Dan enjoys the authenticity children bring to the table, the journey of discovering self that a teenager is on, and the wisdom, knowledge, and experience that an adult has to offer.
Dan’s experience thus far has been focused on working with the younger populations, children and teens. Having worked in a homeless shelter to start his professional journey, utilizing an adventure therapy approach, he was able to discover the power of bringing individuals outside of their normal environment, providing them the space to be vulnerable, challenge themselves, and be opened to growth. His goal is to reproduce that experience, or something very close to it, within the confines of more traditional therapy.
His style of therapy is direct, encouraging, and lighthearted. Through the use of trauma-informed cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and play-therapy, he hopes to provide the space necessary to allow individuals to shed light on new pathways to help enhance their lives.
Dan believes that everyone has unlimited potential to be the best possible version of themselves, and that through the honesty, commitment, and open mind it takes to be a part of the therapeutic relationship, one can gain access to that potential and much more.
