About Me

Hello my name is Mark A Daniels and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have over 40 years of direct clinical experience in the public and private sector. I have worked with consumers with a wide range of challenges and concerns that include depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem, career issues, and anger management. I also have expertise working with culturally diverse consumers, and consumers who have experienced physical and emotional trauma. I have also worked extensively with consumers within the forensic psychiatric arena including state prisons, county jails, and state hospitals.

My therapeutic interventions are supportive, interactive, validating, and nonjudgmental. I embrace treating everyone with respect, compassion and with unconditional positive regard. My approach combines cognitive behavioral interventions, humanistic, mindfulness, and psychosocial interventions. I will tailor our dialogue, and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Everyone has value and are important in life's journey, sometimes we need to share each other's strength to make it from Monday to Tuesday.

Congratulations on your decision to seek empowerment and to enhance your current emotional being. I appreciate your courage and look forward to assisting you on this journey. Together we will work to access your inner strength, wisdom and talent to help you become stronger and better than ever before. You don't have to do this alone.

Sincerely,
Mark A Daniels, LCSW

A genuinely nice guy, who is experienced and feels like an old friend. He knows how to be gentle, but will also be harsh when he needs to be. I highly recommend him if you need someone to talk to.

Mark has been a great help to me. Growing up in socal as a mixed race man comes with a lot of very specific life experience and it’s been amazing to have someone I can actually relate to while I’m working through serious anxiety/panic attacks and PTSD. Regardless of the race factor, Mark is super friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend him to anyone who has anxiety about getting professional help.
