My name is Danny (he/him) and I believe the foundation of any important relationship, including a therapeutic one, is trust, safety, and openness. In fostering a space where these qualities are prioritized, new ways of being with yourself and others can be explored and practiced.
I am passionate about helping people understand their bodies and emotions, since at times they can seem overwhelming and mysterious. I believe the same goes for relationship work – understanding what is happening for yourself and others is key to fostering new relational patterns. I use modalities that work to integrate thoughts, feelings, and body sensations, all with a relational/attachment and trauma-informed lens.
As a queer person growing up in a religious environment, I bring a nuanced lens to working with conflicting identities and adverse religious experiences. Further, I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BCACC and I have a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. This provides a specialized lens when working with multiple people in the therapy room. Most importantly, my warmth and compassion allow folks to feel welcome bringing all parts of themselves to the table.
