Many of his clients arrive at therapy wanting to learn how to better manage their emotions, which might range from heavy sadness, to intense anger, to feelings of loneliness or longing. Danny offers culturally competent, affirming therapy services for clients of all backgrounds, identities, and situations.

Danny’s approach to therapy is integrative including psychodynamic, existential, Rogerian, REBT, and cognitive behavioral. He strives to create a strong therapeutic bond with his clients from their first session, when he gets to know them and learns about their mental health goals. He encourages clients to think about their life goals, their values, and what brings them feelings of fulfillment. He is a strengths-based therapist who believes that each person brings unique traits to the table, and that every client is resilient in their own ways. Clients also practice mindfulness skills to help them stay grounded, especially in the face of overwhelming emotion.
