Daniel has been a licensed professional counselor in the state of Virginia since February of 2016 after completing a three-year full-time residency at a community mental health center. During that time, Daniel worked with a wide variety of client populations including children, adults and couples. He regularly facilitated group therapy for adults in mental health crisis and led a social skills group for children on the Autism Spectrum. During his residency, Daniel had the privilege of helping to establish and supervise a brand-new Christian counseling branch at the facility.   

Prior to this experience, Daniel completed his practicum at Ft. Belvoir Army Base and worked with military personnel and their families. As a veteran of the Marine Corps, Daniel has a passion for working with active military, veterans, and their families. Next, Daniel completed an internship with Life Christian Counseling Network and continued to work with LCCN throughout his residency to the present day. He has been blessed with the opportunity to integrate his Christian faith with evidence-based counseling practices at every stage of his career. He believes that faith and sound science are never opposed to one another, but complement each other to the benefit of the individual. Daniel’s priority is to create a safe, welcoming space where men, women, and children can be reminded of how highly God values them as they work through the difficulties in their lives.

Daniel especially enjoys working with adults seeking personal growth or emotional healing, and couples looking to prepare for, or improve their marriage. He looks forward to working with a diverse population of client’s who share a common belief in the healing power of God. The passage of Scripture that he most identifies with as a counselor is John 15:5: 

“I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing.” This reminds Daniel of the importance of humility in the counseling profession and that it is Jesus who is the true healer. Only by remaining connected to the vine that is Jesus Christ can the counselor fully act as a branch that will bear much fruit in his or her work with clients.    

Currently, Daniel is available to work with clients living in the greater Charlottesville area. Additionally, Dan is available for Skype or phone sessions. He is a practicing Roman Catholic and lives with his young daughter and son in the Charlottesville area. They enjoy hiking, eating out, and visiting historical landmarks in the area.
