Professional statement

Daniel has been working in Private Practice in recent years and has had experience working with a variety of concerns and ages. He has experience counseling adolescents and young adults at the University of St. Francis, assisting students with life transitions, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and trauma, mood disorders, family issues, and time/ organizational management. He works to build strong relationships with his clients. Daniel meets clients where they are and provides an environment that is open, honest, and judgement free. He understands that everyone comes from different experiences and environments, which is embraced and considered within the counseling relationship.

Daniel utilizes a Cognitive Behavior approach, teaching clients to understand how their thoughts and behaviors co-exist; working to make small improvements by re-framing perspectives and changing undesired behavioral patterns. Daniel also works from a mindfulness perspective, teaching clients to work towards being present, and achieving comfort with mind and body awareness, which aids in attention and anxiety related concerns. Additionally, Daniel helps patients to understand their strengths and successes to build the confidence to move forward.

Daniel also has experience working with the Hoffman Estates Soccer Club and the track team at North Park University. He has worked with boys and girls in youth and college sports with ages ranging from 6 to 20, collaborating with individual athletes and teams. He uses a Cognitive Behavioral and Mindfulness approach to help athletes with anxiety, attention, communication, and motivation. He has used visualization and sensory exercises to attune athlete’s minds with their bodies, which allows them to build every aspect of their performance. Daniel uses creative activities and discussions to address any concern based on the needs of the athlete.

Message to clients

Life gets complicated, and sometimes, even if it’s hard to admit, we might need a little help from others. Well, you have come to the right place. We find ourselves in many different places as we navigate through life; family issues, relationships, education, transitions, and managing daily responsibilities are just some of the many areas or our life that need attending to. By meeting every client where they are at, I strive to create a safe environment where we can build a trusting relationship and work together to define goals and interventions that work for you!

I like to be a team in this process. Being creative and flexible to ensure that you receive the tools that work best for you is my goal. You can expect me to have a down to earth, genuine approach to conversation and integration of techniques that will serve you well. I am open book and am always willing to gather feedback from my Clients about what they like and do not like, so we can find productive solutions.
