About Dan

Hello, my name is Daniel Lawson. I am a NYS Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over a decade of clinical experience. 

If you are a Catholic man or woman working to overcome issues in your relationships, difficulties in your marriage, struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, anger, I can help. I effectively combine my faith with my psychological training to provide you with therapy you can trust, deeply rooted in Catholic Theology and Philosophy.

I am respectful of my clients beliefs – I am a devout and balanced Catholic that can bring a spiritual and faith-filled perspective into your counseling experience.

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them”

St. Teresa of Calcutta

Our Philosophy


Whatever you focus on gets bigger,  For that reason, I will highlight the positive so you are able to see what you are doing well.  This allows you to tackle the difficulties in your life with confidence.  It will also enhance your abilities to build solutions.  Let's see what's right with you.


I focus on small and realistic changes.  Every session ends with a plan co-developed by you to continue your progress.


You are the expert of your own experience. No one knows more about your life than you do.  My job is to ask the right questions. Our lives are the answers to the questions we ask.  Better questions, means a better life.
