About me

My 10+ years of experience has given me the opportunity to work with people in crisis, while others I have assisted, lived with the daily obstacles associated with severe and persistent mental illnesses. The majority of my experience has been with individuals experiencing stress, sudden life changes, anxiety and depression and issues related to being transgender or queer. My therapeutic approach is highly eclectic and incorporates theory and process ranging from psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral, solution focussed therapy to
and rational emotive therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Daniel is wonderful to talk to. I look forward to talking with him weekly. I like the way he listens and challenges my thoughts and behaviors. He recommended the group therapy sessions, which I also really like. I feel like I've made great progress since I've seen Daniel.

Daniel is the most welcoming, kind, and honest therapist. From being personable to helping you build a better self.

I would recommend him to anyone.

Daniel, Thank you again for everything you do.

I’ve only worked with him for around 3 weeks now, but I already think that he’s a great therapist. I feel better when talking about my issues with him and we can also crack a joke during the middle of the session to.

Daniel has been a tremendous help to me since I've been seeing him. I've made a lot of progress with moving beyond my trauma and controlling the anger that resulted from it. He's a great listener, knows his stuff, and is very personable so you're comfortable and feel like you're talking to a trusted friend than a stuffy therapist.
