I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, licensed in Arizona. I have been practicing for sixteen years and own a counseling practice in Surprise, AZ. I am also approved as a clinical supervisor in AZ and work with both interns and associate counselors as they pursue degrees in counseling and acquire hours toward independent licensure. I find it very rewarding to help give back to the future generation of mental health practitioners. I am a native of WI but have called AZ my home since 2006.
Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. As a licensed professional counselor, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I specialize in individual, couples, and family counseling. I also focus on adolescent and young adult issues and have extensive experience in this area. As a bio-psycho-social-spiritual counselor, I believe in treating the whole person. I work from a Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance/Commitment Therapy, and Family Systems approach to counseling. Psychotherapy requires an active effort and commitment from the client, this is important in order to most effectively identify areas of concern and desired treatment goals. Counseling is an exploration of deep, personal life issues and areas of one's life that may have been buried for any number of reasons.
If you are ready to reclaim true control in your life or ready to redefine who you are and where you would like to go in life, schedule an appointment with me.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Coaching, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Abandonment, Attachment Issues, Blended Family Issues, Body Image, Codependency, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Dependent Personality, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD), Divorce and Separation, Family of Origin Issues, Family Problems, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Infidelity, Mood Disorders, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Self-Love, Social Anxiety and Phobia

Daniel has been such an amazing therapist and my biggest thing about him is he doesn’t let you give up on yourself and he showed me this by him not giving up on me. He reaches out and is genuinely wanting to help get you better. I have a lot of respect for his patience and his drive and hope to match it. I believe with him as my therapist I’ll be able to do so.

When I speak with Daniel I feel at ease. I don’t feel like it’s a therapy session. Daniel is down to earth and make things flow naturally.
He is professional and know his field of work.
When Daniel has not heard from me in a while he reaches out to me to ensure I am ok.
