Daniela Capparelli was born and grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She obtained a degree in Psychology from Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina (2002). Soon after, she came across collaborative, narrative, dialogical and reflective ideas and participated in several workshops and seminars leaded by Harlene Anderson, Tom Andersen, Jaakko Seikkula among other practitioners whose practices shared the social construction and language philosophy. Moved to a small city in the country (General Villegas) where she worked at an Educational Therapeutic Centre for people with serious disabilities (ADERID, 2003-2013). She coordinated the psychology service there and worked as a consultant for an interdisciplinary team. In those days, she worked independently as clinical therapist too.

She trained as a System Family Therapist (2007-2008) and obtained the Certification in Collaborative and Dialogical Practices (2013- FundaCes and Houston Galveston Institute). Collaborative practices have been extremely useful to approach families at risk dealing with organic disease and disabilities, to promote interdisciplinary team work and to afford diverse situations in the clinical field with families, children and couples. She also achieved a Postgraduate Certificate as a University Teacher Postgraduate in Universidad de San Andrés (2019).

At present, she lives again in Buenos Aires where she develops as a private practitioner in the clinical field and works in Collaborative Education in private and public organizations. She is Secretary of FundaCes and helps with institutional work including communication and projects development as well. She is part of the ICCP faculty staff. She is also a faculty in the Developmental Psychology department at Universidad del Salvador. She is interested in promoting meaningful dialogue and respect in human relationships from the social construction philosophy, in the health, social and education fields. She is committed to expanding and applying these practices and approaches in new fields and contexts.
