More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 4
State: VA

I have 10 years experience working in inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment centers, and I hold masters degrees in Social Service Administration and Public Policy with a concentration in Healthcare Administration. I dedicated my early career to mental health research and advocacy. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois, I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds to address anxiety, depression, substance abuse, family and relationship conflicts, career stress, and low self-esteem.

I always start with genuine empathy to create a safe, nonjudgemental space. I want my clients to feel comfortable being vulnerable and sharing their concerns. My eclectic treatment interventions pull primarily from behavioral, cognitive and motivational interviewing perspectives. I work together with my clients to find a strategy that specifically addresses their needs. Through developing coping skills, such as social functioning tools, healthy boundaries and positive self-talk, I want to help empower my clients to improve their quality of life.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I had a lot of anxiety, sadness, and guilt following the end of my engagement and the subsequent fever dream year I had with an old flame. I originally felt silly for seeking therapy because I felt like since I put myself in the position I was in I should have to deal with how overwhelmed I was feeling. Daryl was not only able to help me through a really hard part of my life but also piece together insecurities, anxieties, and other issues I didn't really even know I had. He explored my pop-culture interests to engage with me on a personal level and brought my therapy experience full circle in ways I didn't think were possible. I can literally feel the difference in my thought processes, and looking back I can't believe the changes in headspace, outlook, and overall mood I've had.

Daryl is great at listening to the heart of you what you share, and allowing time for expressing whatever is on your mind, while responding with care and compassion.

Though I have only seen Daryl twice so far, I come out of each session feeling validated, stronger, and normally laughing about something he said that helped me. He is extremely kind, and listens so well. I look forward to working with him more.

It’s pretty early on but my first session was great. Convenience and comfort means a lot to me and that’s exactly what I got.

Daryl is very responsive to questions and very supportive. He has a way of asking just the right questions. It seems like he's just interested and asking for clarification and suddenly we get to real breakthroughs.

Daryl is very personable and genuinely listens and expands on every detail of what I am saying or trying to say. He helped me realize and put things into perspective that I greatly struggled with. He is down to earth, upfront and honest and explains why I feel how I feel while helping to prevent my constant negative thinking. I couldn't be happier having Daryl as my counselor and would highly recommend.
