Therapist in Chicago, Illinois, Daniel Gaytan, LPC

Daniel Gaytan, LPC

I have a decade of counseling experience. I have practiced and used psychodynamic and relational theories as well as client centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, expressive therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy at University of Chicago Orthogenic School as well as at Chicago Public Schools, Children’s Home and Aid and Hillview Mental Health Center.

I also have a background in Jungian psychology and trans personal psychology, eco psychology, and expressive therapy at Naropa University at Boulder Colorado. I’m an actor and comedian as well and have been performing for decades and have a deep connection with the arts, performing and balancing that with my life. I’m enthusiastic, compassionate, confident, open minded and devoted to giving the support necessary with clients to help them lead a healthier lifestyle.
