Hello, I’m Dr. Danica Harris

Dr. Danica Harris is a therapist and the empathic voice behind the popular Instagram account @theempoweredtherapist. She is the co-owner of Empowered Healing Dallas, a social justice-informed therapy practice in Dallas, TX focused on providing mental health services for those from oppressed communities.

Danica earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology and both a Master’s and a Doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman’s University, as well as a certification in Gender & Multicultural Studies. She is trained in working with complex trauma, developmental and attachment-based trauma, sexual trauma, and identity-based trauma.

Danica believes that we are all our own expert, and as a therapist and a content creator, her job is to help guide people to their own answers. She believes that healing happens in small doses, and through normalization, validation, education, and empowerment, we all have the capacity to create the change we desire.
