About Daniel Kelley-Petersen

My counseling experience includes working with individuals and groups within a social justice and advocacy framework that includes personal mental health counseling and career counseling. I draw from my experience working with people from multiple identities and backgrounds, throughout the lifespan. I believe the counseling process is an unfolding relationship between the client(s) and the counselor with the focus on building and maintaining trust as critical to the success of therapy. Therapy is a safe space to gain self-awareness and strength which can be used as a tool in the pursuit of living a full and authentic life.
