Danielle Chen, LMFT, RPT, ATR-P

Danielle is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Registered Play Therapist, and Art Therapist with a provisional certificate. She earned a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mercer University and Master of Science in Art Therapy from Florida State University. Currently, she is in the process of earning her doctorate in Art Therapy at Florida State University. Danielle is researching how artistic expression aids in understanding the complex experiences of mixed/multicultural individuals and how therapists/researchers can process their own identity through response art. Danielle is an accomplished artist with a background in neuropsychology, business, and earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a concentration in Studio Art from Georgia State University. In addition to her degrees and certifications, she has Gottman I & II training in couples’ therapy. Danielle’s clients are from various cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. As a mixed/multicultural individual, she brings awareness to the complexities of identity. She works with an array of ages, diagnoses, and labels. Danielle not only utilizes evidence-based client-centered theories, but also integrates playful and creative art interventions. She believes that holistic healing requires the creativity of play/art therapy techniques in therapy to help express emotional experiences that are too complex or abstract to verbalize.
