My approach as a therapist is to provide you a safe, supportive, and confidential environment. I enjoy working with individuals struggling with relationship issues, anxiety, and stress, as well as couples who are in need of a 'relationship tune-up'. We"ll explore your issues, build on your strengths, and then develop new skills and strategies to help you enjoy your life with less stress and worry. This can mean short-term solution focused therapy sessions for immediate and pressing problems, or longer sessions - depending on what you want to accomplish.

You are not what you feel. You are not even what you think. You are what you do. Acceptance & Commitment Therapy is about taking thoughts and feelings and using them for what they're supposed to be: data. They are merely to let us know how we're responding to our environment. It is up to our higher cognitions, our rational thoughts, to decide what to do with that information. My clients range from those with neurodevelopmental issues, mood disorders, and life adjustment events. The premise is the same in all cases: understand ourselves, what we feel and think, figure out WHY we think that way, and then decide what to do with it.

Daniel holds a firm belief that therapy must begin with the counselor’s willingness to listen carefully to client speech, emotion, and difference. He believes that each person’s individuality is expressed even in the unique challenges they face. The ideal therapeutic relation is one in which the client feels comfortable enough to begin to speak about themselves and then eventually feels compelled to speak about themselves in new, unexpected ways.

If you, or someone you care about, is looking for an alternative to AA and '12-step' programs I encourage you to give me a call. Since the early 1990s I have been offering addictive behavioral counseling based on a sensible and practical cognitive-behavioral approach and SMART® Recovery. I view addictive habits and recovery as learned behaviors/habit patterns. 'Recovery,' stopping the addiction and living comfortably, is something one learns how to do. Stopping addictive habits is a means to an end --increasing satisfaction and enjoyment in one's life and reducing or eliminating self-inflicted discomfort and distress.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
