Dani Hanlin

Counselor Trainee and Intern


Dani is a CT who is currently finishing up a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Grand Canyon University. She graduated from Otterbein University in 2014 and is scheduled to graduate from Grand Canyon in December of 2023.


As part of her education, she is completing her practicum and internship here at Beacon Counseling Center under the supervision of Lynn King (LPCC-S). Dani is licensed with the Ohio CSWMFT Board as a CT (Counselor Trainee), and is a member of the American Counseling Association.


Dani works under the philosophy that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to therapy. She uses a collaborative and holistic approach with a focus on the mind-body connection. Dani believes each client comes to therapy with their own unique set of circumstances and endeavors to help clients by meeting them where they’re at and working together to provide them with the help they’re looking for. She utilizes several types of therapy including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Reality Therapy, Mindfulness Based Therapy (MBCT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Strength-Based Therapy.


Outside of counseling, Dani enjoys spending time with friends and family, as well as her sweet pup, Macie. She practices yoga, goes running and kayaking, plays board games, and creates art in her free time.
