13 years of experience

Hello! My name is Dan, and I am a licensed mental health counselor. I am passionate about my profession and enjoy helping my clients achieve their individual goals. It is exciting to see a client go from where they were to where they want to be in their lives. I love to help those who are struggling in their personal or work relationships learn how to better communicate their needs and improve the quality of those relationships! This is all achieved by tailoring my sessions to the needs of each person I work with. One of the most powerful effects I have found in therapy is providing a safe space where you are heard, understood, and accepted. We all have stress and struggles at times and there is great healing in exploring and touching those feelings. Let's work together towards your goals!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

The first session is about us getting to know each other, and your goals for therapy. When we build a positive therapeutic relationship, it helps with your success and reaching your goals. We will plan out short and long term goals to help get you where you need to be, decreasing stressors and unwanted feelings, and increasing quality of life.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strengths in therapy are providing empathy, unconditional positive regard, and a safe space to be who you are. I can reflect and feel with you your experiences, and be consistent in that to make sense of your thoughts and feelings. I help create a roadmap toward your long term goals that includes small steps to get there. Your short-term successes provide the fuel of motivation, clear the path in front of you, and give you the mindset you need to take more control in your life.
