Holistic Psychotherapy for Total Wellbeing
Dani Rupp, MSW, LSW, CTMH - Community Connections Coordinator & Groups Facilitator Assistant
Hi! I’m Dani.
I'm grateful to play a role within a practice that empowers clients in a safe and empathetic environment, from which they are drawn back to their innate inner knowing.
As a masters-level licensed social worker, I recognize that naming emotions and struggles, as well as identifying healthy coping skills to work through them, are crucial components to holistic wellness. From this understanding, I provide support to the practice that helps to connect folks within the community with a therapeutic environment that upholds the inherent dignity and worth of every person and that also offers a creative and unique approach for each child, adolescent, family and individual.
I am a PA Licensed Social Worker with a master's degree in social work from West Chester University. During my training and for several years after graduation I provided therapy as an outpatient and mobile therapist for children, adolescents and families in the office, homes, community and school at a non-profit agency in Chester County.
During this time I became certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I have witnessed children and adolescents who have experienced trauma progress from not being able to talk about their trauma to being able to write full trauma narratives about their lives. It is truly inspiring and I am honored to support the team in a way that offers greater healing and growth opportunities for individuals and families within our community.
Recently I spent 18 months working with International Justice Mission (IJM) as an Aftercare Fellow working with survivors of sex trafficking in South Asia. My main project was researching, writing and editing a comprehensive & culturally adapted training manual on Trauma Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for clinicians. I also organized and participated in Trauma Informed Care (TIC) Trainings and helped with other programming to support survivors. This fellowship was a wonderful intersection of many of my passions- justice, social work, faith, travel and service.
As the world continues to change, and therapy with it, I am committed to providing support to the practice that allows for clients to feel well cared for from the initial point of contact straight through to discharge.
In my spare time, I enjoy running/hiking, and sitting down with coffee and a good book.
I wish you well on your healing and wellness journey!
