Dan Fajans, MA, LMHCA, CDPT
Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate
Dan's specialty areas:
- Premarital Counseling
- Male-identified Individuals (often referred to as "men's issues")
- Anxiety & Depression
- Adults with ADHD
I have always worked very hard in session for and with my clients, but because I love what I do it's never a challenge to find the motivation, energy, and passion needed to sustain this. Quality therapy really does require that the therapist truly love this field, and any client or colleague of mine can attest to my desire to be in the role of therapist to individuals and couples of all gender expressions and sexual orientations.
People often seek me out specifically for help moving from stressed and anxious to more relaxed and at peace. Sometimes healthy relationships are a mystery so I'm sought out to help you get more skilled at being the partner you want to be. Perhaps you experience depression and want to get back to engaging in your life in meaningful ways.
Relationship Counseling in Seattle
Your relationship may seem near the end of its life, or it may be thriving and you want to keep it that way, or most likely something in-between. It's never too early, or too late, for relationship therapy and I love guiding couples through whatever situation they find themselves in, using the experience and expertise I have as a qualified therapist. I use various relationship therapy approaches, including the Gottman Therapy approach through the Gottman Institute, to assist couples in communication, conflict-management skills, emotional connection, and many of the other lovely challenges us couples face. Relationships are tough, even great ones, but a trained and competent couples therapist can help.
Let me use the skills and training I have as a therapist for couples and individuals to help get you where you want to go. Whatever challenges you're facing, working with a qualified therapist opens new possibilities for hope, and creates changes that last!
Other specialties I offer include adults with ADHD, transitioning from boyhood to manhood, parents of children with behavior problems, and problematic technology use.
Education and Experience
I have a Master of Psychology (Counseling Specialization) from the Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS) program of Saybrook University. Though I have training in a number of therapeutic disciplines, I have received specialized advanced training in Lifespan Integration (LI), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy Plus (CBT+).
Some non-therapy passions include travel, playing music, and enjoying obscure board games with family & friends.
