About me

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Michigan with 7 years of experience working with diverse populations. I have worked with clients struggling with a wide range of concerns such as anxiety, trauma, depression, low self-esteem, relationship struggles, career struggles, difficulties with their sense of self, existential concerns, and adjustments to life events or transitions.
My style and approach to therapy is collaborative, attentive and empathetic. I focus on the client’s strengths and highlight those strengths to address client’s concerns and or struggles. I approach therapy from a client centered perspective. In other words, I am not the expert on you, however I will do my best in helping you facilitate, participate and challenge yourself on your journey to growth, healing, and change. Concrete, reachable goals, time and space that is for you and unconditional positive regard, I believe are pillars of therapy that create a therapeutic environment with you (the client) in mind. Therapy is not easy. Therapy can be euphoric one session and heavy the next, but ultimately restorative and fulfilling. If you are committed to your personal well-being and want someone to support and guide with you, I am here and ready when you are. I look forward to working with you.

This is my first time doing any type of therapy, and I was nervous to start. I feel very comfortable talking to Dayln and am grateful for his help.

I've tried a few different therapists on BetterHelp and Dalyn was by far the best match for me. He is very thoughtful, kind, and calming and is always respectful even when discussing topics that are embarrassing or anxiety-provoking for me. I really appreciate the way he takes the time to think about what I've said and reframe or summarize the issue I raised in a different way to help me think through different aspects of the issue and how/why I feel the way I do about it. I've had an overall great experience with him so far and I look forward to continuing to discuss issues with him.
