Dan Dimick is Licensed Psychologist and a Licensed and Marriage Family Therapist with over three decades of experience in helping people face their mental health and relationship issues. He works with individuals, couples and families. His areas of expertise include:
- Trauma informed therapy
- Grief and loss
- Couples therapy
- Family therapy
- The intersection of spirituality and mental health
Dan’s approach in therapy is straightforward. He works to build a bond of trust with his patients. Within this context of trust, he helps clients address three goals applied to their unique situation:
- Help people reduce their levels of anxiety and depression.
- Help people gain new skills and strategies in order to address life problems more effectively.
- Help people face with clarity and courage the common, underlying root issues of unresolved trauma, grief and loss, which typically lead to mental health and relationship problems.
Whether he is working with a couple struggling with injured trust, a person facing crippling anxiety, or a family that is coming apart at the seams, he tries to infuse clients with a sense of hope so that they can build healthier lives and relationships. As a therapist, Dan’s curiosity makes him listen intently for the obstacles and opportunities within his clients. He is fascinated with human behavior, the role of memory, communication and language, and ultimately the process which leads to healing. In therapy he is driven by two central questions: What will help the client grow and bring them relief from their pain? And second, what does the client’s story teach about the experience of being human? These two questions flow through his sessions, helping clients reflect on how they might be healthier in body, mind, spirit and social relationships.
