Does going out in public with your child feel like an impossible task? Do you feel guilt over your child's meltdowns or teen's isolation? Do you feel like doctors, teachers, and other adults just don't get it? Do you worry about their safety? Are you overcome with guilt looking at other families on Facebook and Instagram? Parents want to feel like things are under control; that your family can be happy and have productive evenings, and that your child can transition to school and activities, feel confident, have friendships, and like themselves.

Welcome to my Psychology Today profile. My name is Dan. My approach to therapy is eclectic, but what I believe is most important is the therapeutic relationship. If you don't feel comfortable and relaxed, your healing and growth will feel more like work than a journey. I try to create an atmosphere tailored to your specific needs and desires. Whether you're seeking a guide, a teacher, or an instructor; I can fill that role and ensure you feel comfortable enough to ask for a change of pace. Seeking therapy can feel like an intimidating ordeal, my aim is to make it a tranquil yet invigorating hike through nature.

Choosing a therapist can be difficult. You want someone you can trust and who has the experience to help with your needs. I am qualified to treat most conditions that cause people distress. Some areas of special interest include LGBTQ+, healthcare workers, anxiety (OCD, phobias, general anxiety), stress management, work-life balance, depression, trauma, relationships, parenting, boundary-setting, and developing assertiveness. I am a strong LGBTQAI+ ally and have experience and special training working with LGBTQAI+ couples and individuals.

As a counselor, I so value the healing potential of human connection. Emotion and suffering are natural reactions to life, and the ability to sit with and process life’s challenges with another person can be a gift. Sharing moments of loss, shame, joy, and disappointment can lead to stronger self-acceptance and connection with others. I strive to be welcoming, open, and empathetic to all clients who walk through the door.

You deserve to heal. You deserve to be supported, respected, and seen for all you have been, all you will be, and all you are in this moment. I trust you to be the expert on yourself and your own experiences within the body, identities, and relationships that inform your ways of knowing yourself and your world. Our work together will not focus on identifying what’s “wrong” with you, and won’t aim to “fix” you. Together, we will explore areas of distress, discomfort, or questioning through a systemic lens. I will support your intentions toward transformative change and growth from perspectives that matter to you.

My previous role as an ADHD Coach helping individuals, couples, and families has now transitioned into a new role in psychotherapy as a Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in ADHD. I also offer formal ADHD diagnostic testing for children and adults. My ADHD treatment emphasizes education on ADHD and strategies designed to manage symptoms. Challenges within relationships are also a focus, especially to strengthen relationships affected by ADHD.

Currently accepting new clients! We all encounter challenges and setbacks in life. Therapy can support you in overcoming them while co-creating a life that you love. I approach therapy through a wellness lens to help you flourish, which means that instead of focusing solely on what's wrong, we pay attention to your strengths and ways that you can feel your best. As a trauma-informed therapist, I recognize that healing happens within the context of felt safety and connection so I strive to create a therapeutic space where you can show up as your whole and unique self. It is an honor to be there as a witness and guide.

Your heart is holding so much sadness. A heaviness in your chest. Your throat clenches up. When will the grief end? You ask, ‘how do I move on from this loss?’ You can’t stop thinking about what you should have done differently. You keep replaying the past. The thoughts won’t stop. The grief hits like a tidal wave. You just feel so sad. Your heart hurts. Maybe you’ve experienced the illness or death of a loved one or you’re struggling with chronic illness or pain. You’ve had to go through major life changes or a divorce or break-up. Grieving is a normal, necessary process that carries the depth of our love for other living beings.

Has back to school time been difficult? Do you feel like no one believes you when you describe your child’s outbursts and behaviors? Do you feel overwhelmed or stuck? Do you want to feel “happy” or "okay" again, or maybe for the first time? Look for therapy that helps your need for connection while maintaining your own sanity. I specialize in adoption, anxiety, chronic stress, PTSD school stress, attachment issues and reactive attachment, dissociation, depression, and mood disorders, and will work across multi parent households and with schools. I also work with first responders navigating FMLA, career changes, or retirement.

Relationships are magical. They are also hard work. Just when you thought you'd found your person, the intimacy and joy gives way to new depths of disconnect and loneliness. Or perhaps you're a new parent, excited by the unique possibility of bonding as a family, only to discover overwhelm, even suffering. Trauma can create additional barriers to connection. Attachment issues and difficult childhood relationships can result in reenactments of past relationships and roles that are just plain exhausting. Sound familiar? Then its time for change.

Clients often come to see me when they feel lost, stuck, or overwhelmed. I strive to help clients identify and explore the foundation of a challenge or issue so that they can effectively (and often quickly) achieve deep and lasting change. My work is rooted in my belief that our bodies and minds are designed to heal, and we can get stuck when those innate processes are interrupted or ignored. I use an integrative approach to help strengthen the client's inherent wisdom and ability to heal, with an emphasis on self-awareness, skill-building, and the mind-body connection.

Our lives are complex. As your therapist, it is my job to understand this complexity coupled with your psychological needs to facilitate the realization of your goals. I see my role as understanding you, your history, and your environment in a holistic way and using that knowledge to promote exploration and growth. Beyond understanding why people act the way that they do, I collaborate with you to apply that understanding to interventions that facilitate positive change.
