If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, social isolation, relationship issues, or just general life dissatisfaction, I can help you to get your life back on track. My online counseling approach is for anyone ready to make changes in their lives, but especially for those at a crossroads, facing a difficult challenge, or who have become frustrated realizing that past approaches no longer work.
I offer new ways for improving your resilience and reaching your goals using behavioral psychology, habit formation, and performance improvement. For some, this may involve exploring patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that get in the way, while others may benefit from a more solution-oriented approach that works to identify specific goals and how to reach them.
I graduated with a Masters Degree in Counseling in 1999. As a Licensed Professional Counselor I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings, providing group and individual therapy. In 2014 I shifted my approach to a Positive Psychology and Wellness Model, after realizing the limitations of symptom/illness-based approaches used in most mental health facilities. Since that time I have expanded my training and practice, drawing from several disciplines such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Theory, Positive Psychology as well as Optimize Coaching and Recovery Coaching.
Working togther we will create the changes you want to see in 5 steps:
1. Looking at where you are and where you want to be
2. Creating the motivation, optimism and vision to get what you really want
3. Exploring the possibilities, making preparations and planning for the outcomes
4. Making a commitment to change
5. Taking first steps, big or small

Dan is a great therapist! He truly listens to everything I have to say and gives the best advice. I had a terrible experience with my first therapist which made me weary about therapy but he made me feel very assured that therapy does help!
