Karly Danos, MA, LPCC, CCC

Residential Therapist
Lindner Center of HOPE

Karly is a full time Residential Therapist, serving both Sibcy and Williams House at Lindner Center of HOPE. She also serves as Adjunct Faculty at Xavier University and is pursuing her PHD in Counselor Education and Supervision at the University of Cincinnati.

With undergraduate degrees in both Theatre and Interpersonal Communication, Karly employs an innovative, interpersonal, and systems-based approach to therapy. As an avid arts practitioner, she utilizes expressive and creative interventions to initiate change and healing, while increasing inter- and intrapersonal efficacy and functioning. Further, she employs a collaborative therapeutic alliance, coupled with evidence-based practices to assess, and address, mental health concerns along the spectrum of the DSM.

Karly has worked in a variety of settings, providing both clinical and consultative services and trainings, short- and long-term treatment, and in varying levels of care. She began her career right at UC Health working in the Employee Assistance Program. She then worked as a Residential Therapist at the Center for Addiction Treatment. After a brief stint in private practice, she has now returned to Residential Treatment, and is looking forward to continuing excellent clinical care through an ecological and team-based approach.

Karly is planning to combine her areas of study, and advance the field, through further research and development within the intersection of theatre, communication, the art of therapy, and supervision.
