Resident in Counseling
Daria White, PhD, NCC

The work I do relates to the years spent on my own personal journey of healing. As someone said: “You cannot take people to a place you have never been yourself.” I believe that healing happens in context and connection. The encounter with another, studying their face, eyes, and expressions, knowing something of their true inner nature, shows the deep magic within and between us. I invite you to walk your healing journey with me. My focus is to provide the space for you to feel attached and safe with another human being, share deeply from your heart, begin to piece together your life-story, and find new meaning and resilience where you now see defeat and despair.

My education is from James Madison University where I received a PhD in Counseling and Supervision. I also have two master’s degrees, one in counseling and one in conflict transformation. In the last 20 years I have worked with university students and older adults, couples, individuals who struggled with anxiety and depression, domestic violence and sexual assault survivors, refugees, minority members, immigrants.

I focus on identity development, core strengths, attachment, individual and family trauma, optimal functioning and reprocessing of painful memories. I am wholistic in my approach and use the type of therapy that would best fit your needs. I have become a big proponent of the EMDR approach, and I see great results with clients who have failed to find relief through other approaches. I am also a Fluent Bulgarian speaker.
