Welcome and Hello. I appreciate you taking a few moments to consider working with me on personal difficulties and/or self-development/growth. I am a Clinical Psychologist, licensed in the state of Michigan. I enjoy working with individuals from a variety of backgrounds and have particularly focused my career on working with individuals from underserved communities.
I have 20 years of experience in outpatient, inpatient and correctional settings. I am an Army Reservist who has worked in the Veterans Administration and military treatment facilities. My professional practice has focused on helping individuals develop effective strategies to cope with anxiety, depression, trauma and stress related issues. I have provided mental health counseling focused on LGBTQ+ issues, as well as provided assessment for individuals considering gender/sex reassignment surgery.
My psychotherapy style is eclectic. I utilized various techniques including CBT, interpersonal, problem-solving and existential therapy approaches. I actively encourage individuals to establish personal goals and identify existing strengths which they may have previously gone unnoticed or underused in addressing current concerns. Engaging in therapy is recognized as challenging and frightening. Change is difficult. I am here to support those ready to accept this challenge and to provide guidance and support as you move through this difficult time in your life.

I have tried counseling many times over the course of many years. Dr. Holdwick is the most relatable and helpful professional that I've ever worked with. I feel grateful to this app for connecting me with him. The worksheets he's given me have been fantastic and he has a lot of experience to draw off of.
Despite having only two sessions so far, I must say he has been one of the best therapist I have had. Extremely patient, empathetic, attentive, observant and pragmatic. He gives very sound and concrete advise to help you understand your core issues and address. Highly recommend Dr. Dan!
Really enjoying my experience at better help. My counsellor is amazing and I certainly would recommend both better help and Dr. Holdwick
