Daniel Goldstein, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

MSW (2008) Social Work, University of Kansas

Interests Include: Men’s issues, identity development, multicultural issues, shame, family-of-origin issues, relationship difficulties, and group therapy.

My foundational assumption is that human beings have a natural tendency toward growth and healing and that dis-ease often occurs when this natural process gets stuck or blocked. Therefore, my goal as your counselor is not to change who you are or what you do. Instead, my aim is to collaboratively and respectfully help you develop an embodied awareness of how you interrupt your natural process of growth and development. In turn, I believe this awareness, along with a strong sense of safety and support, can then free you up to explore and experiment with new, more satisfying ways of being, first in the therapeutic relationship and then in your everyday life.

I value and appreciate each individual and their unique inherent strengths within their own context when approaching counseling as a collaborative process between counselor and client. My theoretical approach is integrative, strength-based, and solution-focused by nature that considers the many systems an individual identifies with as I believe no one approach fits for all. I also practice from a social justice framework that promotes multicultural sensitivity by appreciating and respecting differences within the counseling relationship. I hope to create a safe supportive space where students feel they can be open and feel heard without fearing to be judged while reaching their goals.
