Finally... a Counselor who gets it.

Danielle Sardelle

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, LPCC

Therapy for teens and 20-somethings. I know you may be feeling emotionally raw and vulnerable. And maybe you’re not really sure why. I listen carefully to find your truth so you can finally hear it for yourself. Even high-achievers need someone to talk to at times.

Is it time to find confidence, end a toxic relationship, adjust to family changes, recover from trauma, abuse, self-harm, or cope with depression or anxiety? Are you ready to make choices that help you feel more like the best version of yourself?

I also help parents seeking to improve their relationship with their teen or adult child.

I am truly privileged to join in my client’s journey. I know it may be difficult to face problematic areas in your life. As a skilled listener, I will make sure to be present, compassionate and utilize my training and education to help guide you in the right direction.

I offer a non-judgmental, YOU-centered approach where my office is a safe place for us to talk and find paths to a life that you can feel proud of. I look forward to experiencing this journey with you.

Jessica Wade

Practice Owner, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, LPCC

In the therapy room, I listen before I speak. I ask thoughtful questions and am truly curious to know you deeply, so that I can collaborate with you to create a well-thought, customized and evidence-based plan to help in real and practical ways.

I chose to specialize in my practice so that I can focus on providing top-notch care. I am a firm believer that a jack-of-all-trades is a master of none, which is why I focus on my best work. I believe this is the level of care my clients deserve.

I help those who want to focus on relationships, life transitions, new parents, post-partum adjustment, infertility, as well as depression and anxiety, in Central Ohio. My clients can rely on me to provide truly customized care because of this clarity of purpose.

Professional Profile

In addition to a Clinical Counselor license, I received the highest honors, graduating top of my class in both of my Master’s Degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy and in Christian Counseling. My approach to counseling is faith-embracing (meaning that I can help you explore YOUR own beliefs) and full of optimism for your growth and change. It is based firmly in evidence-based techniques such as Gottman relationship approaches, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing to name a few.

I received my graduate clinical training in one of the nation’s front-runners in the practice of Narrative Therapy, where I gained valuable experience using this strengths-based approach to help couples and adult individuals make the life and relationship changes they desired. My post-graduate advanced training has centered on relationship, family, ethics, and post-partum treatment. While most counselors and social workers take just 1 or 2 classes on these topics, I have devoted my professional career to them.

Prior to branching out into business ownership, I worked in both a group private practice and in community mental health settings. I have continually sought rigorous opportunities to grow and develop as a clinician and as a leader. As a result, I gained the expertise necessary to carve my spot as a trusted resource to other professionals and a consultant to other therapists.
