Dan's approach is from a person-centered perspective, driven by curiosity and the belief that each client has a compelling story to share. His psychodynamic methodology draws from the premise that our present lives represent the sum total of our life experiences, and that people are designed with a desire to connect with ourselves and the world around us. When that connection is disrupted in some way, people may begin to experience disease. Dan's holistic view takes into account how vitally important it is to discover and maintain one's mind, body, and spirit connection in order to live the best life possible. He appreciates having the privilege of sharing in that bold adventure with his clients.

About Dan Dietrich
Dan earned his bachelor’s degree in speech communications and masters in counseling psychology from North Park University and has leveraged his innate ability to connect with others into a career as a counselor. He has counseled primarily men of all ages. He especially has a burden for young men experiencing life challenges. He has worked with patients on the autism spectrum as well as patients with a wide variety of mental health diagnoses. His personal journey has informed his belief that we all may benefit from psychotherapy at different points in life. It’s just like caring for any discomfort we have whether it’s a broken bone or a broken spirit. Dan cherishes the privilege of caring for those with a broken spirit.
