About Daniel

You have tremendous power. The power to define your world, your relationships, your life. The power to be your true self. Yet, life can bring challenges that make us feel powerless. Passion can turn into doubt, fear, and anger. Love and joy can become pain and emptiness. For many of us, no single event alone changes us, but at some point, we find ourselves lost.

I believe in the power of hope. I believe you can rediscover your strength, purpose, and sense of control. You can reclaim yourself—your courage, confidence, clarity, creativity, and compassion. I have hope that you can be who you want to be, no matter what comes your way.

I know how it feels to live with thoughts and emotions clouding your mind. My role is to create space for you to be yourself—to express and explore whatever you like, however you want. Everyone is welcome here—all traits, flaws, and peculiarities, no matter how intense, messy, painful, or hopeless. Let’s explore together and discover clarity and direction.

I draw from several therapeutic approaches to tailor an integrative style suited to your needs. If you would like to know more about my approach, feel free to reach out by phone or email. Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Let’s take the first step together and see where it leads us.


Daniel’s Story

Looking out of a Bay Street window on my first day as a therapist, it was as if I had entered an alternate universe. Having moved to Canada a few years prior with a dream of continuing my legal career, finally being on Bay Street felt like home. However, I could never have imagined that I would arrive there with a ponytail, a cardigan, and a copy of The Gift of Therapy! As I gazed out at downtown Toronto, the past decade I had spent posturing in suits to be imposing and impress the courtroom (and clients) was suddenly all behind me. Yet, at the same time, I knew this was exactly where I was always supposed to be.

Therapy was a transformative experience for me. I found the strength to reconcile my cultural confusion as an immigrant and my purpose in life. Decades of inner conflict, confusion, anger, and anguish had cleared and left me with peace. My sincere hope is to help others gain access to the resources I found in therapy, so that they too might come to discover themselves and take authorship of their lives.
