Danielle Schroeder

Registered Clinical Counsellor, MA, RCC

Danielle is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors providing prenatal and postpartum counselling support at South Community Birth Program. She has worked extensively in the areas of trauma, cancer and end of life, grief and loss, and family systems since she began her counselling career in 2008. For the past 10 years she has worked primarily with Callanish Society in Vancouver, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the mental, emotional, and spiritual health of individuals and families. More recently it was through her own personal experience going through childbirth twice, and then living the emotional and mental roller coaster ride that the transition to parenthood has had on her, which sparked her desire to offer her skills as a clinical counsellor to support families going through this monumental stage of life. Her hope is to offer a safe space and offer support for anxiety and depression during and after pregnancy (which includes dealing with difficult emotions like fear and uncertainty, worry, and anger), stress and expectations, relationship issues, body image, grief and loss (connected to major life transition, miscarriage, still birth), processing a history of trauma and difficult birth experience.

Danielle looks forward to joining SCBP in September 2019!
