About Danielle Goldblatt

Danielle Goldblatt has over 18 years of experience providing psychotherapy to individuals, families and groups.  She is a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers.

 

Danielle started her career as a Child and Family Worker at the Children's Aid Society of Toronto.  Building on this experience, Danielle worked as a Child and Family Clinician for over seven years.  In this capacity, she practiced family therapy, focusing on a multitude of issues faced by children and families, including dealing with challenging behaviour, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), and working with families where children and adolescents suffer from issues such as anxiety, depression, school issues, bullying, low self-esteem and parent-child conflict.  

 

Danielle has also run multiple successful parenting groups, as well as groups for children who experience problems with anger and anxiety.

 

Trained in the delivery of the SNAP program developed through the Child Development Institute, Danielle has led groups for young boys with ADHD and other behavioural issues. Additional training includes trauma treatment and the family therapy externship at the George Hull Centre for children.  Danielle has extensive training in brief counselling which she has practiced with both individuals and families.  In addition, Danielle is training in Emotion Focussed Therapy, level one, and will be completing the level two training in 2016.

 

In addition to her private practice, Danielle is currently providing individual and family therapy through a Community Health Centre in Toronto.  Her work with prenatal women and postpartum adjustment has become a particular area of interest in the past few years.
