We all have a role we play in life. In fact, we all have countless roles to play. Shakespeare put it best:
“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts…” -As You Like It
Sometimes it can feel like we’ve gotten lost in the narrative or that we are a supporting character in someone else’s story. Daniel believes wholeheartedly that the stories of our lives are ours to tell, to transform, and to interpret, though we may need some help getting back in the driver’s seat. We can learn to play new roles, as well as put aside those that no longer serve us.
Daniel has experience working with substance abuse groups, groups of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, adults with autism, as well as with individuals navigating a myriad of issues such as anxiety and depression. He has training in traditional talk therapy methods as well as drama therapy, other creative arts therapies, and assorted embodied techniques. Together, Daniel and his clients find the right mix to keep everyone comfortably challenged.
While Daniel is perfectly at home working with neurotypical folks (people whose brains work closely to what society has decided is “normal”), he has a special passion for bringing mental healthcare to adults on the spectrum and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. He has years of experience working with these populations and finds expressive, narrative, and creative interventions to be an effective supplement for people whose communicative strengths lie outside of verbal speech. Wherever you are coming from, Daniel is ready to hear your story and to help you pen the next chapter.
