Danielle Fischer Marti, M.S.W., LICSW
I returned to my hometown of New Ulm, MN, in 2010, after living in both St. Paul and Duluth, MN. Returning to my home community has been a very rewarding opportunity as it has afforded me the chance to be closer to my family and an ability to give back to a community that has meant a great deal to me. I currently reside in rural New Ulm, along with my family and our spoiled adopted Siberian husky, Ginger. My hobbies include spending time with my family and friends, design and the creative arts, being outdoors, gardening, and travel.
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from The College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, MN, and a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Minnesota in Duluth. My masters training included a focus in clinical social work, child welfare studies as a IV-E Child Welfare Scholar and specialized study on the provision of culturally competent services to American Indian populations. My clinical fieldwork focused in the area of children’s mental health and child welfare services, and my clinical research focused on the impact of active duty military service on military children and their families.
I have been with Eunoia Family Resource Center since December 2014. Prior to joining Eunoia, I worked in a variety of settings, including school-based mental health in both urban and rural areas, community mental health, a state-operated mental health treatment center and corporate behavioral health care. I provide psychotherapy services (individual, group and family) to both children as young as 3 years old and adults. I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), which is a specialized treatment approach for clients 18 and younger that addresses childhood trauma with both the child and their family. My approach with children is often hands-on and interactive, incorporating both the child and parent into the treatment interventions. In providing services to adult individuals, I am comfortable working with a wide variety of mental health needs, including unresolved developmental trauma, posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, domestic violence, severe and persistent mental illness and veterans’ services.
