Dan's Style

I'm a licensed therapist with a passion for helping men overcome trauma, addiction, and mental health challenges. As a man myself, I understand the unique pressures and expectations that men face, and I believe that seeking help is a sign of strength and courage.


I specialize in working with men who are struggling with addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and other mental health concerns. My approach is collaborative, strength-based, and grounded in practices, such as brainspotting, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and harm reduction addiction counseling. I believe that every person has the capacity for growth, healing, and change, and I work with my clients to develop individualized treatment plans that incorporate their strengths, values, and goals.


Whether you're struggling with addiction, PTSD, or relationship issues, my goal is to help you build the skills and resilience you need to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. If you're ready to take the first step towards healing and recovery, I'm here to help. Contact me today to schedule a consultation and begin your journey towards a brighter future.
