My name is Daniel. I am a therapist with Deep Eddy Psychotherapy.
I believe that finding the “right” therapist for you is important. While I believe that you would be able to work with all therapists successfully, each therapist is unique. Every member of the Deep Eddy Psychotherapy team offers a different perspective and approach. Starting with a therapist that you feel may be a better “fit” with your personality and values may facilitate an easier and more comfortable transition into the therapy process.
Below I have included some personal and professional information about myself. Additionally, you will find a list of concerns that I commonly address in therapy. I encourage you to review the biographies of a few therapists to make a more informed decision for yourself.

Assessment / Testing:
In addition to therapy, I offer psychological assessment, also known as psychological testing. Psychological assessment is a specialized service provided to 1) identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses, 2) understand underlying issues and provide diagnostic clarity, and 3) offer recommendations based on test results.
While assessment and therapy are separate services, they can often go hand-in-hand. Assessment can identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses, which can inform the creation of personalized strategies for school, work, and interpersonal relationships. These personalized strategies specifically aim to draw upon cognitive strengths and minimize reliance on cognitive weaknesses. When an individual is actively leveraging their own personal strengths, their level of experienced stress is likely to decrease. Additionally, assessment can provide an increased understanding of underlying issues. This understanding can help clarify therapeutic goals, which ultimately leads to a more efficient and effective therapy process.
Common issues that I currently test for include (but are not limited to):
- ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder)
- Learning Disorders
- IQ and Intellectual Functioning (giftedness, intellectual disability, etc.)
- Emotional Disorders (depression, anxiety, trauma, etc.)
I do not provide capacity evaluations, custody evaluations, or other forensic assessments.
