Dan specializes in building connections with individuals, couples and families, especially through humor. He uses a direct approach addressing relationship issues, depression, anxiety, addiction, anger, trauma, ADHD, and grief. He enjoys playing a role in keeping marriages and families together and rebuilding relationships after events in life pull people apart.
 
Dan plays a consultant's role. He respects self-determination and believes that each person is responsible for their own life and decisions, but there is a need for objective input, ideas, and energy to make changes. He hopes each person feels comfortable enough to be honest and fully express what he or she is thinking, feeling and wanting.
 
In addition to counseling, in the best interests of the children, Dan mediates divorces and other issues that could potentially become expensive, time-consuming, and draining. Or, Dan provides co-parenting counseling or reunification therapy to reduce anxiety and anger in children who are estranged or alienated. Supervised visitation is also available if needed. 
 
Dan has worked over 20 years in social service settings. Dan is experienced as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and is a trained, court-approved divorce mediator, Nationally Certified Parenting Coordinator, and a Certified Anger Management Specialist. He is trained as a child custody evaluator and is a member of the Association for Conflict Resolution, Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, the Professional Academy of Custody Experts, the National Anger Management Association, the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science and the Illinois Mental Health Counselors Association. Dan has been a live-in houseparent to over forty abused or neglected children. He also has been a foster parent, a consultant to group homes and foster homes, and a Clinical Director. He earned his B. A. in Psychology at Trinity College and his M. A. in Clinical Psychology at Wheaton College.
