Danette C. Gillespie-Otto, LCSW
Sharing the language of the heart to support our deepest well-being.
I am a therapist, facilitator and public speaker. I obtained a Master's of Social Work from the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis, MO, in 2000, and have been a licensed clinical social worker since 2007. I've worked in community mental health and private practice, diversity training, quality improvement, administration, government, mentoring, higher education and research.
I am an attachment-based therapist who uses the principles of interpersonal neurobiology and cognitive behavioral therapy to support Women and Femmes of Color in their deep healing.
For counseling, I specialize in working with Women and Femmes of Color from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, struggling with relationships, racism, cultural dislocation, workplace concerns, anxiety and history of trauma.
I offer individual psychotherapy, and I am in-network with Kaiser and other insurance companies. Please contact me for information about availability.
