I wake to sleep and take my waking slow. I learn by going where I have to go. —Theodore Roethke
Welcome. How are you?
I feel blessed to serve people as they uncover, empower and benefit from their own built-in drives toward peace, enjoyment, wholeness, freedom and satisfaction.
I've been trained in indigenous forms of consciousness exploration, as well as Hakomi Mindful Somatic Counseling, Relational Somatic Healing, Breema bodywork, Dharma of Trauma (fundamentals), and creative modalities including writing, dance, improvisation, and art making. These modalities and explorations have brought great peace and transformation to my life, and I'm honored to guide others using what I've learned.
When you come to me for spiritual counsel and guidance, we co-create a healing relationship around your intentions for your life. I have tremendous faith in your path toward health and your potential to wake ever more fully to all of life's possibilities.
Reach me at email@example.com to discuss your visions of your best life.
Words from those I've served (shared anonymously)
"Thank you for everything, Daniel. The positive thing is that this is the first time I'm feeling hopeful that there is a path forward to healing because it hasn't felt like that ever before."
"The work we're doing has supercharged my growth, and it’s fun!"
“A friend asked me what medicine work has done for me. The first answer that came out was, ‘I've reconciled with my parents, and I'm happy to be alive for the first time in my life.’"
"Coming to this work 2 1/2 years ago was such a turning point, and having that safe container to really get my bearings was invaluable. It makes me so happy to know that you'll be working with many folks as your practice continues to develop."
"I feel like [the person I referred] is in one of the best, most grounded places in [their] life since working with you. [They are] setting more boundaries and making many changes while also being patient. From the outside, whatever you're doing is really working." —From a therapist, after making a referral six months before. Client's name and gender have been anonymized.
"Working with Daniel over the past year has been profound, and I'm deeply grateful for his guidance. From the physical space, to the music, to the quality of his attention, Daniel creates a healing environment that has allowed the most vulnerable parts of me to come out of hiding and be seen. I'm in awe of the work and Daniel's trust in the process to allow a co-creation to unfold, and I am certainly a different person today because of it. I'm delighted by this growth and I look forward to discovering what's next!"
"I'm doing well! I continue to reap the benefits of my first journey and can't believe sometimes how effectively it changed my perspective."
“A dramatic shift for the better. I think it may have saved our marriage.” —From the spouse of a client
"I believe that Daniel's vibrant spiritual life and his own journeys in meditation have provided him with a deep well of trust in the process. He never held himself out as an elevated authority but it was clear to me that he had done extensive research, both academic and personal. He is fascinated by the myriad expressions of the human experience, and he is open to the mystery of it all. I believe he holds each client the way he held me; with openness, respect and deep caring."
"Daniel, you have held my hand and guided me to shine light into places that need it. Thank you for allowing your gentle kindness to move through you toward me. I appreciate your presence and centeredness. Thank you for reflecting back to me keen observations and insights that are so helpful. My heart is full."
