Danielle Cooker

Primary Counselor

From a young age, Danielle knew that she wanted to make a difference in others’ lives. In 2013, she graduated with her Associate in Arts in Education. She wanted to pursue a career as a special education teacher; however, after completing an internship as a residential counselor at a therapeutic summer camp in New Hampshire, she decided that she wanted to change her career path.

Danielle graduated from Rowan University with her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2015. After completing her undergraduate degree, she worked with adolescents as a mental health associate in an outpatient behavioral health and addiction treatment facility. Knowing that she wanted to dedicate her life to assisting individuals in need, Danielle decided to further her education and enroll in the Master’s of Social Work program (MSW) at Rutgers University. Through her clinical internship at High Focus Centers, she found her true passion: to help those struggling with addiction. She is currently enrolled in the Addictions Counselor Training (ACT) Certificate program to help fulfill the requirements needed to obtain her LCADC.

Danielle is excited to be a part of the team at Victory Bay Recovery Center and is determined to help make a difference within the community.

In her spare time, Danielle enjoys traveling, spending time with family and friends, and working out.
