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 existential,
and rational emotive therapy.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Daniel Downey. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

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 always seems to find ways to make me laugh and think about moments in my life. I always value his opinion and he always values mine. I look forward to appointments which in the past with other therapist I have not.

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.

Dr. Downey and I have a great report and I enjoy talking with him. I like that he follows up with me during the week and I can contact him if needed. I don't feel judged and he's helped me talk about uncomfortable topics.

Daniel is extremely experienced and compassionate, and is more than able to tackle difficult subjects while also making his patients feel more at ease.

I'm glad I chose him due to his expertise, he is helping to guide me through a difficult time and helps to put my issues into perspective.

Work with me!
