Aloha! My name is Danielle Parsons. I am licensed in the State of Washington as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I graduated from Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry from the Couples and Family Therapy program in 2016.
I am part-Hawaiian, born and raised in the beautiful town of Kailua, O'ahu, Hawai'i. My roots are multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, accepting of all. I have lived in Washington State for over 20 years. I love it here! I am a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, granddaughter, sister and friend. My life experiences have taught me much and I am always open to learning more.
I began my journey as a therapist later in life, after my children had grown and moved out of the home. While I loved what I was doing at the time, I wanted to pursue a career that was personally fulfilling and purposeful. Becoming a therapist, seeing people grow and change in healthy ways, and being of service to the community has been a wonderful journey for me.

I chose the name Aloha Compassionate Counseling for my business because I value the Spirit of Aloha and what I strive to be in my life with others and myself. Compassion fits great with the Spirit of Aloha as being present with someone, to hear their story of how they may be suffering and in pain. It is one of the greatest gifts we can offer to one another. I am grateful for the opportunity to do this very important work.
