I received specialized postdoctoral training in marriage and family therapy, pregnancy and postpartum issues, and EMDR.
Seeking Psychotherapy is a courageous and hopeful act. While each of us comes to therapy for different reasons, we all need acceptance, empathy, and support to examine our lives and make change. I work with children, adolescents, and adults and tailor my approach to the individual needs of my client. I have helped people with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, addiction, parenting, and navigating difficult life transitions, such as divorce and remarriage.

Extensive training, my own therapy and mindfulness practice, and long term marriage and family experience inform my work.
Are you anxious, depressed, feeling as though things just are not working out the way you had imagined? Maybe you and your partner are repeating the same old fights and nothing seems to change. Not sure your relationship will survive? I can help you have a different kind of connection, to yourself, and to each other. Therapy in a safe and trusting environment can help!

Working with couples in marital therapy has been one of my favorite areas.
This is me at the beach with Shannon, our 25 year-old daughter. My wife Vicki and I had the good fortune to raise her here in beautiful San Diego North County, where she has had the opportunity to become an accomplished surfer, sailor, diver, and nature photographer. Vicki and I are a Marriage and Family Therapist team in private practice here for 20+ years in Encinitas, California. As well as seeing couples and families, I have specialized in treating anxiety disorders and phobias, depression, alcohol and substance abuse, and adolescents. I completed my B.A.degree at the University of Connecticut and graduate training at Purdue University. Using an eclectic approach, I combine elements of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, client-centered and mindfulness therapies in my practice. I am also certified in Clinical Hypnosis for use in weight loss, smoking cessation, habit control and anxiety reduction. I began focusing on treating adolescents very early in my career, and I have always enjoyed working with their youthful energy. Helping parents to work more closely together and develope simple and effective parenting skills can transform a stressful, contentious family life i

Some of my areas of expertise include: anxiety, ADHD, OCD, depression, trauma, family dynamics, life transitions, marital issues, divorce, and co-parenting.
Working through difficult experiences and emotions can be challenging. It can be even harder to make desired changes in ones life when certain patterns have been established for so long. I work hard to ensure that my clients feel safe and supported throughout this process. By creating a comfortable and lighthearted environment, individuals, families, and couples are able to gain some reprieve from the difficulties they are experiencing. This allows change to begin to occur in the lives of my clients.

I acted as a "doula" (supportive birth companion) for friends and family members over the years, and I found this emotional support role to be a rich and rewarding one. This prompted me to transition from my career as an attorney to one as a therapist. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I support individuals and couples encountering relationship challenges, emotional pain, grief and loss, and life transitions including new additions to the family and career changes.

As an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist and a mom myself, I have extensive experience supporting women with mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, and complex trauma/PTSD.
As a new or expectant mom, you may feel overwhelmed, anxious, or alone. Although preconception, pregnancy, and postpartum are periods of growth and change, they can also be stressful for your mind, body, and relationships. You may feel isolated, or like negative emotions from your past are resurfacing. Others around you may wonder why you seem unhappy–after all, isn’t this time supposed to be one of the happiest of your life? When we meet, I provide the emotional support you need to feel heard and understood.

Hi, I’m Dan. I’m a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist practicing in San Diego. I give people the tools they need to move from a state of stuckness to a state of hope, health, and freedom in their true identities. In therapy, we’ll focus on what is most healthy—that won’t necessarily be what’s most comfortable. Often, we’ve developed unhealthy lenses that have served to protect our core identity. Those are schemas. They block your true identity. Your identity has power. We’ll heal the schemas and develop your identity. This will give you control over your life.

What type of Encinitas mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Encinitas?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
