Danielle Gray LCMHCA
Hello there, I’m Danielle! I am a psychotherapist in Durham, NC, and I am so excited to join you on your journey. After ten years as a social worker, I realized that my favorite part of work was seeing my clients realize their full potential and find their joy, and pursued my degree in counseling. I believe everyone is capable of living a fulfilling and meaningful life, and I am passionate about helping my clients find their path over obstacles to that happiness. I hold an undergraduate degree in Social Work and a Master of Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marywood University. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHCA) in the state of NC.

Changes, Transitions, and Finding Balance
As a former foster child, and social-worker-turned-counselor, I know a lot about changes. Change is a part of life, but that doesn’t make it easy. Sometimes, we make the changes – we get a new job, sign ourselves up for college classes, move to a new city. Sometimes those changes happen to us – our parents divorce, our partner leaves, a new medical diagnosis flips our world upside down. Whatever changes you’re experiencing, or changes you want to make in your life, therapy can help you find your balance and your voice in a life that often feels out-of-control and overwhelming. I’d love to help you with whatever it is that you’re struggling with in life.
Clients I Work With
I work with children 4+, adolescents, adults and couples who are struggling with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, LGBTQIA+ issues, stress management, relationships, boundary setting, and personal development.
How Therapy with Me Can Help
It is a passion of mine to help my clients find the steering wheel of their ships and chart their courses toward happiness. Using a blend of CBT, DBT and person-centered therapy, I’ll help you identify and overcome the challenges in your life, your relationships, and yourself. I focus on your needs and strengths and bring those into session – maybe you express yourself best through drawings, or you need a therapist who can laugh with you. Therapy is not one-size-fits- all, and if you’re looking for a down-to-earth, non-judgmental therapist who will meet you where you’re at and help you un-tangle your thoughts, I’m available for in-person sessions or teletherapy, and offer a free consultation to make sure this feels like the right fit for you.
On a more personal note…
When I’m not in the office, you can find me running or hiking on local trails or watching horror movies with my wife and dogs. I love the use of art as a form of therapy and spend hours each weekend knitting, sewing, and embroidering.
