The business was founded in 2016 by Danelle Devi-Hollenbeck, LMHC after undertaking training in EMDR. It was during this training I realized trauma or PTSD looks different to different people and it presents as anxiety, depression, BPD, other mood disorders, and substance abuse. EMDR is life-changing! It treats so many things, not just PTSD. I also use TFCBT, Narrative Therapy, Art therapy, CBT, ACT, Interpersonal, among other therapies to treat various mental illnesses.
Danelle is also specialized in treating couples using various couples treatments or her main go-to, Gottman therapy. She helps couples navigate through infidelity and has the couples do activities to get over the infidelity and reconnect emotionally and physically. She helps couples to learn to trust each other. If your problem is you feel stuck, argue a lot, or don’t seem to share the same interests, she helps you navigate through this with exercises, interviews, identifying needs, and helping you two to implement them.
Another component of The Anxiety and Trauma Service of Pinellas is that we alo provide grief counseling. The counseling is not just for the loss of a human loved one, but also for the loss of your furry babies. Danelle (who is actively involved in French Bulldog rescue) knows the mourning and depression that comes from losing a human and animals. She is here to be empathetic, compassionate, and guide you through your stages of grief.
We also treat substance abuse as we have often found addiction is a direct relation of traumatic events that have happened in one’s life. You must not be actively using in order to receive treatment.
