Danielle DiPiro (Mancos)



Hello, I’m glad you are here. I am a mental health counselor with the Mancos Valley Center for Trauma and Attachment. I work with teens, adults, and families facing various challenges. I believe everyone can thrive and one of my goals inour work together will be to help you capitalize on your strengths and positive qualities. Together, we can help you increase your self-confidence, find your voice, build motivation, deal with life’s challenges, define your values, and create the change you seek.

 I have experience working with adolescents in various capacities for the past ten years. Teens and young adults who I work with are frequently struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, ADHD, neurodiversity (including level 1 autism spectrum disorder and non-verbal learning disorder), low self-esteem, and difficulty in peer and family relationships. I like to be playful, humorous, and compassionately challenging with the teens and young adults I work with. Working with families and couples is something I am passionate about. I have a depth of experience in helping families and couples improve their communication, strengthen connections, reestablish healthy boundaries, process difficult shared experiences, and examine intergenerational patterns. My goal is to get to know you as a unique individual.

 While I frequently draw from cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, reality therapy, mindfulness, and family system theories, I tailor my approach to meet the unique needs of each individual with whom I work. I earned a master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University andI have additional training in substance use counseling.

I look forward to getting to know you, Danielle.
