My Story:

My name is Danielle Eisenberg and I have been a counselor with Lutheran Counseling Center since December of 2019. I live in Rockville Centre. I am a huge animal person, as I believe animals are LOVE. I have a dog named Snuggles who is my best friend. 

Hobbies and Interests:

I love traveling-and miss it greatly at this time. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I enjoy listening to music. I am a big Oldies and 90’s fan. I enjoy engaging in self-care through meditation, yoga, going to the beach, and being outdoors in the sun.

During the pandemic I have become quite fond of the ‘Oculus Quest 2’, where I practice meditation, engage in fun and exciting exercise, and can escape the confines of my apartment by feeling as if I am on vacation in a beautiful and calming place. 

Favorite Quote:

“Dreams are often most profound when they seem the most crazy.” Sigmund Freud.

I love working with dreams and symbols. They are the key to our unconscious, all of the aspects of our lives going on outside of our awareness. You can discover so much about yourself through your dreams and they can help you work through your conflicts. The crazier your dreams seem, the richer they are.

Why I became a mental health counselor:

I love learning about the human mind, and I love helping people to become the fullest version of themselves. Seeing how much therapy can help transform your life and the lives around you is a gift from God, and a truly beautiful thing. My favorite part of the job is the therapeutic connection that is built between my patients and myself. My full heart goes into my relationship with each patient. It is a very warm, intimate relationship and seeing their triumphs makes it so meaningful. My biggest strength is attunement, empathy, and listening with an open mind and an open heart, in a non-judgmental manner. 

Training, Positions, and Counseling Specialties:

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I currently am in a postgraduate program studying psychoanalysis at Adelphi University, where I serve on the Executive Board. I also serve as the secretary for ASPP (Adelphi Society for Psychoanalysis & Psychotherapy). In addition, I work with Long Island Talk Therapy and of course, at Lutheran Counseling Center as a therapist. I also am board certified in Tele-Mental Health, and have my CASAC-T (Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor). I have training in CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Motivational Interviewing, and Psychoanalysis. 

I treat adults and couples, ages 18 and up. I treat a wide array of mental health issues including Anxiety, Depression, Self-Esteem, Addiction, Relationships, OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), Life Transitions, Stress Management, Trauma, and Women’s Issues. My main specialties are in women’s issues of PMDD/PMD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder and Premenstrual Exacerbation) and issues of Self-Esteem, Anxiety, and Addictions.
