Dan Rafferty, MA, LCPC
I am trained in short-term solution-focused therapies and longer-term depth work to meet the varying needs of the adolescents, adults or families engaged in seeking help. Clients come to me to address a lack of fulfillment, conflicts, self-defeating thoughts and difficulties controlling impulses. Many clients come in seeking clarity on a direction forward and to seek help getting unstuck from past patterns, whether in their families or within themselves. I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, recovering from trauma, relationship issues, questions of identity, career clarification, and processing loss.
Whether you have a known stressor in your life or a more general sense that something doesn't feel right, I tailor your therapy to help return you to your healthiest and clearest sense of self. As a goal, I hope for my clients to feel a restoration of joy, flexibility, ambition, and playfulness.
I received my master’s in mental health counseling from Antioch University in Seattle and an undergraduate degree in English literature from Haverford College. I have experience working with adolescents, young adults and their family systems in wilderness based programs as well as outpatient psychotherapy for adolescents and adults.
I have day and afternoon hours available.
