My name is Dan Jasperson and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who has been practicing as a licensed therapist since 2014. I earned a Master of Counseling Psychology degree from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Il. After graduating in 2014, I have worked in a variety of treatment settings including outpatient, community mental health, hospitals, prisons, and treatment centers. I have experience working with adolescents, adult males and females. I provide individual and group therapy.
I specialize in areas of depression, anxiety, insomnia, bipolar, anger management, psychotic disorders, and life transition issues. I also specialize in working with those who struggle with self-injury and personality disorders. I use an integrative approach which consists of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy to address the needs of the client.
In the past seven years, I have developed a philosophy that is centered around being humanistic, empathetic, and yet challenging to encourage clients to work towards their goals. Through using validation, compassion, and exploring obstacles to change, I help clients find meaning to inspire growth in a positive and meaningful way. I believe that each client is unique and I address their individual therapeutic needs by using a holistic approach.
I look forward to getting to meet you and join you on your journey down the path of mental wellness.
