My Approach to Helping

Is pain from your past and worry about your future hurting your present? As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional specializing in treating adults with a history of trauma, I am dedicated to helping you achieve a deeper understanding of yourself and others in order to heal from past experiences and live the life that is reflective of who you truly are! Utilizing integrative trauma therapy techniques, I customize my trauma-focused therapeutic approach to meet each individual client's narrative and needs.Feelings of depression, anxiety, isolation and insecurity can impair your functioning and inhibit traumatic healing. During our sessions, I will work with you to relieve these symptoms and promote true, lasting healing!

More Info About My Practice

I founded Daniel's Place Center For Healing to honor my brother's legacy in order to provide a safe space in which my clients could feel cared for and supported within a professional, therapeutic environment. I'm passionate about serving clients with empathy, humor, and warmth while empowering clients to heal their emotional pain and meet their personal goals.

Daniel's Place will be donating ten percent of its annual revenue to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline in an effort to promote suicide prevention and prevent incidents of suicide in America

My Therapy Focus

While working as a psychotherapist, I discovered that a large majority of my clients had a history of traumatic experiences that heavily influenced both the quality of their mental health as well as their social relationships. As a result, I pursued a post-graduate specialization in the treatment of trauma in order to most effectively and expertly impact my clients, and to help my clients live fully, instead of simply just 'surviving'.
