Client Review

  • I had met with Dan nearly 5 years ago when I was really struggling with depression and anxiety. He had helped me tremendously to understand my feelings, to learn to accept myself and ultimately overcome many of the hurdles that were negatively impacting my life. 5 years later, I came back in for some additional counseling, and I was floored by how much he remembered about me! He truly cares about his clients and wants nothing but the very best for them, and you can really feel that from him.

Client Review

  • My husband and I are so thankful for the tools and skills Dan has taught us in our sessions. We’ve tried marriage counseling with others in the past and none of their approaches proved to be helpful in teaching us skills that have worked for us or clicked for us, until we found Dan. He is an excellent teacher and mediator. His knowledge and expertise in his field are stellar. We are ever so grateful for what Dan has taught us and how it is helping us become better and stronger marriage partners.
