recommend Peaceful Way Psychology enough to anyone who tells me they are having troubles with their significant others.

Danica is an absolutely incredible therapist. When I first started working with her, I was a very different person. My outlook on the world was different. Danica once said that therapy is 10% sessions and 90% what you do out of sessions. With Danica’s grace and assistance in that 10%, I was able to use her guidance and tools to make the 90% even better. Danica offers strong and helpful advice, she listens and helps narrow issues and problems, and provides clarity that lets her clients help themselves to grow into the person they want to become. I owe a lot to Danica, and for that, I will always recommend her.

Making an appointment to see Danica was the best decision I’ve made! Imagine talking to someone the way you talk to your best friend, but with the degrees to actually know how to answer your questions and help you work thru your problems. She made me feel validated and heard, and since seeing her I feel equipped to handle things that used to paralyze me with fear and anxiety. I’m so grateful for Danica and her help!
