Few of us make it through childhood without having experienced trauma of one form or another. Often times, the adaptations that we make in order to best survive early life challenges, lead to patterns of belief and action which get in the way of us finding freedom, happiness, and fulfillment as adolescents and adults. Every person deserves an opportunity to grow to their greatest potential. Therapy is a facilitated process of increasing awareness of obstacles to growth and supporting transformation.

What brings you here? If you are scrolling through these pages, you are likely looking for support, either for yourself or someone you care about. While it is easier now to find psychological support, finding the right person to work with is as important as ever. While working with me you will be received in a warm, non-judgmental, and curiosity filled environment. While considering what brought you into therapy, we will reflect on the circumstances contributing to where you are today. Our focus will be on integrating what has been in order to develop into what can be.

I believe that each of us has the capacity to heal from our experiences, no matter how difficult, painful, or traumatic. Though the circumstances that cause our pain may be shared, the journey of healing is an entirely unique and personal one. My goals are to help you define your journey and provide a landscape where you feel seen, heard, and above all else, safe along the way. Whether still setting your course, or well into your journey, therapy can be deeply rewarding.

Are you afraid, confused, or struggling with your relationships? I work with client(s) dealing with interpersonal issues and communication challenges. It may be a husband and wife re-defining their roles with life changes, or an individual considering a career change. The problem often reveals itself at the surface when arguing and verbal conflict ensue, but the source of the problem needs a deeper adjustment, such as adjusting roles or providing more support for a family member. Regardless, clear communication usually allows the individual, couple, or family to achieve the goal of collaboration and compromise.

I provide individual coaching to help you organize, plan, and follow-through with your work or activities. Whether a student or an adult, sessions are individually curtailed to adjust to the areas that may be impacted, such as course content, work productivity, or job performance. I can teach middle school, high school, and college students concepts about learning and memory. Specifically how memory operates and how to use skills to enhance retention of academic material aides in preparing for exams as well as improving in exam performance.

Currently, I'm mostly using Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy with my clients. When, as a child, we find ourselves traumatizing or trapped in negative circumstances, parts of our self system compensate by locking away that which at that time was too much for us to handle. Later, if we do not go back to this locked away material, the pain, confusion and injustice of what happened to us long ago, can get triggered, or, awakened, when similar such challenges arise in the present. IFS provides a safe way for that locked away material to be approached and reprocessed, allowing our core self to take back control of our lives.

I have over 20 years of experience providing individual, couple, and group psychotherapy to adults and older teens. My orientation is eclectic, drawing from psychodynamic, humanistic-existential, gestalt, cognitive-behavioral, and internal family systems models. This means I have a variety of tools and approaches with which to help my clients understand and resolve the issues they face. Among the many issues and concerns I have helped people with are depression, substance abuse, relationship problems, affairs, sexual addiction, anxiety, grief, and personal growth. I am board-certified by the American Board of Professional Psychology (the "ABPP" after my name).

Offering a non-judgmental perspective, I empower people to help themselves live happier and healthier lives. Using a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach, blended with compassion and respect for the client, I provide treatment for adolescents and adults dealing with a variety of issues (e.g. depression, anxiety, ADHD, ODD, relationship issues, trauma issues, personal growth). I believe the client is the expert on themselves and their needs and that they drive the treatment. My role is to offer appropriate suggestions and techniques to improve their life (lives).

I'm a clinical psychologist practicing with those who suffer from depression, anxiety, obsessions, anger, aloofness, issues of identity and intimacy, difficult life circumstances and many other problems. While I value knowledge about psychopathology, I find a purely diagnosis-based approach to be insufficient. Instead, we can be curious together about many aspects of your life that bear on your particular suffering. This process of broad exploration and discovery can only happen in a safe and confidential relationship. It is always a great privilege when someone chooses to reveal themselves to me on deeply personal levels.

Connection is at the core of who we are, what we’re passionate about, and the most meaningful relationships we have. And yet so many things can interfere with our ability to connect: anxiety, depression, grief, traumatic experiences...how we cope with these things may inhibit our ability to build intimacy with those around us. I work with students and young adults, as well as those in mid-life and beyond, who experience anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or life transitions, that interfere with living fully you, fully now.

Connecting to our potential for vibrant, and meaningful relationships is more important now than ever as we work to find creative ways to stay in touch in this increasing complex world. From this place I make it my focus to understand the ways that our past and present circumstances keep us from accessing this potential. Pain, relational or otherwise, can build up over time, become truly overwhelming, and can create barriers to a fruitful life. I'm deeply curious about the unique paths each of us move on towards healing and am committed to co-creating a resilient setting in which we explore what that path looks like for you.

My early training and work with young children and their parents prepared me for my current work treating adults and couples; many of the struggles these families had centered around bonding and attachment. Today, most of my adult patients face relationship issues rooted in early life experiences. During psychotherapy treatments, I help my patients understand the value of working through early emotional losses so they can mature and enjoy healthy adult relationships.

I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorders. After a thorough evaluation, I teach my clients about their anxiety and together we come up with an evidence-based treatment plan---then we work as a team to implement that plan. My new book ("Your Anxiety Beast and You: A Compassionate Guide for Living in an Increasingly Anxious World") guides people through my treatment approach.

Life is like a river of emotions, and sometimes the current can become unpredictable and overwhelming. Navigating this river can be exhausting, and when we try to block the flow, pressure builds, and builds and until it feels like there is too much to face alone. You do not have to navigate your river alone. Daniel creates a safe and welcoming environment for his clients to relieve stress, tension and learn new tools to aid in emotional navigation. His approach is client-centered, focusing on the depth of your experiences, to finding new insight and resolution to the difficulties in your life.

For the 22 last years I have worked successfully with adult clients dealing with a wide range of issues including marital and relationship problems, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, abuse issues, personality issues and mental health concerns. I believe a trusting relationship between the therapist and client is the foundation for all growth and change. However, the relationship itself is typically not sufficient. I will help you set goals for your therapy based upon what you would like to have different in your life, and together we will explore and change the blocks which have prevented you from achieving your goals.

Trauma can broadly be defined as any event or situation that has a lasting negative impact. EMDR is an highly effective form of psychotherapy which harnesses all we know about human attachment and neurobiology to heal trauma and to reprocess disturbing life experiences. Treatment focuses on past experiences as the basis for clinical complaints; current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs, and sensations; and positive experiences needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and emotional health. Focused protocols are used, and no homework or detailed descriptions of the events are required.

My primary focus in private practice is evaluation and assessment for a variety of psychological conditions, such as ADHD, Autism, Mood Disorders, Learning Disabilities and Personality Disorders. The second focus I have is treatment. I have an integrative approach to therapy in which I use multiple modalities that fit my clients’ individual needs. Some of the modalities I use are interpersonal therapy, supportive therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy. I also view other factors that can affect the client, such as cultural, medical, and environmental factors.
