Dr. Shaji Daniel

(PhD, LPC, NCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas, dedicated to providing exceptional care and counseling for individuals and families dealing with various spiritual, emotional, and mental health issues. I earned my Ph.D. in counseling from the University of Cumberlands, KY after completing the Master of Education in Professional Counseling from the University of Houston-Victoria. I also hold my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Theology.

With years of my professional counseling experience as a counselor, pastor, and counselor educator, I have learned that physical and mental healing can be aided by a strong positive mind and trust in God. I am an interactive and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Counselor. I also adopt interventions from the Solution Focused Brief Therapy to help clients find meaning and hope for their life. My approach in counseling is to collaboratively develop strategies that help the clients overcome their mental hurdles, effectively address personal life challenges, build their strength, and attain personal growth. I help clients to identify maladaptive, dysfunctional thoughts, and to replace them with more functional and positive thoughts through cognitive restructuring interventions and reflection of thoughts, feelings, and their meanings. I work with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, and other mental health disorders.

Dr. Daniel is a fantastic counselor. He helped me regain my confidence in learning how to challenge negative thoughts and stand up for myself in opening up to people who can help me. The tools he has given me will help me as I continue on. I can't do anything but thank him for what he has done.

Dr. Daniel is very patient and listens well. He often refers back to phrases or concerns I've mentioned. I find this to be comforting that he understands my emotions. Dr. Daniel challenges me to be present with my emotions and recall specific scenarios so we can work through the challenges. While this can be tough and frustrating at times, it is the work we put in that helps us grow!
