Biography

​Danielle worked as a research assistant in the Women’s Health Sciences Division of the National Center for PTSD at the VA Boston Healthcare System. During her two years at her position, she worked on a randomized clinical trial examining the effectiveness and implementation of a trauma-informed and patient-centered, counseling intervention for women who experience intimate partner violence (IPV). Her primary research interests are in studying and identifying mechanisms of therapeutic change to better understand treatment effectiveness among trauma-exposed adults with the ultimate goal of implementing evidence-based, person-centered treatments in clinical settings to increase treatment accessibility and usage. Danielle is also particularly interested in interpersonal trauma and women’s mental health.
