Dan LaVelle


About Me

I am a licensed mental health service provider in the state of Tennessee with over 6 years of experience working as a meditation coach, hypnotherapist, addictions therapist, and counselor. I have experience with clients of all ages with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, relationship issues, grief, physical pain, and many other manifestations of stress. My passion is helping clients find ways to tackle their problems holistically, enabling the mind, body, and spirit to work together for the sake of healing and growth.

My first goal in each counseling session is to be as present with the client as possible. Often all someone needs to grow is a compassionate witness. My approach to therapy is a nice mix of mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, neuro-linguistic programing, and existential therapy. I attempt to make each session part process and part practical. We may spend time processing your feelings, thoughts, and experiences. We will also spend time coming up with practices or goals that you can set outside of therapy. This will enable you to put self-care into action and provide a means to measure progress.

I consider it an honor to bear witness to people's stories, as a counselor. I hope that I can be of service, and I look forward to meeting you.

LPC #3783 (Expires: 2021-04-30)


Written by R.A. on Jul 11, 2019 after counseling with Dan for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and anger management

Dan had given me insights on how to approach my way of thinking. He has given me exercises and is very interested in listening to what I have to say while helping me to relate. I look forward to our sessions when at first I was very reluctant. He is very easy to talk to and I am comfortable with him.
