Hilton Head Leadership & Staff

Executive Director - Danielle LaPointe, LPC

Danielle LaPointe

Danielle LaPointe leads the team at Sunspire Health Hilton Head as Executive Director, where her goals are simple: ensure every patient has such an amazing experience that they are afforded the opportunity to recover, and equip the staff to make that recovery a reality. She has two decades of experience working with individuals affected by substance use disorders, eating disorders, and process addictions.

Danielle has a heart for altruism and a passion to make a difference. She excels at organizing teams, delegating authority and empowering individuals to achieve their full potential because she is a natural-born leader who is driven to succeed. Before coming to Sunspire Health, her work with the court system was instrumental in mitigating criminal recidivism and taxpayer costs by providing long-term solutions for those suffering from addiction and bridging the gap between the legal system and the healthcare community.

After receiving her bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of South Carolina and her master's degree in professional counseling from Liberty University, Danielle dove headfirst into the field that most captured her heart: addiction. She leads the Hilton Head team on the cutting-edge of behavioral health, establishing the facility as a pioneer in the field of substance abuse.
