"Dan has been really helpful. He is great at giving applicable and practical advice as well as tools to learn from. He helped me apply what we worked on, and held me accountable, which seemed to matter the most in reaching my personal and professional goals. Highly recommend!"

"Dan has been awesome. He’s very responsive and I feel like he understands my situation. He helps me look at things from a different perspective and gives me tools to overcome my challenges. Just knowing that someone cares is huge, but he goes above and beyond that and keeps me focused on the future as well as on the steps I need to take to get there."

One of the foundations of the Path4Change process is Motivational Interviewing, a conversational style that will strengthen YOUR OWN motivation and commitment to change. Each session you and I will work collaboratively, but I will regard you as the expert in your life, and will help you decide what will work best for you, at a pace that will match your specific needs based on your feedback in the sessions.
My hope is to help you strengthen, stretch beyond your comfort zone, and learn new ways for improving your life. For some people this may involve exploring old patterns of thought and behaviors and to replace these with more positive coping skills. Others may benefit from a more solution-oriented approach that works to identify specific life goals and how to reach them.
I tailor my approach based on input and feedback from you. My goal as a therapist is to help you learn strategies to achieve your goals independent of me. Like you, I am always learning and growing and my treatment philosophy and therapeutic approach has evolved over time as new research findings become available, and as I learn from my experiences with my clients.
