In addition to providing therapy services, she is also a Visiting Clinical Professor at Texas Woman's University, teaching both graduate and undergraduate classes, and she loves providing supervision and training. She prioritizes self-care and find that she is best served when she is able to get her own needs met. Her self-care practices include spending time with her partner, coming up with nicknames for her three rescue pups, and watching almost anything that comes out on Netflix. Dr. Danica also make time for gentle movement and have an ever-growing and changing mindfulness practice.
