CFSBKer Dan H Launches his own Psychotherapy Practice
I hope everyone has been able to remain healthy during this challenging and trying period, it’s been nice seeing a lot of you back in group class. I’m writing to share the news that I have launched my own psychotherapy practice, and I’m available for new clients. I’ll share a little background about myself.
As some of you may know, 5 years ago I decided to change careers and returned to school for a masters in social work, with the goal of one day beginning a private practice in psychotherapy. After graduating from the Columbia School of Social Work, I took a job at Methodist Hospital in their inpatient psychiatric unit. My work supported people in acute distress — people with substance abuse issues, people who were suicidal, people in the midst of a psychiatric episode — to help them get connected with services they needed when they were at their most vulnerable moments.
In March 2020, as the pandemic took hold of the US, the psychiatric unit closed and I began working on a pulmonary ICU unit, where I helped families coping with new loss, and patients who had survived experiences like intubation, and the traumas associated with that.
I am in the midst of a 3-year post graduate program in Somatic Experiencing (SE), which I find incredibly connected with what CrossFit South Brooklyn cultivates. SE helps people by allowing them to process past events, both mentally and physically. For instance, someone may recognize they are activated or in freeze mode, and may have “processed that” mentally, but their bodies haven’t. I can help with that.
I’m passionate about working with people who have experienced all different types of trauma, as well as those coping with grief, loss, performance anxiety, and issues of self-worth.
If you know anyone, or anyone’s child 14+, who is interested in learning a bit more about my practice, I am taking referrals. You can check out my Psychology Today profile, or give people my email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone number 718-499-8192.
Thanks so much,
