About Me

Welcome! My name is Dan, and I'm a counselor in Massachusetts, where I hold licensure and have worked for the past 9 years. I completed my Master's in Counseling Psychology with dual concentrations in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Child, Adolescent, and Family Therapy. I've worked with adults and youth in a wide range of settings, including residential, clinical outpatient therapy, school-based work, and in-home settings. I have found success in my experience helping clients work through depression, anxiety, trauma, family/parenting issues, and substance abuse/addiction, among many other things.

As a counselor, I am so fortunate to meet and speak with many new and exciting people. Working with clients to enact positive change on their life is incredibly rewarding. I would categorize my style as warm, honest, and direct. I believe in having an eclectic and fluid approach to best meet the client's needs. I have extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and value Dialectical-Behavior Therapy (DBT). I routinely encourage the helping potential of positive thought structures and actions, as well as the pillars of DBT: mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. I value my client’s development of insight as a strong motivator of healthy change. I think any helpful counseling relationship requires trust and a mutual desire to work together, and as such, I hope to share my positivity and my sense of humor with my clients.

Thanks for reaching out! I look forward to speaking with you and I hope that we can work together on whatever challenge or struggle brings you here today.

Best,

Dan

Dan is a great counselor. He responds when I need him and understands the things I am going through. I don't feel threatened or judged by him and am perfectly happy to talk with him about every part of my problem.
