depth psychologically oriented
Hi there, I'm Dr. Danielle Alexander.
I’m a light-hearted introvert who loves to explore the mysteries of the unconscious psyche, especially the somatic unconscious.
I help individuals attune to the unspoken language of their bodies, aiding them to navigate challenging transitions and integrate past traumatic experiences. I help facilitate the movement of the soul, moving from a felt sense of fixity to a felt sense of flow and connection.
I have my Master's degree in Depth Psychology with an emphasis in Jungian and Archetypal studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am currently writing my Ph.D. dissertation on the intersection of depth/archetypal psychology, somatics, and chronic illness.
I am also a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and host of The Embodied Podcast.
I am currently in training to become a Jungian analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of New England as a Stage I training candidate.
While here in the cosmic soup with you, I have dedicated my life to the exploration and construction of the bridges between science and the sacred, the inner and outer, and the mind and body.
areas of focus
Depth Psychology, Archetypal Psychology, Somatic Experiencing, Dream Tending, Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, Grief and Loss, Vocation, Transitions, Eating Disorders, Relationships.
My intention is to offer mental, emotional, and spiritual healing to individuals through depth psychological, archetypal, and somatic experiencing methodologies.
Imagine your current life situation, exactly wherever you are, as the starting point in your journey.
When you look at the world in this way, your current situation becomes a universal invitation encouraging you to participate in what the world has to offer you.
You recognize that the call is already there; you just might not see it beyond the pain, the suffering, and the struggle.
In other words, your life, as it is now, is a reflection of your immediate calling, your starting point.
You don’t have to look anywhere else.
The invitation is there... to be you, to reconnect with you, little by little, every day.
By bridging unconscious material into consciousness, this gives you the strength and resilience to embody the most authentic and expressed version of yourself that both you AND the world deserves.
My passion for this work, paired with my honest, validating, and judgement free approach helps you feel safe enough to take that next step towards wholeness.
I will be your guide and your mirror of compassion and empathy because I deeply believe that everybody on this earth serves a purpose, and it is an injustice to not understand and be able to embody your true strengths and gifts.
"Somatic experiencing changed the way I navigate the world because I now know how to meet and soothe my inner child.
There were deep rooted traumas and heavy feelings within this scared child and Danielle helped me peel back the layers to determine what I needed but didn't have and how to give that child what she needs.
I think what has improved in my life in my work with Danielle is setting and enforcing boundaries.
She's helped me understand the underlying reasons of why I have those boundaries but most importantly they are valid and deserve respect."
"I’ve done conventional talk psychotherapy (CBT), and it was helpful, but since I’ve started working with Danielle, not only is it helpful, but I feel more safe, calm, and better resourced within. I’ve had way more growth with her in 6 sessions than I had over 14 sessions with a CBT approach. If you’re looking to work hard and go deep, you must work with her! I feel more secure, and the compassion for my self has grown immensely. I feel more calm and steady than I've ever felt in my life!
Thank you Danielle for creating that space for me!
