"The need to be closely related to others is as basic as any biological need, and is... equally necessary to survival." - Irvin Yalom
About Daniel Covert, LMSW
Hello! My name is Daniel, and I'm here to join you in your personal exploration towards a life you have chosen to live that values your own authentic perspectives and desires! Let me be your hype-man! My practice style is relational and client-centered. I utilize an eclectic approach based on your needs. Whether you need a safe place to vent and receive emotional support, or if you feel disconnected from your body and need a more action-oriented approach with coping tools or specific interventions - I got you!
Most people pursuing therapeutic services are managing symptoms including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and dealing with major life transitions; which all may be contributing symptoms to struggles that go deeper than the surface. These deeper challenges do not scare me, nor are they something that should scare you. Our bodies simply respond to experiences, and investigating these experiences through a compassionate lens is my goal with you in therapy. I strive to provide a safe and accepting environment in which all persons can explore their specific concerns in a confidential setting. My practice philosophy emphasizes non-judgemental methods that include psychodynamic therapy, IFS, TF-CBT, DBT, and relational approaches. I specialize in trauma recovery, religious trauma, gender identity exploration, purity culture, and asexuality. I also have experience with eating disorders, suicidal ideation, and autism.
My clientele focus is primarily with adolescents and young adults of all genders. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and others) and enthusiastically celebrate your personal path to discovering who your most authentic self truly is!
Life hits hard! And whether you're navigating life transitions, trauma recovery, discovering who you are, or challenges with people pleasing; we will work through it together to create a plan that addresses your needs. Please know you're not alone.
