Welcome to Better Health Therapy.

 

I'm Dr. Wischenka ("Dr. Danielle"), and I'm here to support you on your path towards greater well-being and better health.
My fascination with psychology began long before my academic journey—it stemmed from a genuine curiosity about human behavior and a desire to help individuals lead more fulfilling lives. Over the years, this passion has evolved into a dedicated career focused on empowering individuals struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, OCD, and other challenges.
My approach to therapy is deeply rooted in empathy and understanding. I believe in the importance of creating a safe space where clients can explore their thoughts and feelings without judgment.
 
Through my experiences and training, which includes a Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System and internships at renowned institutions like California Pacific Medical Center, I've honed my skills in evidence-based practices like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
At Better Health Therapy, it's not just about treating symptoms—it's about understanding you as a whole person, and fostering meaningful, lasting change.
I'm passionate about staying informed of the latest advancements and evidence-based therapies in psychology and therapy. My work has been supported by grants and scholarships, and I've contributed to research projects exploring topics like sleep quality in OCD treatment outcomes and experiential avoidance 
 
To me, therapy is a collaborative journey, and I consider it a privilege to walk alongside clients as they work towards personal growth and self-discovery. Every individual is unique, and I tailor my approach to meet your specific needs and goals.
I invite you to learn more about my philosophy and approach by watching my video interview , where I share more about my journey and the values that guide my practice.
 
If you're ready to embark on a journey towards Better Health, I'm here to support you every step of the way.
