Dan’s work as a counselor is rooted in compassion, respect for the agency of others, and the belief that everyone is trying their best to get by with the emotional tools they have. His eclectic approach to psychotherapy is informed by humanistic, transpersonal, psychodynamic, and neurocounseling theories, as well as other trauma-informed modalities. Furthermore, Dan’s previous work in substance use treatment, crisis intervention, and community-based care has led to a deep sense of humility and respect for the resiliency of the human spirit and the importance of diversity.
To better help others along their journey, Dan completed a BA in Psychology with a focus on neuroscience at Wabash College (2016), followed by a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Northwestern University (2018) with a focus on child development and psychodynamic theory. He continues to develop an expertise in masculinity-related issues, trauma resolution, and addictions treatment, as well as treating a wide variety of mental illnesses. Alongside his work as a counselor, Dan is passionate about human rights advocacy, nutrition literacy and accessibility, and drug policy reform. We are all fellow travelers searching for meaning, love, and the skills to cope with our increasingly modern world.
Dan also enjoys backpacking, rock climbing, meditation, playing music with friends, and going to all of the concerts.
