I became a therapist to help individuals and couples successfully navigate the difficulties of life and relationships. I provide a safe, compassionate, and confidential environment for each of my clients so that they might move towards healing and growth in their lives. My passion is to help individuals and couples find the intimacy they desire by uncovering specific patterns and obstacles to intimacy and building on their strengths so that they have the relationships they truly desire.

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.

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 those factors which underlie and perpetuate your particular suffering. This process of 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.

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.

The needs of others come before your own? Sometimes, as children, we fundamentally altered who we were to adjust to trauma, role-reversals, and cold parenting. This can create an underdeveloped sense of self or we are sensitive the slightest shifts in the moods of others. Relationships are scary. When happiness finally starts to seep in, an overwhelming fear sets in that it will all collapse & disappear.

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.

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.

Sadness, grief and worry are normal human experiences. However, when they endure for long periods of time or when you are overwhelmed by the effects of stress or trauma, if you have difficulty sleeping or concentrating or you feel hopeless or helpless, then it may be time to visit a skilled therapist.

I’ve been a practicing Therapist for 20 years and I love to help people become healthier emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I tend to relate easily to my clients, listening to their concerns and am able to provide guidance when it is appropriate. I feel that it is important for the therapist and the client to have a good connection in order to help in the therapy process. I initially use Cognitive Behavioral and Solution Focused Therapies, but as I get to know my clients more and their specific difficulties I will use other modalities as necessary. Let's chat to see if we would be a good match as a Therapist and client.

I believe in the human capacity to heal, accept, love, and grow from our life experiences. Our most treasured beliefs and relationships help us through the pain and difficult times in life. I believe there is no point so low from which we cannot only recover, but gain wisdom and strength as well. Therefore, I focus my treatment style on emotional and character growth, rather than simple symptom reduction.

Narcissistic Personality Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in San Luis Obispo. At one end of the self-loving spectrum is the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, at the other end reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder , whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don't receive the attention they consider their birthright. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of self...and mirrors. Narcissistic mothers or narcissistic daughters are a common discussion in therapy, although beware the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego. Personality traits related to narcissism include: Psychopathy, and Machiavellianism.

San Luis Obispo narcissism therapists can help work through the issues of being, or knowing, a narcissist. As narcissism counselors in San Luis Obispo they are experienced in guiding clients in dealing with this disorder.
