Dan specializes in helping individuals with mental health concerns, including clinical concerns as well as struggles many of us commonly face. He earned his B.A. in Psychology at Cedarville University, OH, and his Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Wheaton College, IL. He has spent the last five years providing counseling to college students at Wheaton College, Radford University, and Virginia Tech. However, he is also excited to work with adults of all ages and backgrounds.
Dan’s professional interests include anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, shame, identity development, relational concerns, and issues related religious/spiritual identity. Dan’s approach to counseling is warm, empathic, and caring. At the same time, he will also challenge you to embrace new perspectives and make changes as necessary to achieve the change you desire to see. Whether there is pain from which you are seeking relief or goals you can’t quite accomplish on your own, he seeks to empower and equip you to grow into more of the person you want to be – and to respect and care for the person you already have become! Dan is especially passionate about empowering Christians to draw closer to their Lord and Savior and to other believers in the areas of their lives where they experience the most pain and difficulty. At the same time, Dan is excited to work with individuals of diverse religions (including those who are not religious).
Dan serves in our Blacksburg and Christiansburg offices, and also provides virtual care in 25 states.
In his free time, Dan enjoys playing games and getting outdoors with his 10-month-old
daughter, Ziva, and wife, Marybeth.
