About Daniele White

Daniele White, LMSW, joins AccessHealth with extensive experience working with adults and adolescents in diverse settings, including jails, hospitals, and schools. A proud alumna of UT Austin, she holds a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion & Behavioral Science and a Master of Science in Social Work. Daniele’s passion for promoting health equity and serving marginalized communities stems from her background in public health and tobacco prevention. 

Her journey in social work began with facilitating health and wellness classes at Travis County Jail, a transformative experience that inspired her to pursue a master's degree. Through this role, Daniele engaged with individuals facing significant struggles, such as substance abuse, trauma, and challenges within the criminal justice system. This exposure deepened her understanding of addiction and recovery and, combined with her background in tobacco prevention, motivated her to specialize in substance use recovery.

Daniele is committed to creating spaces where clients feel seen, heard, and empowered to show up authentically. She strives to amplify their voices and co-create environments that foster genuine connection and healing. Outside of her professional life, Daniele is a self-proclaimed plant enthusiast, animal lover, and crafter. She aspires to integrate nature and art into her practice, enriching the therapeutic experience for her clients.
