About Mary H. Danielak, Psy.D.

 

A licensed clinical psychologist, Mary Hynes Danielak Psy.D. has been practicing in the Atlanta area since 1990. She is one of the founders of The Counseling and Development Center, which has been located in Alpharetta since 1994, and she works along side a group of multi-disciplinary clinicians. Dr. Danielak is married with three children and has learned an infinite amount from being an active parent, which she incorporates into her therapy.

 

Dr. Danielak brings a personalized, professional approach in a private setting, working with all age groups from 4 to 104 years old. Her approach is psychodynamic in understanding; using an interactive approach, she gains an understanding of the client's agenda and gets to the root cause of any issues. She then provides both behavioral and cognitive intervention, since understanding the issues alone is not a solution.

 

As part of her practice, Dr. Danielak conducts assessments and evaluations for learning disabilities such as:

dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia

attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder

processing issues

Asperger’s and autism

 

Providing therapy and counseling for both adults and children is a large part of Dr. Danielak's practice, and Dr. Danielak has experience helping clients with a large range of issues, including:

depressive disorders

anxiety disorders

marital counseling, counseling during or after divorce

parenting, step-parenting and family therapy

eating disorders

 

In addition to providing testing, assessments, and therapy, Dr. Danielak also offers Cogmed Working Memory Training. Cogmed is a research-based solution to improve working memory, attention and focus.
