When working with her clients, Dannika addresses social, emotional, anxiety and depression, relationship and attachment, life transitions, and family conflict.

Dannika is happy to offer virtual sessions on Tuesday evenings and in person sessions on alternating Saturday mornings. Please note that due to a professional conflict of interest, Dannika is unable to see clients affiliated with the Upper Grand District School Board.
